Billings model Mary Ann by jimlake Seaman   Posted: 7 years ago
I am desperate to find a plan or box cover art or photos of the wheelhouse of the original kit. Despite what people say, there were marked differences between the original kit and the one on sale now. So please can anyone help

Gannet 15cc four stroke by jimlake Seaman   Posted: 9 years ago
HI Peter I bought one of these from Ebay last year and am In the process of of a complete refurbishment. May II suggest the following, Dave Wiggins wrote In Model Boats mag. a series of articles directly on the Gannet, Oct 2006, Nov 2006, Dec 2006 and a single article In Oct 2007. Another good source Is the website Halfords sell an additive to convert leadfree petrol back to leaded for veteran cars. Another good source Is hemingway I/c kits. com especially for the electric side of things, Ie coils etc.
