Airfix 1/72 RNLI Severn Class Lifeboat
Posted by kpnuts on Sunday, September 03, 2017 11:50 AM
Hi all I decided to give this one a go, it's actually a very nice kit and at 12.99 cheap.
Here's the box instruction booklet and my start on it.
I intend to put it on a base in a very rough sea.

Now See !

 There is an alternative to warships . I love doing these . I also have Airfix's old black hulled P.T. boat type rescue boat . I think they are great and Revell O G." Hermann Marwede" as well .

I like that a lot. I think the water is fine. 17-24 is based in Aberdeen and thats some pretty rough water up there.

Those types of ships go out in some really rough seas. That looks like a good start.

Hi all here's the next update, I've heard lots of people say this is a bad fitting kit but I have to say it seems spot on to me (so far anyway) just a trial fit of the top cabin nothing fixed yet I'm toying with the idea of making it removable to show the detailed interior.

I've got to say for pocket money prices this is a really detailed kit I'm really enjoying it, I must have the one good fitting kit airfix made of it because I've got to say so far it's been a perfect fit no problems at all I wonder if there is a bigger than 1/72 model of this kit.
