Morning All I’m just about to start building a 1/12 Tyne class model that the wife got me for a birthday. The hull is from models by design but is now owned by mount fleet models I wanted to go brushless motors this time around and have never used them before. Already had some help on that subject from you guys around the ESC and wire cutting. I’m going to build this model on the tyne that was base at shoreham before it got the Tamar class. Will keep you all posted on the progress
In 1990 Shoreham life boat station was supplied with a new Tyne-class lifeboat. She was the RNLB Hermione Lady Colwyn (ON 1158). The Hermione Lady Colwyn was on station from 1990 until 2010 and during that period she was launched to service 414 times and she rescued 458 people. 72 of these were classed as medical emergency but she is credited with saving the lives of 39 people. After the withdrawal of Hermione Lady Colwyn in April 2010, the station was served by various relief fleet Tynes until the new Tamar-class entered service in December 2016
