Are you going to let DENIS the Menace skipper your boat ? Don't let him damage.😉

Still a great looking model, do SLEC sell the fittings separately?

Response by Novagsi0 on the 29th Dec 2017
Yes they do. Their model is tiny ,this is the precedent 31" huntsman. The fittings look the perfect scale. In my opinion there too big for their model.
Fenders for Sale. - Posted: 27th Nov 2017

Me mother finally finished the boat fenders, scale 1/11th ideal for Huntsman 31 or larger, also perhaps a Tug boat or other old school pleasure craft.
A lot of attention to detail has gone into making these, 1 set offered.

We could make smaller ones see if this one goes first since she needs to buy some more string.
Response by RNinMunich on the 30th Nov 2017
Await developments with interest 😉

Would be great for Narrow Boat fenders.
Fender addition - Posted: 20th Nov 2017
Since reality TV has reached full swing on the box the Huntsman has stepped up a gear.
The front fender has been fitted and incidentally my mother who made these, has been busy making another set she plans to offer them for sale via Ebay, to gauge what interest there could be.

I added the finished product to ebay if anyone was interested. Link above should hopefully find the fenders these will probable be the only ones offered for sale.

Response by Novagsi0 on the 28th Nov 2017
Someone on a popular internet auction site has asked if I can make one for a full size boat!!!!!, and in Pink. really 😊
My mom is going to need a bigger set of knitting needles.

With regret I declined, based on the pink rope needed.
Response by BOATSHED on the 17th Jan 2018
You might be better of offering them on here for sale, there are normally quite a few for sale on Ebay.
More handrails fitted - Posted: 13th Nov 2017
Following a visit to the International boat show for bits and pieces I took advantage of x-factory rubbish on the TV to escape the wife, and do some more on the boat. Handrails to the rear in progress. Interesting tip I bought some 3/32 steam nipple fittings which after running a 2mm drill to the point allow my 2mm brass wire to push through. The idea being a nice finish to the bottom of the handrail and a secure mounting hole so the hand rail can be removed if needed. see picture you will get the idea the ladder one is a lager size 1/8 fitting for welding wire. Just need to add the cross pieces and solder up.

Last run of the year. - Posted: 6th Nov 2017
Ran the model again Sunday for the last time this year, proved well with a little ballast added. After 15 minutes of running checked the temps on the motor, Only just detect the suggestion of warming up, being such a cold day. The water cooling scoop has not been added as yet. Maybe not even needed at all. Hope to continue to source / make the fittings oven the coming months with the boat show Saturday perhaps for a new LiPo battery.
small detail items - Posted: 30th Oct 2017
The hobby doesn't have to cost the earth I made some ladders from welding brass filler wire, and an exhaust outlet from a draw knob I found whilst walking to the shops. Also done some additional planking using stirrer sticks from costa fortune coffee shop. (My son grabbed me a hand full enough for a life time's modelling).

That's what I use for decking as well👍 ,don't drink enough coffee or make enough money to justify going into Costa every day so asked the kind lady at the works canteen for a few and was kindly given a few ,I asked her to order me some the next time she got them in , a box of 1000 for less than £2 a bargain and there were over 1500 in the box .

Cheers Marky
First test run - Posted: 16th Oct 2017
Decided to try it out Sunday, no major problems need a bit more weight in the back. Good turn of speed even with old recycled ni-cads from a drill pack. will be looking to get a lipo pack in the new year but pleased.

👍 Exactly what I thought Mark.😉
Otherwise the boat looks pretty good.
Cheers Doug 😎
Response by Novagsi0 on the 19th Oct 2017
The best I can do is when I get a new battery put it in cross ways, the 3 sticks that I used for a test were already near the back, just length ways down the boat. I added some weights behind the rudder shaft that helped a little not these photographs. Some fettling needed next year when the season starts again. Cheers all

You could always do a ballast test in the bath, without running the motor.
