Pre war 12" Swallow.Sutcliffe made a 16" version of this boat named Commodore. Unfortunately, I do not have a Commodore...... yet !

16" unnamed cruiser.

12" Minx . The Minx was re-released in 1980 . It was very similar except that the windscreen was taken from the contemporary Tiger speedboat.

9" Zip. The decal on the 'engine cover' states that the motor is 'Supercharged'. The sedate progress across the boating pool suggests otherwise !

Re-released in blue in the late seventies.
