Hi all does anybody recognise this old model l have been given she,s in good nick but needs a serious update. the chap who gave it to me said the model belonged to his grand father and is at least 40 years old ( l can believe it the speed controller looked like a clock face with lots of wires comming from it.) She,s 24 ins long and 10 ins wide. been kept in a dry loft so some of the joints have come apart.
She looks to me like a scratch built project on the lines of Fairey Huntsman/Swordfish although from some angles has the look of an early Broads cruiser. Whatever with some TLC I am sure she will both look and sail well. The Fairey designs were very popular craft in fact still are and the designs were copied a lot 'back in the day' Good luck and please post some pictures when you have completed her. Regards Chris G
