hasegawa:- "Wing Of Yamaha" 1/20th Yacht???????
Posted by lolok on Tuesday, December 12, 2006 2:14 PM

Dunce [D)] Another kit I've never heard of?? Since joining E.bay and listening to my card scream I have picked up a few nice ships.A few I've never heard of like the 'Water-witch' I asked about earlier.Well today I just saw and fell for the Hasegawa kit of a 1/20th Ocean racer called the 'Wing of Yamaha'.

  2 feet long,25" high and 6' wide.Silkspan sails and what looks like typical excellent Japanese moulding.Yet I have never come across or heard of this one before?

  Do any of our small band of shipwrights know anything??? You can see it in the ship section.he still has 3 left if anyone is interested...

I have one (unbuilt) and its a pretty nice kit, well detailed with a complete interior .   Designed to be sailed single-handed and state-of-the-art in 1975.

Hello Steves;

I am certainly reviving this thread, it so happens that I have this kit also, my father gave it to me before he passed away and I am now coming around to putting it together. But, the instruction manual is lost.

Do you still have the kit? If so, would you be willing to scan, take pictures of the manual for me? I would be more than happy to pay for the effort. I really want to put the model together.

 

Regards;

Well, after a long trawl through Scalemates, there's no evidence of this one.  And I know I've seen them on eBay.  But, if there's not kit listing on Scalemates, it's dificult to find the instuctions.

I checked a number of "usual suspects," too:  ARII, Entex, Otaki, as well as Hasegawa

Wish I could offer better.

How about this one?

Looks a lot like the Otaki "Long Beach" https://www.scalemates.com/kits/otaki-oti-80-3800-long-beach--191371

But could be the Mirage Hobby "Opty" https://www.scalemates.com/kits/mirage-hobby-50201-s-y-opty--108311

But might also be the Pyro "Racing Yawl" too  https://www.scalemates.com/kits/pyro-310-98-racing-yawl--1176777

(which was reboxed by Lindberg & Kleeware)

 

No joy on instructions online.  I believe I have a Long Beach in the stash, with instructions, though.

Hi;

     I have most of these and the OPTY is without a doubt the smallest. I started buying them back in the Seventies.That's when I had more money than sense. A customer would want one(  This was in the Late Eighties) and I would buy two. One for them, one for me.

      I upgraded two to be Motorsailers. Not hard, considering the hardware was already there. I do know that many were absoultely gorgeous moldings. Some were from Imaii, Some were Entex and some were Hase.

Hi CapnMac,

 

I have searched high and low and no instructions, I am pretty sad about it, but thank you so much for looking around, maybe someone will hop in someday with them. I will keep looking and update the message if I find them.

 

Have a great day!
