1/12th Scale Trent Lifeboat

The Trent  was the first ‘kit’ we produced some 11 years ago now I think? It builds into a ‘Museum standard’ model that you will be proud of.  

It is not a 100% complete kit, requiring the builder to source some small parts or make them from scratch from tubing or styrene sheet.  Nothing complicated or expensive so have no fear.  

It is available in individual ‘sets’ which can be bought all together or separately.  This means you can spread the cost of the kit or use whatever ‘sets’ you wish and make as much as you like from scratch.  Plans need to be sourced from the RNLI in Poole (just call them, they are all geared up for the modeller wanting plans).

The model has an overall length of  48” and weighs about 26lbs.

I recommend some brushless ‘outrunners for motors.  Massive choice available and they are very low cost too.

The kit comprises of a number of 'sets', each of which can be bought separately. The 'sets' making up the full kit are as follows:  


  Hull and Wheelhouse   £240.00
Detail £275.00
Handrails, Stanchions & Kicking Board £45.00
Running £65.00
