Hi, many years ago I purchased many models from plastic cars, planes and ships to some wooden ship models to absorb many hours of leisure time. Its only been recent (retired) that I finally had the time to really get into it and I love it. Made many plastic models but now want to get into wooden ships that I had. One is the Artesania Courageux ii which I guess could be classified as entrance level suitable for me but when I opened the package (new when purchased), it is missing some instructions so am hoping there is someone here who maybe able to help me. There are sheets of photo's but my kit only includes photos 9 to 25 so I am missing photos 1 to 8. Also there is a poor photo copy instruction sheet titled "19003 Fulgaro" which appears to be wrong as the name on the box is Courageux ii 19006. I am not sure though so hoping anyone can advise me. I did contact Artesania Latina via their web-site who advised that they could not assist me. Apologies for long message.

Hi George and welcome to the forum.

A quick Google search suggests that the kit is still available :-

scalemates.com

oldmodelkits.com

worthpoint.com, etc.

They may be able to help with a photocopy or two ?

You've also posted here in the "Beginners Section" of the forum, so you could try broadening the search to other areas where folk may still have the original box /instructions 'on the shelf'.

Good hunting !

Dave

I have a kit somewhere - will have a look and check what instructions that has . Artesania tended to put some instruction photos on the outside of the box at that time - presume you checked that.

If need be I can scan & send you copies via Email later .

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
