Many thanks for the comments guys, yes this conversion was based on the Lesro MK21 version, so I cant modify the hull, as the kit supplied one is very thin glass fibre, tissue like in places and I had to strengthen all over just to make me feel safe sailing it !
its just over 30 inches long, about a 1:32nd scale I believe. I did have a lot of assistance and guidance from a couple of guys who used to work on them too, so they knew their stuff as to positions of the map table, decca viewer, convector heater in the wheelhouse etc. as i did super details the wheelhouse too, cutting through to the radio shack, adding the settee's and map table, plus a red led below the glass table to give a "red glow" from the table when dark, plus a green led below the decca viewer tube, so that adds a green hue to the underside of the wheelhouse roof. I added the stairs leading down to the lower deck, adding a blue/white led down there to give the effect of a flourescent light in the companionway too. yes, the fire monitors are graupner units, as i have no facility to machiine brass units to correct dimensions, but they give a reasonable effect.
It runs on a 6v decaperm motor and can pull any boat in our club for hours on end if need be, the motor plus the 60mm prop just lets it cruise all day long.
the kit was bought off good old ebay ! someone had purchased it, left it in the garage fior a rainy day and never got round to it, so it was sold on , "clearing someones estate out" shall i say, still in its original box and hardly a packet had been opened, the only things that had been done was the hull bulwark had been over sanded too low, so it caused me soem greif getting the deck height right.
