For my next project I am looking at building a Shannon class lifeboat. I have found much discussion on another site about the development of such a model earlier this year by Speedline models.
However, this seems to have petered out and I can find no such mention on their website or anywhere else on the web.
Any knowledge anyone?

Steve

Hi Steve, the Shannon is in production as we speak, it was on show at the Ellesmeer Port show and is supposed to be available from about august, but the pre-orders will be dealt with first

Thanks Mark. I still have quite a bit to do on my current project, the Aeronaut pilot boat, so a couple of months won't be a problem.
Is it Speedline Models?

Models By Design are also selling a part kit of the Shannon. I have one and intend to build mine based on the Hoylake lifeboat as this is near to my location.
The German supplier of the jet drive is on holiday until mid September so I can't start just yet.


Live long and prosper

Speedline are doing both a 1/16th and a 1/12th scale "Shannon". The development process is quite close to being finished and the first kits should be available in October for those who have pre-ordered. As Jarvo has said a very close to completion model was on show at Haydock Park and as usual from Speedline it is a work of art, the kit includes jet drives and motors developed by Adrian specifically for this kit. You can see quite a bit of information at: http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,51458... (you need to be a member to view the pictures)

The kit won't be cheap and leans a little more to ARTR than previous Speedline offerings. Looking forward to mine!!

Thanks for the info Shaun.
It's a little out of my price range I'm afraid but best of luck with yours!
