BROCKLEBANK
« on: January 06, 2007, 10:40:20 PM »

Does anyone know of hulls available that could be used to make a model of BROCKLEBANK, preserved in Liverpool.  1:32 if possible.
MMM's Canning looks similar(?)
Thanks

Well as no one seemed to know, I've bitten the bullet and bought a Canning from MMM.
Looking at my pictures of the real thing it's not too different. The Canning hull is riveted whereas the Brocklebank is welded.
I don't think I'll start removing all the rivets off my hull.
Waiting now to see if Mersey Maritine Museum can supply a plan of Brocklebank.

Is the  Brockelbank the liverpool pilot boat ?
If so I have a full set of plans 3 sheets by Harold H Underhill the size of the model is 43 Inches length, 71/2 inch beam and 1/4 inch to the foot.

The plans are new I only used the lines plan and are in good condition
If they are what you are looking for,  if the price of postage and packing is OK you can have them.

Thanks for the offer but The Pilot boat is the "Edmund Gardner".
The Mersey maritime museum has no plans so I emailed the National Maritime Museum to see if they can help.

I now realise that it is the tug boat you are modelling my mix up.

Actually the plans I have are for the Liverpool Pilot No 1 Sir Thomas Brocklebank , the ship is now scrapped.
All the best with your model.

                 ...Hi Frank...
A wee suggestion that might help you in your search for plans...
If you find out where the "BROCKLEBANK" was last dry-docked, The shipyard should have a set of plans for setting up the blocks in the dry-dock bottom for the boat to sit on.
There are also several plans services who have loads of plans for sale, mostly of older type vessels...
Anyway Frank, Good luck with your build & dont forget to post regular updates of progress...
