I have added a couple of photos to an album. I have been told that it is a Liverpool lifeboat by the owner, but a friend says it is a whaleboat. Can anybody identify the correct type of boat, preferably with its manufacturer and/or class/model.
Living in hope

Hi Ray and welcome to the forum.
it does look like a whaler I must say . Not heard of a Liverpool lifeboat but I am no lifeboat man.
Neil is the geezer who knows all things lifeboat related, hopefully he will post.

The rope along the hull sides makes it look like a lifeboat at least!

Also,. if one does a hunt ont tinternet you will come across a similar vessel to which Ray has put on. It is of the Titanic Lifeboat / or similar.
So as they say, the choice is yours

That is a model produced by an Italian company of what they describe as a Titanic Lifeboat. If you compare it with real pictures of the Titanic boats it is not far off but is not completely accurate either. I have just converted one to a steam launch, and completely changed the scale, which will be covered in Model Boats Magazine in the not too distant future.

Thank you everybody who has posted a reply. I am in London at the moment so I may trawl (no pun intended) the antique shops and see if I can get a lead.

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.
