Is it the old "Veron" Police Launch or a more modern vessel?   I`d be interested in obtaining a copy of the Veron vintage one. Any ideas ?

HI Joe, please confirm if you are after a copy of the 26 inches long Veron Police boat plans.

If you are email me or reply and I will send you a pm on someone who can possibly supply you a copy at a reasonable price.
regards Roy

The horns and searchlight, as originally sold as part of the kit, are still available from www.reademodels.com
note: the original kit supplied searchlight is the non illuminating.

Hope this helps
Tony.

Somewhere on 'Tinternet is a repro of the Veron police launch shown as an isometric (3D) explosion of the construction and also referrs to the full size Thames vessel, If only I had a memory, perhaps it might jingle someone elses'.

Some interesting information on www.thamespolicemuseum.org.uk/files/pictures/boats   Some alternates to the Veron version in the picture gallery.

Plans from:-
Phil Smith, 32 Verwood Crescent, Southbourne, Bournemouth. BH6 4JE

Sorry I don't have a phone number. Although Phil is in his 90's he is a great guy and responds quicky.
The GRP hull from Waverley looks worthwhile.

Plans for a different Police Launch are available from www.myhobbystore.com - looks to be on the lines of the photograph by arrow5.

Hi to all who have posted pictures.  I have saved them for later use.  I particularly liked the stretched police launch in the police picture gallery.
regards and thanks, Roy
