Thought for a moment that it was the same model in the Classic Sail section of this months MMI which comes from Kiw-land. Unfortunately, very similar but not identical.

Hi Martno1fan.
I am 99% sure that this is an Argus Wishbone schooner from Model Boats plans No.  MM/405.
The plans are for a model 30 inches loa and 8 inches beam.
Frequently scaled up to 60 inches and I know that there was a GRP hull at that size available.
She is very attractive with nice underwater lines.
The 'wishbone' is the 'double' boom from the fore mast which allows the wishbone sail to take up a correct shape on either tack.
The plans should be available via Encanta.
regards Roy
