  1. Playing with SRN4 Hovercrafts doing such things as making the Airfix 1/144 Princess Margaret to look like it was when I flew in it in 1999 (see my other build in this group) and buying a set of seats from the now scrapped hovercraft I thought I'd go a bit further. On ebay a chap was selling the "Six inch" snaptite kit which was released by Kelloggs and could be purchased if you saved enough cereal box tops. My brother and I had the hydrofoil and the oil rig, but I didn't know they did an SRN4 !! So here it is. I will be doing this also as the Princess Margaret but when it was operated by Seaspeed in their white and blue livery. As you can see it is quite basic but I'm sure with a lick of paint it will be quite presentable
  2. Finally got around to starting. For this build I have chosen my Airfix SRN4 kit that I bought shortly after 1973. It has been with me ever since, moving from house to house and even to Canada and back. As a result the box got battered and it lost a few parts. Getting on for 20 years ago I bought another kit as it was re-release. I am using both kits for this build as some of the early parts, such as the main base and the hanger floor are warped and 'if I was going there I wouldn't start here ! When they were going to discontinue use of these hovering behemoths I took a flight on one, just to Calais and back. Mobile phones had come in, but I hated them. However, I borrowed a phone just so my first call was "Hello Mum, I am on the hovercraft". I saw this same machine, Princess Margaret, a few months later looking very sorry for itself - now just a museum piece. My original box, released 1973 below and above it the 2002 release. This fuzzy picture illustrates the warping of the hanger deck Not all the old stuff is bad. The 1973 roof is the clear one on the left whereas the 2002 one has already yellowed. I will be choosing the clear roof option. And here you see the start of my build. 'Eee lad, for forty seven years I have dreamed of painting the hanger deck floor that particular brick red'
  3. Hello all, I am trying to find detailed plans or schematic, with dimensions, of these iconic hovercraft. I have checked Wikipedia and the Hovercraft Museums sites and have worked out the full lengths and widths, but could do with details on the cabin, fins, propeller, skirt etc., etc. I would be grateful for any help with these. cheers, Mike
  4. Griffon 2000TDX Landing Craft Air Cushion (Hovercraft) as used by The Royal Marines, pics thanks to Ruari.
  5. Does anyone have any definitive plans for the SRN5 or SRN6 Hovercraft? I am aware of a set of plans for building a RC model, but wondered if there were any other plans available. Thanks Peter
