Hello hopefully someone can help. Whilst browsing I happen to come across a boat fittings kit especially for the Fairy huntsman 34". I do remember it consisted of various plastic parts and was a bit on the pricey side. However I cannot find again who supplied the kit, has anyone else come across it. it was on a site following what other people bought as well as purchasing the Huntsman kit its self.

Hi Novagsio

The only place that my help you out is Westbourne model.co.uk, but, they sell to full kit.
May sell the fittings kit.
The original handrails from my Precedent fibreglass hull are total rubbish, but, I only got with my second hand unfinished boat the air scoops.
So I plan on making the hand bow rail and windscreen.
My boat is in the BUILD BLOGS on the site.

Hi Novagsio
Do tread carefully if you intend to use Westbourne as there has been posts on this and other sites regarding their poor service level and lack of advertised stock.

Canabus has a build blog mdlbt.com/31424

Not sure exactly what fittings you require but Reade Models may be able to help as they supported fittings for many of the kits produced alongside the Precedent range.

If you are looking for the window frames then you may need to fabricate from liteply, or if you have a 3D printer source have some fabricated.


Live long and prosper

Hi Novagsio
Did a bit more research. SLEC inherited the original kit and a quick search revealed
http://www.slecuk.com/balsa-wood/Fairey-Huntsman-Fitting-Set...

No window frames but liteply or 3D would be my choice.

Happy building


Live long and prosper

yep that's the one I was looking at !!!! still undecided if it really work £18 but I wanted to see what you get again. So I could price single items up or just scratch build the easy bits and just but the white metal castings. Many thanks again all.

I think you'll find that the spec gunman is only 23" long, unlike yours which is e4". So the associated fittings set would be out of scale for yours, sadly. I, myself have a 34" and a 46" Huntsman, but need the wrap around windscreen for the driving position. So far, i have been unsuccessful in sourcing either of them to replace my missing ones ☹ Not sure if anyone here has one i could maybe copy the shape off ? Best of luck in your search for fittings Novagsi0, cheers, Dave W 😊

Thanks Doug. The more bling, the better 😂

Mastman, I will be going on your site to find fittings for mine as well. You don't have sheets of material for a curved windscreen by chance ?
