Volvo 70 Ericsson Plans
I have been searching for a couple of weeks now and have not been able to find the plans anywhere for this boat. I have requested them from the original website(http://www.velarc.it/) but so far I have not gotten a response. If someone has the plans for this boat could you please email them to me at [email protected] Thanks

Hi, I would actually be interested in these plans too. I found only a partial copy online, and would really like to see the entire plans. My email is [email protected]. Thanks!

Hi Buzz,

Thanks for your reply! Yes, those are the plans I'm looking for, but I read elsewhere on this site that the owners of Vela RC no longer reply . . .

Well I am not sure but I did find these on the net. Let me know if these are the ones you are looking for.

Thanks! Yes, those are the ones, however, I already have this pdf. I wanted to see if perhaps someone had a copy without the edges cut off, but if not, it's not a big deal. The necessary info is all there. Thank you anyway!

I looked and looked too. Best ones I found. I then found the Americas_3 plans and they are complete and a similar looking boat. As most of the cup style boats, look similar. They all have very nice lines and a good subject to model.

With the Americas_3, I had this bright idea of printing it out at 200% for a bigger model. Got it all setup in Adobe, hit print. Heard the printer cranking out page after page after page after page and thought HUH!!! I thought the plans were for a 650mm boat. Then I see they are for a 1.2m boat. So now I have it printed, not sure I could fit it in my little car if I did build it. Would be a site to see though. A RC sail boat with a 8 plus foot mast. Would be a nice project. Would not be a weekend build for sure.
