    This blog details the refurbishment of a 1/12th scale Tyne class lifeboat that depicts the original boat as was named in a ceremony by Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Kent on Friday 28th July at 2.00 pm 1989 at Scotch Head Whitby. The boat was built originally by a friend of a club member a good few years ago, and was in need of a complete restoration. On purchasing the boat it still looked the part with no particular damage so the basics were good I felt it just needed repaint and new fittings. The original build was not from a kit, but a bare hull and deck and everything else either scratch built or from commercially available stock. The mechanics worked very smoothly once I had paired a new receiver to my transmitter as did all the lighting and radar. Even though I feel it was now well used and very 90s ish technology. So thatโ€™s the intro here are the first photos I had from mid 2023, the boat was then shelved until Feb 2024 when I was ready to tackle her.
