    Righty-O Wez, let the horses go again! Don't know why I thought yours was a 34", must be confusing yours with someone else's.

    Good that you can get the bits Ok as with mine being 1:12 I will have to get from difference sources.

    Thanks Chris mines definitely the 47 checked before I looked the other day thereโ€™s 2 different sizes but did make sure the dearer one was for mine just emailed kayley at SLEC just to see if they did send a diagram of some sort I know with everyoneโ€™s help thereโ€™s few I didnโ€™t know where they went but the rest I know just going off most pics just want sure if the little round wooden bits were for the roof cowl vents as was going to put small bolts through them so easy to take off for painting but thank you Chris for double checking

    Hold your horses Wez!

    If I remember your Huntsman is 34" long and a scale of 1:11. Those that SLEC do are 1:16 and 1:8 so the fittings are nowhere near the sizes you want.

    As for the rubbing strips I use mahogany or bass both of which bend fine with steaming.

    Just spoken to my friend at SLEC who makes the parts and he suggests that you email Chris at SLEC for the details.
    The wooden circles are spacers for the cabin air vents. Hope this helps?

    Hi,

    Wooden bits possibly under the mushroom vents or backing pads for 'T' cleats?

    Thing that looks like single spoke steering wheel is likely a windscreen centrifugal wiper?

    Good luck ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Probably an email might be the best as they might have instructions they can send you? But I will still ask Colin at SLEC today.
