Review by The Model Retailer
Any level of modeler will be able to assemble
Kyosho's Fortune 612 sailboat in less than 30 minutes. Assembly
is easy and straightforward - no tools, paint or glue are required.
The Fortune 612 is well packed in Styrofoam,
molded to fit the hull and other components. A beautiful ocean
setting is depicted on the box, along with photos of the kit's
contents. The instructions and decals are packed at the top of
Although the Fortune 612
is about 90% pre-built, and a Perfex two-channel radio is
factory-installed, complete instruction books for both the
boat and radio system are included. Detailed photos of what
little assembly is necessary are provided in the boat manual,
and all the features of the radio and its operation are
included in the radio manual.
The Fortune 612 sailed beautifully. Tacking
upwind was almost as easy as downwind sailing. The boat
instantly responded to every radio command. Beginners will
love the Fortune 612's ease of sailing, and experienced
yachters will appreciate its agility.
This is a pre-assembled RTR kit. Final assembly
takes 15 to 30 minutes - sails are mounted to the masts, all the
rigging is complete, decals are factory-applied and, for good
measure, a decal sheet is included to further detail the boat.
