   Just had a look.  Can't see the ballast in the keel.  Too well sealed, but as there is an additional
   lump of lead down in the depths the main ballast is almost certain to be lead also.   The instructions 
   quote a sand / cement mix.

   Forgot I had left a receiver battery pack in the hull, along with servos and receiver.  :embarrassed:           
   Battery's will be well past the sell by date now although no corrosion visible.

      Thanks.   :-)  Tried to do something a bit different.  The hull markings are self adhesive                               
      trim stripes.  Easier than painting.

575mm  Less than 2 Ft
Sails quite well
One of our members sails one
It likes wind and sails well when
my Marblehead is on B rig

Ned

I was wondering how tall they are so I can tell if it will fit in the car boot without dimasting it?

52 pounds, good price!! When you think a Micro Magic kit is around 150 quid, and the Carbon version even more!

Well it's strange you should say that as their website  http://www.lesromodels.co.uk/ is being currently flagged by Google as a bad site......  I was on it a few days ago without problems so I'm not sure what's happened, but I may just give them a ring......

.........................................

I've just rung them and they are aware of the problem, which has now been fixed but it may take a bit of time for Google to catch up... and that address above is their current one.  :-))
