    To start this restoration it may help to see what I was presented with when I first purchased the model. I have to say that the pictures make it look a lot better than it actually is and many may be horrified at what I have done in the next few posts but its all necessary to finish up with a structurally sound model.

    The deck is discoloured and cracked and will have to be planked to strengthen it and make it look the correct colour, the cabin structures are all veneered and are unfortunately suffering from delamination so will have to be re veneered.
    On the plus side the wooden parts of the masts are all in excellent condition and will need little attention, however all the metal (brass) fittings are in need of restoration, at some point they have been plated (nickel) so they will all have to be cleaned and old plating removed and re plated. The rigging wires are all in varying states of twist and kink so again will have to be replaced.
    So there's a lot of work to be done over the coming months

    Fabulous yacht. I would like one myself! Looking forward to seeing the restored model and perhaps a video of it sailing. Good luck.

    This is a sailing ketch called โ€œInga IVโ€. It is German kit of a sailing ketch which is now out of production. The model is approx 52โ€ณ in total height and 43โ€ณ from bow to stern. It has a traditional full length keel and almost sails itself when on the lake. All decks and superstructure are plywood with much of it being mahogany veneered and coated with many layers of varnish.โ€

    I have just purchased an Inga IV which is in reasonable condition, however it looks as if its not been touched for a great number of years so I intend to repair and replace fittings and wood as required.

    Lovely looking model. I particularly like the canoe stern, not often we see that in a model.

    Roy thank you so much for pointing me to this mine of information, it will be invaluable in my restoration it shows so many things that aren't on the kit version.

    Hi good luck with the restoration. I restored my one maybe 15 years ago, it was a gift, and it took a while. I made sure the stanchions had a firm base to sit in with reinforcing the wood under the deck. I could not work out how to get inside the hull without taking the rear mast out, so left it as designed.
    I have since by shear good fortune obtained an unused set of sails and these were installed 3 years ago. Sails as you say with very little help from the bank.

    Lovely boat the full size boat was up for sale maybe 2 years ago and the photos of the original are still there to see.
