A quick 30 second look with my pal Google yielded:-
Greenwich maritime museum have the plans and sell copies of every RNLI boat
Enjoy!

Hi Phil
Join the Lifeboats Enthusiasts socy or visit their stand at most large model shows. They have an extensive collection of photos of all lifeboat types. There are different types of Arun so I suggest you Google to make sure you build the correct cabin for your hull.
There are also dedicated web sites for Lifeboats and Mayhem also have some good build blogs

Hello, Try Arun 52..As far as i can recall there were only the 52 Footers.. I may be wrong ! Or as someone has mentioned The Enthusiasts Society of the RNLI, they very helpfull. The Main Man used be a chap named Mr .... Clutterbuck..
Good hunting Muddy.

Hi pipstream and muddy
The first two Aruns were 52' but the next 5 were 54' but the rounded transom proved to be un-seawothy so later versions were all 52'.
There is a very useful book RNLI Motor Lifeboats by Nicholas Leach that gives detail of the Aruns with pics as well as many more.
Cheers
Dave

There certainly were 2 types of Arun,and these where very much different.Some where made of wood and the later ones of glass fibre composite.There were 52 footers and 54 footers.The sterns on some were very fifferent to others.Adrian Clutterbuck as already suggested is a good man to contact and by joining the Lifeboat Enthusiasts Society, you will gain a whole load of information.I think you will find that the superstructure supplied with most models,is for a 54 foot version.
Hope this helps
