Sutcliffe Commodore 001

More elaborate than the Hawk , the clockwork Commodore is one of my favourites. Again , the beautiful artwork on the box compliments this lovely boat.

The Kestrel is structurally identical to the clockwork Commodore but with an electric motor powered by 2 'C' cells.The Kestrel proved not as popular as the Commodore.Maybe, this was because any parent buying the Kestrel for their child had to purchase batteries too !

A not too clever video of a Sutcliffe Kestrel sailing a wide arc of a sailing pond near Runcorn Cheshire.
