This kit has 189 parts and is 236mm in Length with a beam of 76mm. The decals allow you to make any of the current Operational RNLI Severn lifeboats in service.
The RNLI is a voluntary organisation, supported only by public subscription and donations and dedicated to assisting mariners in difficulty around the British coastline. The lifeboat and station is a feature of many coastal towns. As a larger boat, the Severn is usually to be found at more major stations, and is sturdy and stable at sea with self righting characteristics. It is usually able to protect its crew in the worst of storms!
Introduced to the RNLI in 1995, the all-weather Severn Class Lifeboat is the largest in the fleet. It has a range of 250 nautical miles, a top speed of 25 knots and carries a powered Y Boat that can be launched and recovered by lightweight crane, enabling rescues close inshore. Its propellers are protected so it can take the ground without damage. Learn more about the RNLI at their own web site.
