Enterprize Built 1888 JL Thompson

I am looking for images or plans for The Enterprize built in Aug 1888 by JL Thompson Sunderland and owned by Rowland and Marwood, Whitby. It was chartered to The Adelaide Steamship Co and was in Australia from Aug 1890 to Feb 1892. The Captain was John Miller. I am in possession of a model of an auxiliary brig screw steamer built and in the family since 1891. The model has nameplates of Enterprise and Enterprize, both spellings were in common use in newspapers at the time. I wish to confirm that the model is that ship and, if not look further. The model was a wedding gift in 1891 in Sydney therefore probability says that it was most likely the one. Newspapers at the time recorded its movements in and out of Aus. ports and return to Europe in 1892.
Any help with direction where to look very much appreciated

Enterprize/se model

Thanks to all for help with my quest. The picture of the wreck from ebay was helpful in eliminating the 1888 Enterprize from the list of possible ships that my model was based upon.
Given the timing of the ship in Sydney and the model's creation it looked quite probable but no.
I will now post some pictures of the model and look for other possible candidates. Hopefully with the knowledge out there on this website I will be more successful.
Cheers and thanks again
