    Lesro had the whole range of the old Aerokits plans in 2009 - not sure about the 2 Lifeboats. Try contacting them - Les Rowell designed most of the Aerokits models, later left to set up his own company - hence Lesro . The lifeboats may have been produced after he left Aerokits.

    Thanks but no.

    Solent is 1/12 scale and has not been made for a long long time. Also Aerokits went out of business, I believe, in the 1970's.

    Hi,
    I don't know if this helps.

    A silly question but have you contacted the manufacturer of the kit to see if they can supply you with some drawings?

    Martin.

    Thanks but only 10 days ago I spoke to RNLI who tell me that they no longer supply any lifeboat plans and have not done so for some time.

    Hi,
    I have found this on the net.

    Send an email to the engineering secretary at the RNLI as they sell a set for the Solent (three sheets @ approx Β£6 a sheet including postage.


    mailto:louise_chapman@rnli.org.uk


    Louise is always ready and willing to help modelers in any way she can.
    The RNLI needs all the help and funds it can get to continue its great work at sea.

    Hope this helps.

    Martin.

    HELP
    Does anyone out there have the plans and build guidance for above lifeboat, please?
    I have recently acquired one in considerable need of a good dose of T L C.
    Naturally I am happy to pay for an original set or for the cost of copying etc
