    This was supposed to be a full and true restoration according to the blurb given on our trip, I thought at the time it looked a bit too blingy. But wow what a great trip, and a tribute to the people who served in her and the lives it saved.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Absolutely Martin, πŸ‘ As I did with my Sea Scout above, with 3mm tinted perspex.
    There are such wonderful crystal clear acrylate plastics available these days in various thicknesses from 0.5mm up, and scratch resistant, it's dead easy to make super windows.
    Takes a bit more time and effort that's all. Just use the frame 'oles as a template to mark up the window 'glass'.
    If 'time is of the essence' (as the lawyers say) then just buy an ARTR or RTR in the first place.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Yes, 102 is a different boat altogether. Nice prize though, Colin.

    I had a ride on it 2 years ago, 102 was the number on the boat. I think it might have been an HSL. Sorry for the confusion but it was advertised on TV as a fire boat rescue launch. I won the ride with a local radio station phone in quiz while on holiday in Somerset.
    Cheers Colin.

    Really, chaps, make them! it's piss easy. Come on, why should everything be available off the shelf for you? A sheet of 60 thou. Plastikard, a piercing saw (which, as modelmakers you should have anyway) and a few evenings or a weekend of free time. Get the frame how you like it and then scribe round the inside onto a piece of thin Perspex and cut that with the same piercing saw, cleaning up with Swiss files. The cheap Lidl's diamond dust ones are very good for plastics as they don't tend to leave cut marks.

    Colin, are you sure there's a crash tender restored? As there were only 2 built I find that very unlikely.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    Forgot to rotate before posting, it's a picture of the one that was fully restored, now available to hire somewhere on the South Coast.
    Cheers Colin.
