A red and grey pressed steel clockwork model "Fury" Torpedo Boat, made by Sutcliffe Pressings.

Details

The boat is around 24cm long (plus rudder), and has a bulbous bright red hull, pale grey superstructure an a gold rim where the upper and lower pressings join.

The superstructure includes two fixed forward gun turrets, a bridge with (missing) mast and mast-holder, a long sloped funnel, a rear gun, and a double torpedo launcher.

Markings

The rear upper hull is embossed "SUTCLIFFE MADE IN ENGLAND" and there's a circular red, black and gold transfer on the upper surface just behind the prow, designed to look like a lifebelt, with the same words.

The boat is scheduled to be added to the boats display in late February 2017
