Hi Trucker
Thanks for your interest in the build.

I am still building although family and work have slowed me down the last couple of weeks. I have almost finished the raised deck although progress has been slow as my brass tube bending and soldering isn't the best. Will post some pictures later today.

Beyno1968:
Yes it is the Tyne I'm building, like yourself this is my first complete scratch build ( although I have refurbished a billings 1/20 scale 44ft US coast guard cutter and turned it into an RNLI Waveney) so I to have had to remake things I'm not happy with. I will upload latest pictures shortly

Trucker:
had to remove the spray rail on my tyne class lifeboat today, reason for that is simply because i didnt like how i put it on and just didnt look right, so, can any of you tyne builders help me out by explaining how you made, attached there spray rail to the hull, and the thickness of the sheet used to make their spray rail
