Soleil D'Or
« on: November 28, 2006, 11:42:55 PM »

Marine Modelling had a free plan and had a short article on Soleil d'Or, a 42ft motor yacht in October 2005. The boat is owned by a friend of mine and I helped write the article.

Has anybody built her or know of someone building her ?

I am planning to once I build up the courage to try plank on frame! 

Cheers
Chris

Duncan there is a hint of red on that flag so its a fair bet that its the Welsh Dragon on its traditional green and white background

Hi Jim,

Great isn't it! Built by a chap in Lymington. I bought via eBay. Have one part built myself that I'm building as she'd have been when built.

Cheers
Chris
