    Can anyone confirm the identity of the hull I purchased at Bourneville in September?
    Its 45" long, 5" beam and 4.5" deck to keel and is hopefully one of my winter projects.

    I thought initially that it was a type IX boat but am not fully sure.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It is not that far from a type IX for stand-off scale.

    It may be a bit beamier than scale but that makes the build easier (and easier to fit in the car.)

    It's a very semi scale Type 1X, and moulded by Deans Marine, one of the Mouldeans range. I've got one up in my attic somewhere.

    Thank You both for the ID Confirmation of the Type IX hull

    The more that I look at it , the more semi scale it appears when compared with the pictures
    that I have.

    Now to find the missing details....


    Regards

    John
