LESRO Sportsman mk1 restoration - Posted: 18th Oct 2017
Found this model in a junk shop in Lincolnshire , no motor or radio gear. Not done any boat modelling for many years so I took it home.
The hull and cab are pretty solid for a 30 year old so i will start off by stripping the paint and giving it a freshen up, then I plan to add windows which I have cut from 3mm perspex and lower the rear deck. Also I am toying with a plan to convert the cabin into a mk2 sportsman by adding a top deck and radio mast, then finish off with a few scale figures and fittings.
I will keep adding photos as I progress, if you are reading this and have a sportsman I would love to see what you have done with yours,
regards, Nick.

Welcome aboard. Lucky find in the junk shop, hull looks pretty much like the Sea Scout!
Happy renovating, cheers Doug 😎
