Have recently aquired what I think is 'Yeoman Minx'   20'' length - 7'' beam.  I have seen old ads. giving the pre-decimal price as 22/6  (£1-12) but no date. Any imformation / drawings / plans / building instructions etc . would be greatly appreciated.

There is an organisation called "THE RETRO RACING CAR COMPANY" or something simular. The chap that runs it has loads of old vintage boat plans and has helped me out in the past with Aerokit plans. As I am in the middle of trying to move and I cannot lay my hands on their contact details, maybe some else knows them??

Thanks to Graham Leeper for supplying me with a copy of the original 'drawings' from the kit he found in Canada, and tracings of all the parts. This design is by Eric Marx - does anyone know if he is responsible for any, or all of the others in the Yeoman range ??.

Hi

I am rebuilding my Yeoman Minx with modern electric power. I obtained the model as a kit around 1958 and used it for about 6 years, till it was 'laid up' for nigh on 50 years.

Best Regards

Frank

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
