Many vintage model sailing yachts can be considered to be genuine antiques of significant historical and financial value. It may be a serious error to start restoration without first establishing the identity, or period, of the boat and obtaining good advice concerning the techniques and materials that should be employed.
After first identifying the boat – here – contact the Vintage Model Yacht Group – here – for advice. Their regular publication – The Turning Pole – is a mine of information concerning similar projects and is essential reading and source material for any restoration project. It is sent to members of the Vintage Group on a regular basis.
