    ๐Ÿ“ Mystery boat

    You don't give the length but from memory it looks rather like the Frog patrol Launch designed to take the Frog 3.49 marine diesel engine. If this is the case it was a freelance design so you could paint it any pseudo-military colour scheme, but ideally something RAFish. I hope this is of some help.

    If you think swannee is funny you should hear some of the other names I have been called [50 years in the construction industry].

    Am I missing something here, what's with all the silly titles. Admirals, Captains and three band stokers etc.You are all boat modellers. I also build model aircraft does that make an Air-Vice marshal or a Wing Commander if I own more than one model. As for getting up-tight if your title has been changed, then I think you need to get a life.Having got that off my chest I would like to say there are some magnificent models displayed on this site.

    I was so impressed by all the posts the I trotted off to my local store and bought one. Construction is pretty good and the performance is more than adequate. Well spotted that man.๐Ÿ˜Š

    Cenbeth, I've had very mixed results using cyno on brass even when roughening the surface.
    Davem, Thanks for the pics, thats a good looking model.

    I have been building this boat on and off for years, I know It's only semi-scale but It Is an attractive model none the less. My problem Is building the lattice mast structure. I was thinking of soldering It from from brass strip and angle (I can use a soldering Iron) with high and low temp solder to simplify construction. As almost everyone on this site Is more experienced than me, I wondered If anyone else has a better Idea.
    P.S.
    I love the blog on HMS Diamond, what a beauty.

    ๐Ÿ“ Huntsman refurb

    I know that I'm a bit late in commenting but better late than never. Just had to say what a beautiful boat you ended up with. I built Swordsman from the ModelMaker plan (anyone remember the ModelMaker ?) when it was published back in the distant past. The Huntsman/Swordsman boats have among the most beautiful powerboats ever designed.
    Pete.
