    Thanks Rick. I trace them anyway as I usually need to resize as building all my models at 1:12 and like to print the parts out for transferring to ply but it would have been easier to work from accurate templates rather than redesign them.

    The Huntsman 28 is ready for painting and came out well and being smaller than the Veron kit I modified it so that the superstructure lifts off in one rather than having hatches in the cockpit and cabin roof to gain access.

    Hi All - it was me (probably amongst others) that posted awhile ago about the poor drawings that guy on Ebay sells. The ones I bought were for the Fairey Swordsman and Huntsman 28. The kit drawings were fine (unsurprisingly being Aerokits and Veron respectively), but the hand drawn templates were shocking being unsymmetrical, inaccurate slots, wavy lines etc. and would involve a lot of work and a challenge to build from them even for the more experienced. He has quite a few plans advertised. How he has the nerve to sell such poor drawings and copyright them as well (!) I don't know.

    Fortunately for me I can draw and so just used the kit drawings to produce my own templates.

    Hi Paul

    Not sure if I'm just unlucky but slight word of warning and nothing that can't be sorted. I also purchased templates from eBay guy and have used them to trace and replace the missing bits.
    Came across a problem today dry fitting the main cabin. The ringed area in the photo is an ebay template reproduction the others are taken from originals. You can see its way out but I suppose if I'd have produced them all from the ebay plans it may have been OK.
    Just a thought for you to contemplate.

    Paul.
    I overlooked to mention the 'Plans & Docs' area of this website that has photos, drawings and videos of the Crash Tenders that were a very useful resource when I was building my boat.
    If you are considering building from a kit the VMW 46" Crash Rescue Tender is definitely the one to go for.
    There are a couple of other kits available but they're not a patch on the Vintage Model Works version.
    Robbob.
