There is a plan and booklet. If it is the booklet I have a copy and can photocopy and send you a PDF file. Won't cost anything, if this is what you want please send me a pm with your e-mail address
You should know that the plans are incorrect in respect of the flying bridge which is shown facing the wrong way, as is mine. I have to change at some time

Hi Doug
I did acquire this as a part built model and followed the plan. My scale ship model club quickly advised me the plan was wrong! Should be easy enough to alter, the main problem is I have the lights installed and they use the outer frames to make the connections. Sails well on a calm day so I will probably defer until the winter.
Caldercraft kits do make into nice models

Live long and prosper

Thought you might like to see photos of the orginal Talacre and a couple pics of my model of Talacre.
(If you didn't know. It takes it's name from the collery it worked from in North Wales).Sorry, I don't have the plan though.
