    ๐Ÿ“ Scale figures
    4 days ago by RichardE ( Recruit)

    Is it worth trying eBay? I bought some passengers for my Krick Felix.
    They are horribly painted but once primed and repainted they are quite acceptable

    Can anyone advise me where to search for plans for a rc model narrow boat 40-50โ€ long. Riverside Models used to offer a laser cut kit that appeared to look good,but are not trading anymore. Any relevant info would be helpful. Regards. Terrry Ault.

    Amazing info, thanks so much.
    That explains how I could afford the boat but not the RC gear.

    ๐Ÿ“ Sea Hornet price
    2 months ago by RichardE ( Recruit)

    My first ever attempt at building a โ€œRCโ€ model boat was in 1972 with an aerokits? Sea Hornet.
    I fitted it with an ED marine diesel but at the time could not afford the RC gear. I seem to remember that a single channel transmitter was around ยฃ16 and I was earning ยฃ70 a month!
    I see that SLEC offer an updated kit for ยฃ80 and I am very tempted to revisit those early building days.
    I am very curious about how much the first kit would have cost back then and wondered if anyone would have that information?

    ๐Ÿ“ Parts list for Joffre
    9 months ago by RichardE ( Recruit)

    I have the instructions for the Caldercraft Joffre from many years ago if an electronic copy would be of use. Unfortunately I am away until next Thursday so wouldnโ€™t be able to deal with it until then.
    Let me know if this would be of any use.
