Thread: Veron Vosper Patrol boat

yes thanks - I now see how to do it - a great model.

As to figures, I have found some on ebay which may be suitable.

I have to admit I haven't found this album. There seem to be pages and pages of them with no search function so I got bored by about page 6.

I have made quite a lot of progress with the aid of Google. It seems to be a model of HMTS Courtland Bay and have found a few photos of the real thing as well as a few of the model.

The superstructure is wellon the way to completion and i will be doing some painting soon. I am going to stick with the Merco (I even have a spare one if needed) and will fit some of my surplus 35mhz kit.

I noticed on some of the photos superb model sailors. Does anyone know where to get these. They are approx 1/24 scale.

Hi all. I am new to this forum as my main hobby is RC aeroplanes rather than boats.

As my first lockdown project, I have completed a Revell Flower Class Corvette which I have converted to radio control. I managed to get a successful maiden voyage before Christmas but any further trials will have to wait.

My attention has turned to the Veron Vosper patrol boat. A friend of mine built one (probably in the 1960s) and after a bit of use it was consigned to the loft. I want to get it going again.

It is is generally good condition. It has a Merco 60, which seems to turn freely but might need replacing and the radio will definitely be replace with modern gear.

My main problem is with the bridge/ superstructure. The smaller items, masts, radar etc have been knocked off and I need some plans or photos to know what I have to replace. Some of the photos online show torpedoes each side but my friend doesn't think they were ever part of the kit.

Can anyone help?

Thanks david

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
