    Hi Duncan,

    Iโ€™m not sure what I paid but it was just short of ยฃ40 if I remember rightly. Certainly a lot more than ยฃ9.75

    Hi,
    Thanks for your input. The one post by Graham for the police launch looks a possibility. They have gone up a lot since you built one. The cheapest seems to be ยฃ40 and that is with no fittings or accessories. I think you said you paid ยฃ9.75!๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi Duncan,

    I built an HA Kits model with my 8 year old grandson. There is a blog here:
    https://model-boats.com/blogs/99841

    We assembled the hull and cabin from the pre-cut ply in one day using superglue - without getting fingers stuck! He really enjoyed that day.

    I did the painting and fitting out with motor and radio gear largely without his help as I think that would have been a step too far for him.

    He does enjoy sailing it though!

    There are a range of different boats available from HA kits.

    Hi, Can anyone recommend a model boat kit suitable for a 9year old to build as his 1st model. He wants to be able to sail it. He has sailed my 34" Fire boat and now got the 'bug'! I'm his grandad and unfortunately I don't live nearby in order to help. Nothing too expensive please. He hasn't built any models before. Thanks in advance. Cheers Duncan
