We recently found a beautiful model of HMS Sherbourne built by ship modeler Jon Gordon. The 1/64-scale model of the late 18th-century, 10-gun cutter was built from a Caldercraft kit, with modifications made.
HMS Sherbourne was designed by Sir Thomas Slade, who also designed HMS Victory, and was launched in December of 1763 for use against smugglers in the English Channel.
The kit is part of Caldercraft’s “Nelson’s Navy” series, which are almost all 1/64-scale kits.
There are a lot more photos of Mr. Gordon’s model on The NRG’s Model Ship World, and you can see them here: https://modelshipworld.com/gallery/album/1981-hm-cutter-sherbourne-by-edwardkenway/
For those interested in building their own model of the Sherbourne, we have the kit available at Ages of Sail for only $129. Ω

Those of you looking for a nice first model should take a look at these photos of Caldercraft’s HMS Sherbourne. This was the first wooden build by Jon Gordon. A beautiful job too!
