RAF RTTL Mk III
« on: October 09, 2017, 08:26:07 PM »

I'm interested in the post-WWII RAF RTTL Mk 3 boats (good thread here). I have a profile plan of such, below (plan one of two), but I'm missing the plan view and any lines or body plan... I was wondering if anyone out there has the second sheet please, or any other reliable material???

It is worth mentioning that
HMAFV STIRLING and HMAFV HALIFAX also later became HMS HART and HMS CORMORANT, respectively, so any plans bearing these names would also be mightily appreciated!

Many thanks in advance

Andy

I forgot to mention I also emailed Models by Design, who replied to say they don't carry RTTL Mk 3 plans (I'd been led to believe they did an HMAFV Stirling plan)  {:-{

Yes they did, but I think they sold them off with some other hulls and plans. I believe he sold some off to Mountfleet Models but I can't see it in their current range even though many others that used to be are.

Christian in Gibraltar has a 1/72 scale hull and might be persuaded to make a larger scale version.
