    Thanks Rowen ๐Ÿ‘
    I'll be popping up now and again, when I see something that I like and find intriguing, or I know I can help with a query.
    In the meantime I've discovered a 'backdoor' to the site which enables me to view posted photos in super size and resolution and without the 'Login or register ...' banner - without logging in!!๐Ÿ˜‰ (Don't tell Stephen ๐Ÿ™Š)

    Since I was relieved from my moderator duties I feel like I've got my life back ๐Ÿ˜€
    Suddenly there's more time to do 'other stuff'.
    BTW Seems I was the only one who did NOT volunteer to become a moderator!
    I was suddenly shanghaied overnight ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Doug, Hi Chris!
    Thanks for the welcome request! Well, despite English, I almost feel at home
    @ Chris:
    This is a 1: 8 scale / 47" model with English instructions! Now I'll use it to polish up my English too! ๐Ÿ˜
    Tuesday, August 31th, I'll pick up my Huntsman package. I am as happy as a little child! Yeah!
    You will hear from me and thanks again for your tips, dear Doug!
    see you then, your Mike

    Hi Mike and welcome.

    As it's an inheritance I'm guessing it's a Precedent kit? If so what size is it, 34" (scale 1:11) or 47" (1:8)?

    Have you got the build instructions as they are a fairly straightforward build?

    I'm building one based on the Precedent design but scratch building it as I'm building it at a scale of 1:12 to match my other Fairey builds.

    Hello everyone,
    My name is Mike from Switzerland. As a pensioner, I found my old hobby again. I have a small handicap. . . my english isn`t perfect, but i hope you understand my typing! ๐Ÿ˜Š
    OK, Here is my request to all of you . . .
    I received a complete kit of the Huntsman 31 from an inheritance and now I want to assemble it. Who has already gained experience with it? Can someone help me??
    Would be very grateful to you. Would you have time for my request, maybe even photos?
    Thank you in advance, best regards
    Recruit Mike
