Lindberg Jolly Roger Need Instructions!
Posted by awheat13 on Saturday, January 14, 2012 9:18 PM

Hello everyone! I purchased a Lindberg Jolly Roger model for my son for christmas, we went to the hobby store today to get all the paints he needed for the project, and being a child, he left the instructions somewhere in the store! I called them up and they cannot find them, they are now unfortunately closed, and they are not open on Sundays. And of course they will be close don monday for MLK day. He was looking forward to painting and assembling his kit this weekend, but now he has nothing to go off of. I have been all over online looking for the instructions, but have come up short. Can anyone here help me out in locating the instructions online? Or does anyone have any copies they can upload? Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks everyone!

Hi Adam,

I have several of those kits in my stash and I have one in the works also.

My scanners giving me fits right not but I'll pull one out and take a few pictures of the instructions. I'll post them for you shortly to give you something to go on at least.

Adam, these are the pictures of the instructions I took tonight.  I can also scan them for you Monday at work and put them in a pdf file for you if you need.

Unless my tired old eyes are failing me, isn't this Jolly Roger kit  the same as the French frigate LA FLORE that I put together during the 1970s ?

Yep, that's the one and it's a classic and great model. I'm delighted that it's still available. There have been some very nice Continental frigates and Surprise models bashed from that.

I also built one of these a couple of years back. made my own version of a privateer. I had a lot of fun. i bought 2 just so i could go back and build the La Flore.

Thought I'd just bump this thread up to mention that I have the instructions in PDF if you still need them Adam.

I'm also building (actually stalled for now on it) a Continental Frigate out of the JR/La Flore kit and in the future will be building one as La Ville d'Archangel - an Acadian expulsion ship.

A couple of pics of my Jolly Roger/La Flore dressed up as a Continental Frigate.

Adam, let me know if you want the instructions and I'll email them to you.

I have the instructions on a pdf file if you still need them.
