Many Lifeboat Enthusiast members have a passion and talent for building (and sailing) scale models of lifeboats both current and historic either scratch built from plans or from commercial kits. This is a vibrant and thriving area of interest within Lifeboat Enthusiasts, there is much expertise and relevant contacts available to help with all aspects of model lifeboat building.
*Currently the RNLI is redesigning it’s online shop facility which includes the supply of lifeboat plans, this facility will be unavailable until early 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. Some RNLI Lifeboat Plans are available (at a cost) from the archives of The Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London, SE10 9NF.
