The Billings Waveney Class Lifeboat ship model kit accurately recreates the real life vessel built at the Coast Guard shipyard in Curtis Bay, Maryland, USA. When complete, the model measures 36.3cm long, 23.6cm high and 10.7cm wide.

After minor adjustments the vessel is now doing duty in British coastal waters for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (better known as the RNLI). This former 44-foot Coast Guard is a very seaworthy lifeboat, designed to carry out search and rescue assignments in poor weather and water conditions. With a skilled and experienced crew, this vessel can carry out the most demanding of rescue operations.

The Billing Boats kit of the Waveney Class Lifeboat features an ABS hull and superstructure with plastic fittings, mast in ramin wood and rigging cord. This kit is ideal for the beginner to boat modelling. As it comes, it is designed for static display but can with some work be converted to radio control.

    The finished product looks good but as the kit is for beginners a little more instruction could be given and some help in converting the model for radio control. The parts in the plastic bag are tiny and could be better identified by a small sketch of some of them . Part 850/0 is not identified on the drawings but supports the radar scanner I hope!
