    hi there definitely not a Percasa hull its definitely a Fairmile C hull or B come to that. I believe the hull may come from Kingston Mouldings one of Robin Whitmarsh's creations. - I am going to have to correct myself here. I have consulted the Coastal Forces book by John Lambert and Al Ross - the go-to book when you need to know anything about Coastal Forces vessels and when I go to the plans in the book for a Fairmile C - the bridge does have a 'hut roof' shape. But, having said that its not as pronounced as the 'hut roof' (bridge roof) in this model. By the way, 325 was built on 9.9.1941 and went for disposal in 1946 and was built by Frank Curtis Ltd, Looe, Cornwall. I will try & put some drawings on from the book if it will help you - unless you can obtain the book yourself :-) Keep on with this brilliant build.
    PS
    It may be one of Christians hulls at 1/24 scale

    Not sure if it is a perkasa as the bow seems a different shape from the photos I’ve seen on the net,also It did come with 2 pictures one of which is of a mgb 325 which after a google search comes up with it being a fairmile c,which looks the same as the model ,The hull is constructed from fibreglass as is the deck,but doesn’t look homemade,maybe preformed when brought from a supplier.The cabin is ply but again looks precut.
    I’ve decided to make the rear gun move by adding a servo and y lead from the rudder servo but it’s not a very smooth movement yet so more work there to do

    hi there
    Are you referring to the hull in the very beginning of this thread as being a Perkasa kit? or, based on a Perkasa kit - I think that this comes from either a plan by Vic Smeed - or by the late Mr John Lambert - I think there is a little freelance work in this as far as the bridge goes - but - having said that the Fairmile C's like the majority of Fairmiles were heavily modified to suit the purpose and need of the day. So, the shed roof shape of the bridge may be right. Havent come across any photographs of a bridge roof this shape but that doesn't mean it didn't exist - I am following this build - I wouldn't mind building a Fairmile C myself in the future. Keep on with your good work - I am following with interest. Please post loads of pics of the inside and outside and all the work you do.

    Hi
    I'm looking at building one of these as a future project. Do you know if this was from a kit or scratch built?
    Thanks
    Steve

    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure?
