Hi Ed. What a fantastic hull and superstructure. You dont need plans for this! Use your imagination !!! Look at loads of pictures, see what grabs your fancy and build it. PS. Stick a massive motor in it and have some fun     Ashley

 or is this too non-pc for model boats ??

Ashley . Thanks this was what I have been doing. I estimate that the scale is 1:20 / 1:25 do you know?

I will post some pics who ever had the model before me did not have much of a clue I have had to strip of layers of paint and varnish taking hours.

This is my first boat model,  was a aeromodeller a long time ago, now I am near retiring I took this on as a first attempt, I have brought a big motor as advised by a fellow enthusiast .

Thanks for you reply hope to here form anyone who can varify the boat type and scale.

Ed, how about, as one method, cutting out some cardboard persons at known scales and blu-tacking them on the boat at different places and seeing what looks about right ???  1:32=54mm  etc etc . Ashley

HI Ed,

Model looks great, with regards to the engine, what you need to ask yourself is where are you going to sail her ?.  If you are intending to sail on model boating / park lakes, be aware that almost all councils and quite a few clubs have banned the use of I.C. engines because of noise and pollution.  You may be lucky and find a club near to you that has IC days, failing that your only other option is offshore or the use of a private lake.  Except for the racing guys most modellers have moved over to electric. 

Cheers - Ken

This model  was called a “Hanson” I think, and I believe it was sold by Ripmax, my father purchased one for me about 23 Years ago, I don’t think anyone will still be selling the kit now! shame if it was still for sale I would buy one as I remember it was a great kit.

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.
