Tyne Class Lifeboat
« on: November 17, 2008, 11:06:00 AM »

Hi
  A mate of mine is restoring a 1/12th scale Tyne class lifeboat.He is having trouble identifying the correct anchor type.Can anyone tell me the type required and who may be able to supply it.I too have a query.I am building a tug based on Slipway's Al Khubar and I intend to show its port of registration as England(Grimsby).I would like to know what flag such a vessel would fly,if any?

 :embarrassed:Hope that doesnt make me sound to dim and thank you in anticipation of your answer.Thanks for taking a look.

Regards Andy (Balders) :-))

The one MCAT shows is called a Fishermans anchor and is on the Port side as he shows (Model Slipway sell a 1/12th scale one including the fitting) the other type is called a Delta Plough (pictures 1 and 2) and sits on the foredeck in its fittting (Don't think anybody sells them at 1/12th scale!!). I made my own (pictures 3 and 4) 8)!!
