Hi Matt

I am also going to do a Liverpool Class lifeboat in my case it is a single screw one the Fifi and Charles which was stationed at Weston Super Mare 1932 to 1962.(Where I live)

Mike Mayhew of Waverly Models is making a mould for the Single screw version and also has the twin screw one I think.
He also does a large range of 1/12 scale fittings for lifeboats.
Try him for detailed plan dont know what he has

Which version are you looking at.

Allan wonderfull set of photos answers a lot of question on the deck and inside
