Hey all, I'm new here.

I'm just finishing off a 36" Aerokits RAF Crash Tender that was started in 1962 a couple of generations ago in my family. Keeping it a basic build to the kit for now.

While researching stuff I came across HSL 102 and am keen to build a model? Does anyone have leads on getting plans? I have found an information brochure with basic deck plan outline and a long section (no offsets) and also no cross sections at bulkheads... I'm guessing any 100 class info would be useful.

Prefer to build out of wood, less interested in plastic.

Have scratch built before as a school project in 1990's, jet sprint boat.

Hi SimonK
Welcome to the site.
I have plans for many of the coastal craft used in the war. The British Power Boat HSL102 was the first design used and is now held by They may be able to help. Certainly many pics on the site.
The later version were known as whalebacks and I have plans for HSL141.
I would suggest a visit to see the restored vessel but as you are based in Australia that may not be possible.
Good hunting

Live long and prosper
