British Power Boat`s 63 ft. high speed Air-Sea Rescue Launch, from 1942, was known as the "Whaleback" from the distinctive curve to its deck. The Type 2 HSL (High Speed Launch) was used to rescue Allied aircrew from the sea after they were shot down during the Second World War.
In the Second World War, the retrieval of pilots and aircrew shot down over the sea around the British Isles was the responsibility of the Royal Air Force Air Sea Rescue Service, (motto: "The Sea Shall Not Have Them") operating launches and aircraft in cooperation with the Royal Navy.
The Type Two was designed in 1937 by Hubert Scott-Paine, founder of the British Power Boat Company at Hythe. Scott-Paine had worked previously for the Supermarine Aviation Company, builders of the Supermarine Spitfire and, more importantly, several flyingboat types.
A lowset cabin contained the wheel-house, chart room and a sickbay. For defence against enemy aircraft, on top of the cabin were two aircraft-style turrets made by Armstrong-Whitworth each with a single .303 in Vickers machine gun.
The Type Two was supplied to RAF Marine Craft Units from the middle of 1940. Around seventy "Whalebacks" were built for the RAF between 1940 and 1942. They were used throughout the war.
The model is rigged for animation, and the product features four detailed resolutions of the model.
This model is a 3DMax model, saved in version 8 as a MAX file, and requires 3DMax. It does not include any other formats to allow it to be opened in any other software. The model is rigged where appropriate.
