Just wrote some text, selected the associated photos and ...
ALL TEXT VANISHED GRRRRR!
So here we go again!🤔
Just downloaded the Billing Instruction Book.
Basic construction is basically the same as the Billing fish cutter
I am currently restoring and converting from static to RC. So have already learned a few tricks in that respect.
Booklet includes all dimensions and details of the mast parts and spars so no problem there either. Masts and spars can be easily tapered from dowels on the mini lathe
, or even at a pinch a mini drill clamped in a bench vice. So no insurmountable problems there, I hope😉
All the decoration and twiddly bits is another kettle of steamed fish though 😮
Are the fittings still there? See 3rd pic.
We'll see. maybe Colin finds a local taker!?
Kit seems to date from the early 80's. Just like my ancient fish cutter Gina 2
Blog of my hull restoration for that is on this site😊
Cheers, Doug 😎
