Airfix 1/72 Severn Lifeboat?

This is listed as a future release on the Hannants website, joining the
TSR and another version of the Concorde as new Airfix offerings in
1/72. I assume the Concorde is the same kit as released earlier except
with Air France markings.

Going with Italeri - does that mean a half decent Jaguar kit, with the colourful Airfix markings?

Well a rep said they were distching the heller side and going in with Italeri, hope so as try to avoid buying things made by frogs. The person who told me was a revell rep.

What is a "Severn Lifeboat" and what are the kit details?

The Severn is a class of rescue boat used by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution around the coastlines of the British Isles. The type is just one of many in their large fleet, some being solely for inshore work and others for far out at sea. Based at numerous small harbours and on the Thames, crewed by volunteers and funded solely by public donations (deliberately they take nothing from the government) the RNLI will go out and rescue those in peril at sea.

A Google Image search for 'RNLI Severn lifeboat' will give you dozens more images of these lifesaving vessels.
Airfix plan to release this kit in September at about £15 on its own and £25 with the Sea King rescue helo.

Besides being a RNLI craft it's a great looking boat with a dazzling paint scheme.
