Very cool. Looks a bit odd with no one driving it though....

I have a complete un-made Lesro (Duplex) kit sitting in my cupboard, ?35 on ebay hehe ;D Dont know if i'll go for working outboards, might be a bit ambitious for me!
 I have my own Severn to do first though.

Did any of the 21's use the full orange colour scheme as per the 75's or were they all the part grey?

Wow!! ? ?;D ?
I'm really impressed by that, Johno. ?You can tell by the pictures of the finished boat that it really goes! One day I'd like to have the knowledge/experience to be able to do something like that from scratch. You must be chuffed to bits!

Very impressive you have done well and it certainly looks a treat, Just out of curiosity I was wondering if you are going to produce the outboard legs for the sale to useless twits like me who have neither the knowledge or the skills to produce something so great, and if you are put me down for two right now..

Hi Guys

Thanks for the comments  :) :)

As to the question of building them to sell. I still have a few issues that I need to resolve with the durability and workings and then there is the question of the amount of time it takes to produce all the parts, as each is a one off. I may consider it in the future if I thought there was demand for enough units to get some of the components mass-produced and be able to sell them at a reasonable price.

Regards

John
