UK Customs Cutter; Model: David McNair Taylor; Kit: Model Slipway.
David’s Comments: “Model is constructed from the Model Slipway Kit with little modification. Not a rough weather boat due to a slight top heavy weight and a high superstructure easily effected by a strong winds. The real boat was built for HM Customs for use in chasing smugglers and drug runners; constructed by Vosper Thornycroft and based on the Island Class patrol boats built for the US Coastguard. The construction of the wheelhouse window area is a bit of a challenge to get right.”
