Model Slipway Club 500 (www.club500slipway.com)
Dave Brumstead (Model Boats) has reported, in a review, that he first came across the Club 500 at Barleylands County Show in 1998 where members of the Southend Club were observed purchasing these kits from Model Slipway.
The boat has been developed from an enquiry from the CADMA club who were looking for a quick build basic model to introduce beginners to the hobby.
The 500 bit comes from the fact that the boats are approximately 515mm long. These fast little craft can be used for racing adhering to a well established set of rules.
