SENTINEL is a 34m Island Class cutter operated by the British Customs and Excise. Built by Vosper Thornycroft and launched in 1993 she has been designed to carry out a wide range of law enforcement duties. She is a modified version of an extremely successful Vosper Thornycroft design built under licence for the US Coastguard. SENTINEL is powered by two Paxman Valenta V12 diesel engines, with a separately powered steerable water jet for slow speed propulsion. Top speed is in excess of 25 knots.
The kit contains a detailed glassfibre hulll; printed styrene for decks and superstructure; etched brass for the fine details which include window frames; metal fittings and running gear complete with propellers and a resin-cast Avon Searider boat. The numerous perspective step-by-step assembly drawings and full size plan make SENTINEL a pleasure to build, and the twin rudders and stabilizers guarantee excellent handling on the water. (The flags, paints, adhesives and tools are not provided).
