I built the Mermaid even earlier than that. My mother brought it home for me after a training course she went on for the M.O.D. in London when I was about 13, which would make it 1968. At the time it didn't seem very EeZe to build, but with some help from a neighbour, I managed to get it finished, and it eventually sailed on the well known Lindow Common boating lake. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

When I've rebuilt the 9 boats in the garage, I may just take you up on that Allen. I'm wondering if I could possibly make a worse job than I did the first time around ? 😂 Thanks for the offer mate, are they in pdf form ? If so, could I get a copy by attachment to an email ? My email is on my profile mate. Kindest wishes, Dave W 😊

PDF or Excel. PDF is ok but you will need to go to a printer to upsize them. I normally upscale them on Excel then cut cut and join the printouts. I did this with the Meccano Dolphin 16 which I pushed up to Dolphin 19 recently. So, yes I can attach them to a file. Go on revive your 13 year old self. Let me know which one you would like?

I can use either on my big pc. And I have an A3 printer, so size isn't a problem, Cheers, Dave W 😊

Hi AllenA, Did you know there is a dedicated web site for Eezebilt plans? They also have some new models in the old style.

Hi Jarvo. Thanks, I should have told everyone that. It is where I downloaded the plans and then used them in Excel. Pity there weren't more free sites like that. Everyone is too interested in making a few bob out of us these days.

Its nice to see that people are willing to support the old style models and make the boat instead of just assembling it
