Hi Big H

you will find answers on this thead

http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=1814.0

Sailsetc also produce a kit so you can make your own.
Having dealt with Graham Bantock on another order, I can say he is a good egg.

Other suppliers are also listed.

I second that - a bit easier on the pocket than most of the others.

BigH,

It might be better if you make your own, it is quite simple, and the sail material is available over in Sydney from Draftex Corporation P.O. Box 121 Gladesville NSW 2111, Phone 02 98163311, he has always been very helpful to me.........

Big H where did ya go???

Mike, House Martin sails made my sails for my lidl special, and the change in the boats is unreal! before she sat and looked pretty, now she buries her shoulder in and moves at a respectable speed for a little one.
