A traditional, wooden, quick-build lifeboat kit that’s ideal for beginners and newcomers to R/C model boating.
Modelled on the E-Class boat, which was designed specifically for operation on London’s bustling River Thames, this eye-catching model beautifully captures the spirit of the type. Combining both speed and manoeuvrability to cover the tidal reaches of the river, the E-Class was introduced in response to the recommendations of the 1989 Marchioness disaster enquiry.
The Wooden Model Boat Company prides itself on producing traditional model boat kits that build quickly and accurately into delightful semi-scale replicas, each as happy cruising on the lake as it is adorning the mantelpiece at home. Using precise laser-cut balsa and ply parts, coupled with a semi self-jigging / interlocking hull frame and easy to follow step-by-step instructions, success is practically guaranteed. Whether you plan to build this police boat for two-channel radio control or static display the process is very similar, as are the rewards.
