Completed Soling 1 Meter R/C Sailboat
I bought this model this Spring planning on putting it together over the summer. Things happen and I never even got a chance to open the box and look at the instructions. Then a friend moved out of town and gave me his complete boat, so I don't need this kit. As the title says, it is brand new in the original box. Nothing is missing.
A new kit at Victor Model Products sells for $125.95.

SOLING 1 METER
The Soling 1 Meter kit is a radio-controlled version of the famous Soling racing yacht. The American Model Yachting Association has designated this model kit as a "One Design Class" radio controlled racing sailboat. It is presently one of the most popular classes in www.AMYA.org and has the largest number of registered models within the AMYA racing class system. Control is accomplished using a simple, two-channel radio transmitting on ground frequencies of 27 or 75 MHz. The two control functions control the rudder and set of sails. Stability has been designed into this boat so that even the beginner can enjoy the thrill of R/C sailing from the start. This model fits inside most compact station wagons fully rigged. If required, the mast can be easily removed for transportation, and quickly re-installed at lakeside with no re-adjustments necessary. The keel and rudder are also removable for storage. Mast rake, sail tension and shape are fully adjustable for maximum performance in any wind condition. No special tools are required for assembly.
Construction is quite simple. The hull structure consists of molded plastic parts including the hull, deck, two bulkheads and a transom. A plywood waterproof trunk assembly, located by a factory-precut slot, supports the removable keel within the hull. The rudder is supported by a wood block, also factory located. Rigging attach points are backed up with wood blocks for strength. The mast and clubs are fabricated from Basswood, the mast being partially shaped. Sails are made from high quality sailcloth and are completely finished and ready for rigging. The kit includes all required hardware to complete the model and the assembly manual leads you through assembly, step-by-step. All that you will need to complete the model is a two-channel radio with a sail winch, lead shot for ballast, glues, and paint!
