This book describes the building of a model of the 'Speedy', and is intended for the 'scratch' builder, working from the basic drawings, as much as for the builder using the kit of parts obtainable to accompany the book. The model is to a scale of 1/4" = 1'0" (1/48) and results in a model with a hull length of 18", an overall length rigged of 30" and some 30" high. She is carvel built, and carries eight 6 pounder guns. Some readers may be aware that some of these small cutters were clench built, although by the late 1820s, carvel building was more usual.
