    Tony,
    I think that scanning the few pages about the Starlet could be done.
    As to building - I might sometime in the future. Not decided yet. I have a 31" Trojan Cruiser kit in mind. All the best.

    Daniel,
    If you would like the rest of the magazine items about Starlet, they were also published in a booklet Simple Model Yachts. Send your email in a message should they be of any value. The problem with many of these old magazine articles are that finishing materials, adhesives, electrics and r/c have all moved on. Nevertheless there could be something of value.
    I wish you every success with the build

    Hi Colin, Hi All

    Through tony29h (who liked my post!) I became aware of this Forum about the Starlet.
    Amazing as it may be - looking back at the few (about 15) journals of the Model Boats I kept for over 50 years I stumbled upon the December 1966 magazine with the Starlet plans still inside!
    See pictures.

    All the best, Daniel

    Thanks guys. I will certainly pass your comments on. He is a perfectionist and all his boats are built to an extremely high standard. He hand paints and varnishes his models and thinks nothing of doing up to 20 very thin coats to get a fantastic mirror or satin finish. Not to mention making all his own brass fittings ! Envy - certainly not but we love his work and passion. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜
