I discovered a grey primer break through line approx 60mm long about 1.5mm in height 2 to 3mm above portside stern deck I bought some 4mm pinstripe tape to solve the problem around the outside of the entire stern deck level cabin.

Finally took a pic of the windows awaiting installation.

The plans I've bought all have the designers name on them.
I have tried to buy plans from MB plans service and were expensive and postage was twice the price of the plan.
I have built many boats from MB magazine free plans over the years.
I even built a  3 metre powered glider from a half page photo & plan from a march 1963 Aeromodeller when I eventually sold it a wine grower who'd never flown a model bought it to scare birds off his crop.
I doubt it lasted long.

If that's the case I can't understand why Model Boats haven't sued them? I've bought many plans from them over the years.
Probably for the same reason that others have not sued John Tom, it would cost too much and they would receive next to nothing. I have heard that the couple that do them receive a letter from one of the publishers about every six months which they ignore. They used to reply requesting proof of copyright, which most publishers never acquire.

Thanks for the Ebay link....that plan is relisted and I was very tempted!

Their other items include a few paddlers and among other stuff there is a plan and photos of 'Bleasdale', a Scarborough paddler I haven't come across before.

Because of the postage one needs to buy a handful of plans but I am tempted on a few I must say...there is a Clyde Puffer in there too.

Many of them state they are 'Model Boat Plans' so they are quite open on the source.......in any event, as long as they're available I'm happy!

Almost all the plans they sell on that site are pirated from Model Boats Magazine.

Brilliant little site, thanks for the info. This site also has Cessna Bird Dog plans, electric powered, another of the family interests. Well worth a visit.
