Varnish by rolfman2000 Admiral   Posted: 3 days ago
A friend of mine imports what I believe to the finest varnish ever made. http://www.letonkinoisvarnish.uk They sell it online, and they did have a stand at Warwick a few years ago. Many folk in the classic car and boat trade swear by it. I have a tin in the garage awaiting use on my 46" Huntsman deck after re-planking. Hope that helps someone, cheers, Dave W 😊

Huntsman 34 "John" by Novagsi0 Lieutenant   Posted: 5 days ago
First run on the water, was not pushing it just checking temps and drive. The batteries were at about 25% down on top speed when I decided to make a video. The Tornado 850 motor and 60A speed controller seem well suited to the job.

Hi Andy, i have the Huntsman with a torpedo 850 which gives it a realistic speed,cuts through the water nicely.. good luck with the build

Doug is right. It could be a nice little earner for you both. I would love a bow fender for my 46" Huntsman. One the same as yours would be fine. Your boat continues to impress. Hope we can see her on the water soon. Cheers, Dave W 😊

Fittings and finishing by Novagsi0 Lieutenant   Posted: 10 days ago
Have been making steady progress on the Huntsman. Few additional fitting I acquired and me mom has been busy knitting boat fenders front and for the sides. Amazing she can almost knit one as faster than I can chamfer a cork in the lathe to fill it with. (pictures attached). I'm not sure the masking tape she attached them will cope with the speed and the wet. I guess I need to secure then with some brass cleats or posts. My next Job. Also attached the windscreen not as much trouble as I thought. Radio is in and the Torpedo 850 motor installed.

No dont have any shet material . We now do a lot of 3d printed stuff plus can make parts to your size and design.

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 ?

Hi Dave, couldn't find a screen I'm afraid🤔 But maybe a substitute ... 😉 A positive snip at 52.95 😲 But then - gold frames!

Huntsman fittings kit. by rolfman2000 Admiral   Posted: 17 days ago
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 😊

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.

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

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. http://reademodels.com 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.

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. Canabus

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.
