Hi there, I wonder if anyone out there has a copy of Vic Smeeds 'Simple model yacht' booklet. I am about to start on the Starlet Yacht and understand this booklet has building notes in it. Any help gratefully received, thanks.

I have the booklet 'Simple Model Yachts' in archive. I could scan and email the pages on the Starlet build, total 19 pages. If this is of any value, please send your email in a personal message.

Much of the building, i.e. method of construction etc. would still be relevant, but the finishing materials, adhesives and r/c fit-out wouldn't be relevant today. The sails are still listed in the Nylet range.

Tony, could I be really cheeky and ask for a massive favour if still possible please. I realise it's an old post.

I've just received the plans and am awaiting the wood kit from Belair for the Starlet. I've had a search around for "simple model yachts" but it's obviously entered the realm of Rocking horse do do! As Brian says above, any help would be greatly received.

Hi David,

If you need a copy, I can scan you a copy if you send me your email in a personal message.

There is currently one for sale on ebay which needs renovation.

Might be worth looking at?

Thanks Brian, message sent.

I did have a look around eBay, there's a few for sale that look similar, and a lovely looking fully built one, I do like the classic looks.

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.
