There was a very detailed article about building one of these in the July and August 2011 editions of Model Boats magazine. You should be able to obtain back-issues.

I have a pretty good book in pdf format on the Alvis 6 wheelers with a pretty good section on the Stalwart.  If you PM me I could send it to you.  It's a little big (about 42 Mb) but it should e-mail.

I hope these will be ok for you . You can scale them up or down to suit whatever size you want to build it .

making that as a 1/24th is going to be a challenge to fit everything inside , even at 1/12th it could be a squeeze , but at least youd be able to get axles from the tamiya truck boys ! good luck , nice to see somebody making something different

If you look at Gloucester and district model boat club you will see a fantastic fully working (including jib) model, it is really a very well built complex model and very effective in motion.
