    Hi Phil,
    Thats some interesting video of three different Huntsman craft - it is obviously a popular model with your club members!
    I am working on a couple of Swordsman and a 34" Huntsman 31 at the moment, but I want to try to capture the shape of the small Huntsman model a little better (if I can) as the 34" model superstructure looks a little tall and the "dome" shaped roof that gives it does not look right either so I want to see if I can make it look more like the full size craft...and maybe convert to to a Huntsman Sport !
    Bob.

    "Fairey Huntsman"
    Here are three variations from BMBC members of the popular "Huntsman".

    Fairey Huntsman / Fairey Huntsman 28 / Fairey Huntsman 31: The design of the Huntsman and its smaller sister, the Huntress were the inspiration of Ray Hunt and designed by Alan Burnard. (Ref from Wikipedia)

    Some details of Thor. by Buxton Model Boat Club Member Dean Ratcliffe.

    Thor is a freelance design of a multicat vessel. These rather unusual ships are real workhorses, designed as a work platform, often with a hiab crane. The square hull gives a large flat deck, with plenty of open space for a work area or for deck cargo. The design also enables the vessel to be used as a tugboat, either pushing or towing and are often equipped with large deck winches and strong points for this purpose. A true Swiss army knife of the sea, able to adapt to most roles, some even have additional internal fuel tanks for refuelling other vessels. Despite their size and ungainly shape, they are surprisingly agile and seaworthy ships, have a look at Youtube.
    Thor was my first scratch built model, so probably not one of my better ones, but has proven to be reliable, sails well for a box, and serves well as a rescue boat. Almost all the construction materials are recycled/upcycled, and is a very simple construction and quick to build. A single, former drill motor powers a single propeller, and is steered by a single rudder, and despite the limited controls and boxy hull, she will turn in her own length, however due to the tall wheelhouse, she does get pushed around by the wind a little, so can make manoeuvring "interesting". The deck cargo is just for interest and serves no other purpose, due to the offset wheelhouse, I had to add extra ballast on the starboard side as
    a counter balance, this was just some steel rod I had, which is stuck inside the hull with some silicon sealer.

    Agreed Phil, You just beat me to it!πŸ‘
    So I've cleaned things up a bit.
    There is already a separate 'Lurgy' Thread covering that other 'ubiquitous' subject!
    Cheers, Doug 😎
