    Rowen,
    I have sent my files twice, the last time in multiple message format. Could they be hiding in your Spam folder?

    Have done that several times and it is quite satisfying.
    Prefer to use GF though for the faster boats as it is more robust.
    Keep in touch as an interested in how you get along.
    What Powertrain have you chosen and what batteries?

    I did it the hard way using the plan. All went well until right at the end of skinning a bump appeared. Ever mind pressed it down hard and glued a bit of ply inside. Covered it in glass cloth and a water based resin. It was hard work.
    Haven’t started on the Deans 4.5 in gun yet. Bruce

    Hi Bruce, that is interesting and reassuring!
    Once bought a Deans product and was not entirely satisfied. Sounds as if this will be better, wil know in about a week when it arrives.
    I could not find a kit for the 4.5" Cannon fitted to some Darks. Do not confuse with the usual 4.5" gun fitted to larger vessels. Very different.
    RN in Munich sent some scans and am working on it. Not difficult if you break it down into sections. Am making it from bits of scrap so appeals to my Yorkshire Heritage!
    Assume you are building a 1: 24 Dark, where did you get your hull or are you building from scratch?
    I have ordered one from MTBHulls but think they are closed due to a lock-down.

    Hi, ref Deans Bofors kit I am on the same road and bought one. Very happy with it but remember it is a bit delicate. I have also got their 4.5 in gun kit to build. Main problem I have is getting the motors aligned up properly have used a tool but it is very fiddly little finger room in the hull.

    Cheers Bruce

    Rowen,
    It looks that Doug has come thru for you. I was going to scan the book today, but he beat me to it. Good for Doug! Should you still want any of the drawings from John and Al's book, please just shout.
