Hi John,

  Try typing 'vosper' into ebay and see if it is the same as anything that comes up!

 Welcome aboard!

Hello again.

               Thanks for everyones help i have managed to identify the boat as a vosper raf crash tender.I have found some of these model kits on ebay made by victory toys but these are plastic kits and mine is a wooden model.As this boat is half made and really well made i need to try and find the wooden model plans for this boat and i wonder if anyone can help where i might get them from.The boat is 36 inches long by about 11 inches wide at the widest point.

Hope someone can help Thankyou.

Hi John,

the model you have is one of the AEROKITS RAF CRASH TENDERS. They did two sizes one at 36" and one at 48".  The actual boats were No93 and94 built by Vospers in 1952/53 for the RAF Marine Branch. Classed as 46ft.Fire Boat Mk.2, stores Ref. 16F/154.  Powered by twin Rover Meteorite MK.203  petrol engines of 375HP at 2,400 RPM. Top speed was 28.5 knots., cruising speed 25.5 knots, 270 gallons of fuel gave a range of 155 miles. They operated with the RAF as experimental craft at Calshot and Felixstowe and were designed as a replacement for the ageing WW2 craft. Both were put on the disposals list in 1958 - their lives ended with the demise of Flying boats and the standardisation of Rolls Royce power plants in all new builds.  Any thing else you want to know about the just ask.

FAIR WINDS AND A FAVOURABLE TIDE
Donald
