huntsman plan by Black Dog Jack Petty Officer   Posted: 5 months ago
Now you mention it, I might have got carried away there! I now think I must have sent off for the plans after reading the two articles. Apologies guys. (Sulks and shuffles off, head down).

huntsman plan by Black Dog Jack Petty Officer   Posted: 5 months ago
Model Boats magazine January 2016 ncluded a free plan of a Huntsman 31 complete with photos and a step by step build guide. Unfortunately the model is 24". I also wanted a bigger model so I redrew the plan double size. It wasn't too difficult and only took a couple of evenings with a some lining paper from B&Q and a calculator and voila! At the moment I am planking the roof of the cabins and trying to decide between a brushless motor and an old Weston rare earth brushed motor I used to use for fast electrics. The article in MB also ran into February 2016 where all the fiddly finishing bits were described, also with many photos. I expect one can obtain back issues from their web site. Anyone interested in Huntsmen should get these two issues for the detail alone.

Warning by Black Dog Jack Petty Officer   Posted: 6 months ago
My Dad was a "real" woodworker, you know, with chisels and mallets and spokeshaves, and stuff. He always insisted that you should never try to catch things falling of the bench in case it was a chisel or a Stanley knife. I never had the opportunity to stab myself in the foot though, but I did trip over the odd cabinet trying to get out of the way.
