Not heard of this make / model before !



https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/134052592203?hash=item1f36283a4b:g:-wcAAOSwWXhiLe1b



I have too many projects on the go, so it’s time for a clear-out of a few of them which I’m unlikely to finish. This extremely rare Maycraft Mercury dates back to 1962. Length is 38”, beam is a generous 11”.

The box is a mess but the kit is complete down to the glazing, metal window frames, rails and stanchions.

Maycraft were not around for long but produced superior kits using quality materials and accurately cut components – this was reflected in the price – the Mercury was about twice the price of an Aerokits Sea Commander or 34”crash tender.

The superstructure part of the plan is missing but this should not be an issue. All parts are accurately cut and numbered and the instructions are excellent. The one piece cabin is straightforward and is built around a deep coaming.

As can be seen, the hull is ready for skinning. The Enya 35 will be left in place. The toothed pulley has a 1 way bearing fitted as I intended to have on-board start via an MFA geared motor, hence the lack of a groove in the flywheel. On reflection I think an electric motor would be the better option.

There was an r/c plane by the name of Mercury Matador way way back in time but they had a different logo.

No, Mercury models a totally different animal. Seem to remember Maycraft doing a grey boat kit, Same era as 'Feltra'. Not on Dodgys site - - yet.
