Can anyone remember many years ago the free plan for the RNLI Tyne class lifeboat? The plan was in the scale of 5/8" to the foot.. Can anyone please tell me if that would of been 1/12 scale? I am having problems making the cabin windows, but have found a set that are in 1/12th scale. Would these be suitable for the Tyne which is 30" long.? Thank you to anyone that can help. Alan Hartill.

1" to one foot ie 1" to 12" is 1/12 th scale. 5/ 8" to one foot is 1 to 19 or about 1/20th scale.

as Tim says the Metcalf mouldings ABS vac formed hull which the plans were drawn for is made to 1;20th scale.
I blew them up to help with my build of the Mountfleet models GRP mouldings of the Tyne build i am writing in the build blogg section further down the page. if you have 12th scale frames, they will be much too large, but there is always an open market for 12th scale stuff on ebay.
if you are looking for dedicated lifeboat modelling help, you can always ask on these two facebook sites which as an admin on both, you are most welcome to join too. Those two sites are dedicated solely to building model lifeboats.
hope this helps.
