Lesro Pilot Boat
« on: October 20, 2013, 01:41:08 PM »

I Recently bought this part built Pilot boat from Wicker (Charlie) on here and started work on it this week after I managed to get a set of plans from Lesro Models. Its a wooden hull, think I read somewhere that they're pretty rare, decided to fibreglass the inside to make sure she's sealed, sorry if the photos are a bit blurry, I took them with my phone, It's something different from a trawler anyway haha.

Hi Mark, thanks, she's 34 inches long and 10 wide, there's no scale on the plans or instructions but I'm pretty sure she's around 1:12 scale, cheers, Cam

Hi Mark, this is my first 1:12 build, I've done a couple of 1:32 trawlers, but I see macs mouldings have quite a few bits n pieces in 1:12 scale, so that saves me making all the wheelhouse equipment haha

Methinks it's 1/16 scale.
Halmatic type hulls were 42-44 ft.
34 inches at 1/16 means 44ft.
1/12 would be a rather short pilot
boat at 34ft.
