With my model of the Mary Stantord almost finished I made a start on my next project - the Robert Lindsay from Arbroath.
The hull is from orion mouldings and the bumprails have been added - they are made of balsa and a bit simplified,  but I'm fine with that.

As my first model of a liverpool lifeboat was a quite slow I decided to use stronger motors and brass props ( 35 mm diameter and 30 mm pitch). After adding the first coats of paint I could head of to the lake for the first sea trials.

The powerful motors and brass props pay of - the boat achieves a decent speed  Smile

hello Neil, I too do love Liverpools. They're absolutely absolutely beautiful classic lifeboats. Your model is a real beauty  Thumbup
After selling my first Liverpool I initially wanted to build the Solomon Browne. But since I couldn't get hold of any drawings of a 47 ft Watson I decided to build a new Liverpool instead.

The forward bulkhead and the deck supports have been glued into the hull. Today I took her to the lake for another trial. She may be not as manueverable as my model of the Mary Stanford or the Konsul John (a classic german motor lifeboat), but she is way more powerful.

Hello Neil, thank you very much

I like sailing the lifeboats when the water gets a little rough. For fine weather I've got my civil war boats.

thanks Neil   Smile

Dave, the hull is from orion mouldings and the shelter is self made. I built a plug out of plywood and obeche and then laminated the shelter with a few layers of fibreglass. It's a bit on the heavy side but also very sturdy.

The deck has been planked with abachi and the insides of the bulwarks with mahogany. Next step ist to add styrene strips to the deck and to build the flotation boxes

Time for another round on the lake. Perhaps I should have added scuppers, after 20 minutes of sailing there was quite a bit of water on deck.

Thank you very much, Neil  Very Happy
Well, it took a lot of trial and error until achieved the knowledge and confidence to sail in choppy waters. One of my first lifeboats (the german "Lübeck") almost capsized.
