When will the life boat ones be ready and which boat are they based on?

The plan was to produce a set for each type of lifeboat
Scales 1=16, 1=24, 5/8"=1'
The prototype window assy has been produced and the level of detail established, i.e rivet heads etc
The level of detail significantly affects the price
However the project is on hold due to health reasons and I am unsure when and if it will start again

1=12 was also on the list
when you take all the permutations of model types and scales it is quite task with very little, if any, reward
To progress further I have to purchase from the RNLI a full set of plans for each boat type.
I did ask on this website could anybody lend me some but I got no answers.


Carl
Yes got the file
be in touch later this month

as you seem to be building a Trent model do you have a set of plans I can borrow
I will pay all costs
This might help you get a set of windows sooner than later

Lifeboat windows

Due to ill health I have not been able to finalise the CAD work for all the various scales and types of lifeboat window kits
I am aiming to return to the work in early January
Some kind members have offered me some plans to work from
I am hoping to have the plans before the new year
The design of the Tyne class has been completed in 1=12 & 1=16 scale
The design consists of the various parts to make a window assy
They feature raised rivet heads for appearance effect
Further info will be posted on this site
