This issue includes a Centrefold FREE PLAN designed by Ron Rees for 'The Amazing'. This is a universal hard chine hull, made from Depron, that can be easily adapted to suit the huge range of modern, and not so modern, fast boats. Depron is inexpensive, easily cut and glued, and a hull can be made in a few hours by anyone who work safely with a modeller's knife. Ron has completed his example as a US Swift PCF boat powered by a single small brushless motor, but the choice is yours as the hull can be scaled to whatever is most practical for the model builder. He is also completing his unique model of the Targa 37 Thames police launch, previously featured in the September and October 2014 issues.

USS Columbus is a unique American warship model and it is featured in depth in Range Finder. 2014 is the 70th anniversary of D-Day in 1944 and to celebrate that a group of Model Boats' readers who are regular 'posters' on our Free Forum, organised a successful event at Bushy Park in early June and a report is included in these pages.

2014 has also been a great year for British model yachtsmen, with Brad' Gibson winning once again the World Radio Controlled Marblehead Championship held this time in Holland, so 'Well Done' to him for that achievement. In Readers' Models there are a range of your inspirational craft featured, including a fine free-sailing model of HM Bark Endeavour and in Around the Clubs, the Victoria Model Steamboat Club celebrated their 110 years of existence this last summer

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.
