Hi All.
I'm looking for some detailed drawings or pictures of the type of Kent windscreen used on the RAF Crash Tenders.
Do any of you chaps have anything of the like or can offer some advice on the making of?.

Hi Dave.
Thanks for the link, it's useful to see the mechanics of the Kent clearscreen, I have found some other old b/w photos online that look similar to the ones on the fireboats so I probably have enough to go on now.

Modelling Timbers does one as a kit of parts. All their stuff is superb.

Thanks Martin, I had already seen the Kent screens on Keith's site but the largest he does is only 10mm which is too small for my 1/12 scale model so I ended up scratch building one.
I'll be posting a blog update on that shortly.
