The present publication is a real windfall for the ship modelers. Bill Shoulder, the author of the book will describe the construction of the model of the famous "Speedy" - note that the volume is prepared and aimed at the "scratch" model makers who normally work from the very basic drawings; however, the content of the book will be of equal interest for the builders who use the kit of parts.

The scale applied is 1 to 48and the efforts of the maker will eventually result in a model having a hull of 18 inches in length while the overall length of the rigged cutter and the height are approximately 30 inches. The vessel is carvel built and has eight guns carried on board. You must be aware that some of those cutters were built clench, however by the period addressed in the book, i.e. 1820s, carvel construction was a bit more usual.

In short, if you are a ship modeling enthusiast, does not matter professional or just a newcomer, have a look into this publication and who knows, maybe you will make a decision to go though the content very carefully and start making your own copy of the model - yes, it is absolutely possible, you only have to follow all the instructions provided for you in the pages of this publication.
