LESRO Models.

I think the Atlantic 21 RNLI RIB Lifeboat is a real collectors item but I would guess, the Pilot Boat must be the 'most built kit'.

These pictures of early Lesro models are priceless and they have also helped me as I re-construct an old Rapier that has a lot of parts missing and with no plans to refer to, any pictures are very helpful.

Fond memories there, I loved my Lesro Arrow, a really good looking boat, fast and handled well, plus it was easy to build.  :-))


I almost hate to say it, but I've still got a part built Atlantic 21 and a 'new-in-makers-box' one too.  :-)

I've got a Lesro models Sprite, but I thought they were originally called "Ramrod" or am I confusing it with something else?

I had forgotten that Lesro also made a smaller version of the Rapier - and the pictures of that were helpful too! 


The blue Stilleto model pictured also has the "registered port" as being Exmouth  - I was living in  Exmouth in the early 70's and (almost) remember seeing a boat that looked just like that!
