Here goes,.....here  is my first offering, an Airfix 1/72 Severn Class lifeboat.  


I chose to do the Humber lifeboat as I didn’t want to show favouritism to any one of my local Cornish boats, plus I grew up in a town on the banks of the Humber.  


I didn’t have most of the problems usually reported of this kit.  Airfix have updated their instructions to not mention the infamous missing part 30 though the pictures do show it in place so I contacted them and they did send me the required second one.  I have got the anti fouling and boot stripe in the wrong place, I should have checked my reference pictures more closely.

Excellent work on this one!


I am glad you mentioned about 'Part 30', as I thought I was going doo-lally as I could only fine one! I had not read anything in any reviews I have seen about that issue. I scratch-built a replacement. It is a really colourful model.


All the best,

Hello Ginger,

Job well done. I did this one some years ago. Not that easy to put together.

But, very colorful and beautifully lined.
