Anyone ever heard of "M+M Developments" model "Junkit"??
« on: April 10, 2014, 08:17:54 PM »

I picked up this kit from a dealer here in the states that had gotten it from a long-gone importer.   

It is a "fun scale model of a Chinese Junk",  by M+M Developments of Newport, South Wales, UK. 

The boat is 620mm long, and is designed for 3-channel RC-  rudder, sail control, and auxiliary motor. 

A search of the WWW has turned up next to nothing about this company, or this model in particular.   

Anyone here ever heard of it, seen one built, or maybe even built one themselves?   

I'm thinking about building it, and I'm wondering how good a sailer it is......

They used to make the Fiesta yacht kit plus the Junk it and
I believe a couple of other models.
