Thread: Self Steering Mystery
23/07/2021 09:34:11

Once again thank you to the brains trust! What a fantastic resource to someone like me, loads of enthusiasm but little knowledge. I am located in Australia and have found it difficult to connect with the right people who share a similar passion. I look at the diagram posted by Gareth and it fits exactly with the model that I have! A photo to follow when I can get to it. Cheers smiley yes

Thank you all for considering my conundrum! I think Richard you are on to it. I image it is only a simple set up, the hull of the model is only 36cm long. I'll try riving it up as you suggest and see how it goes.


I don't know if it was a Star model, as it has the builders name Reg

stamped into the underside of the lead weight.

Lola is my granddaughter not quite one, I have a bit of time to sort it out before we go to the pond together.

Thanks Richard for your reply. The photo that you posted is an awesome looking craft, a very sophisticated steering looking set-up!

First time on forum, apologies in advance!


Can anyone tell me how to hook up this mechanism, the model came to me in pieces? There may even be some crucial parts missing?



Many thanks for any help you can offer!

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
