Does anybody know what is the content of a plan listed in MB plan list? What is he scale, number/size of plan sheets? IS it worth GBP 9,95?

Hi Zdenek,
I have recently purchased the Spray plan. The drawing is 5/8 scale 1:19.2
It is in one sheet. Details are shown for both the Sloop Rig and the Yawl Rig (at 1/4 model size. The plan is in need of darkening some lines (probably as the original is faded). The plan offers a false lead keel for a sailing model.
It is my intention to commence this model after the current project is finished.
Overall verdict - not over detailed and typical of Vic Smeeds plans. Certainly worth the money.

Hi Tony,
Many thanks for your information. I was just wondering whether it is much different from what I have in my "archive". It seems this plan is almost the same level as I have. Thank you.

Hi Zdenek

Just an enquiry as to find out whether or not you started building this model? If so please let me know as I am considering this as my next model. It would also be an entry into scale sail.

Best Regards, Tony.

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.
