Kyosho Northwind Yacht
« on: May 30, 2010, 11:35:24 PM »

I have been given a model of the Northwind Yacht, unfortunately the masts, sails and boom are missing, does anyone know where I can acquire these items, the rest of the fittings are with it including radio and receiver, it would be nice to sail it again. maybe someone has these items gathering dust.

If you have no luck with the proper items, there are many photo's on the net and it may be possible to make your own. Many model shops have small diameter tube etc.

I have just bought some fishing tackle clips with swivels attached to make up some rigging for my new yacht.

Is it the 36 or the 28?
Do a search for Northwind on RCUniverse.com in the Sail forum, there are some good pictures and ideas for rigging, one person used rigging from a Victoria.
