I wish to build a 24th scale Vosper Air-Sea-Rescue launch.
I have a suitable 32" hull but want to scratch build the rest.
I have a few photographs, but does anybody know where I can get plans/drawings for the superstructure that are good enough to work from.
One of the main problems is the cross section of the bridge structure.
I would prefer to build one of the later launches eg 2754,2757,2767.
Or perhaps the (earlier?) 2554.
Any pointers would be welcome.

Thanks Mick.  Most impressive!
Do you have a head on shot of your RTTL?  I have spent the last 2 days drawing up plans for the wheelhouse with which I am happy except that I am not 100% certain about the cross section.
Incidentally I have photos of 2768 & 2769 (both white overall) which show the locker(s) in front of the wheelhouse made up of strips. What did you do?

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.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
