    I think if you do some checking PeeWit83, you will find that the HA kit is is of the Flying Christine II not I, just finishing one off for myself, but in the correct livery, will post on the site when completed.

    Cheers, Pete๐Ÿ˜Š

    Nice Model, I hope you enjoyed the build.
    The first Flying Christine was a converted air sea rescue launch, unfortunately it was destroyed in a storm. The Flying Christine II was the commissioned to replace it. In the 90s she was replaced by The Flying Christine III, which looks like a pilot boat design.

    A friend of mine has done a little research into the Flying Christine and believes that it would be possible to build all three variants of this well known craft from this one kit.
    With some minor modifications this should be reasonably easy to achieve and would make an impressive trio.

    I saw the original Flying Christine back in the very early 1960's during a fortnights (Junior) school visit to the island.
    The original craft was painted in black and white only and proudly displayed the St Johns Ambulance logo on its hull sides.
    I think the current Flying Christine is the third (similar sized) craft to bear the name.

    I was lucky to see the original Flying Christine in Guernsey when it was first crewed by local hero Dan Blanchflower who used the craft to save several lives that would have been lost before St Johns Ambulance were able to commission her as a floating ambulance service.
