    The SLEC kits get pretty good reviews - so it should be easier than the original Lesro kit - certainly a lot lighter - so should also perform better . As long as you take your time - ask for advice here on this forum if you get stuck - you will be able to make a good job of it .
    There are plenty of members who can give you advice on motors, ESC's etc if you need that

    Hi Forrest E,
    Will you be doing a build log ?
    I am sure the other members would see it in the Build log section.

    These small motor boats, particularly the Les Rowell designs, are always very successful, usually quite fast and handling well, whilst being relatively simple to build.

    Cheers, Nerys

    SLEC kits are brilliant. They have taken the time to update the plans and wood used. Then in saying that Les Rowell's designs are always good!

    hello i have as i was also looking for the plans i contacted LESRO ! you only had the boat plan but not the hull drawing . . . i got this one again from LESRO and their manufacturer for the wooden parts. . . i'm also building it a bit bigger in 1,45 meter length and then in GFK natural . . .

    until now i had a lot of work. . . . but it will be worth the result πŸ‘

    Hi sven-te,

    Looks like you have been busy.

    Scheint mir ganz gut zu gehen SvenπŸ‘
    Gute Arbeit.
    Schreib weiter im 'Build Blog' Rubrik, dann am Ende kannst du ein BΓΌchlein ausdrucken als Erinnerungs-Stuck. Viel Erfolg.
    Viele Grüße aus München, Doug 😎

    Good work.
    Continue writing in the 'Build Blog' section, then at the end you can print out a booklet as a souvenir. I wish you success.
