This bumper issue has 100 pages and includes Part One of a major mini-series for a model of the Botnia Marine Targa 37 Police Launch, the fantastic plan being available now,. Ron Rees has built this model from polystyrene foam to create a very light and fast scale replica, powered by a brushless motor, but it can also be built from wood or driven by a traditional brushed types of powerplant. The plan, is superbly drawn with 3D sketches and diagrams to facilitate model construction.

2014 is the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of World War One and to mark the occasion we have Part Two of Dave Wooley's critique on the warships of that great conflict and John Parker, one of our numerous Australian readers and contributors, has an excellent article about that country's first submarines of the E Class.Continuing the theme of warships from the early part of the last century, John Elliott has reviewed and built the 1:48 scale radio controlled semi-kit of a Steam Picket Boat, recently released by Chylds Hall Model Shipyard. A small model, but great fun nonetheless, and it has proved to be able to cope very well with the average pond conditions nowadays.

The Alvis Stalwart - was it an ammunition lorry or was it a boat? Well, a bit of both really and Ashley Needham's model of it, certainly swims without problems! He is a regular supporter of our unique associated model boating forum, where advice can be gained from many of our leading modellers.We also have all the usual regular articles, and more, so hopefully there is something in this bumper 100 page issue to inspire and motivate readers to further pursue this great hobby of ours.

History

Cutters evolved during the second quarter of the Eighteenth Century in Southeast England as swift channel vessels. They soon gained a deserved reputation for their speed, which was not unnoticed by smugglers who soon adopted the Cutter as their preferred smuggling craft. In turn, Cutters were employed by the British Customs Service to counter the smugglers. Cutters carried a large disproportional area of sail for their size and also served as advice yachts, packet boats and, during wartime, privateers.

The Sherbourne was built as a revenue vessel for the Customs Service. She was designed by Sir Thomas Slade, the designer of the famous Victory and was built and launched in 1763. After over 20 years of service, Sherbourne was sold in 1784 ~ a remarkably long career for such a small vessel. Sherbourne was 54' 6" long, 19' wide and had a draught of 8' 11". She carried a compliment of 30 men and was 85 tonnes. Armament consisted of 8 x3 pounder carriage guns and 10 swivel guns.
