    Have a look for the Dec 1980 issue of Model Boats - there is a very in depth build feature of a Rother class - but not of the David Metcalfe version you are looking at. If you cant find will scan the pages for you later. Send me a PM if you cant find one on the mag site or eBay. Unfortunately not a build I have scanned before.

    Hi Cargoman,
    I might be wrong but I think ChrisG made one about 2 years ago.
    Might be worth sending him a PM.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Its the old David Metcalf kit they bought the rights to - should think they have stuck to the original design so it should be a good one Cargo. Not sure if there was ever a review of this particular kit - will have a scratch through my files.

    Thinking on the lines of building the Rother Lifeboat Alice Upjohn from Tony Green steam models, has anyone built the kit and any comments would be great thanks.
