AIRFIX TO OFFER AFTERMARKET DECALS FOR SHANNON-CLASS LIFEBOAT

Modellers building Airfix’s 1/72 Shannon-Class Lifeboat will be able to replicate any example in the RNLI fleet, thanks to the firm’s new aftermarket decals.

Airfix’s all-new 1/72 Shannon-Class Lifeboat kit is flying off the shelves, but it offers markings for just one vessel, RNLB 13-01 Jock and Annie Slater. However, in a welcome move by Airfix, the company is set to offer its own separate, aftermarket decal sheet carrying boat numbers and names for all 50 craft in the Royal National Lifeboat Institution fleet. The initial vessel 13-01 is included, and other examples are 13-06 Edmund Hawthorn, 13-16 Elizabeth and Leonard, and 13-43 St Christopher.

Provision of this useful Cartograf-printed decal sheet (A65005) means you can now replicate a Shannon-Class lifeboat stationed locally to you, if desired. It will cost £9.99 direct from Airfix (you can pre-order it now) and its official stockists – and will include a full list of lifeboat numbers, names and their stations.
