What a fabulous project  :-))

http://ebay.eu/2tF22JX

I've always loved the Huntsman ever since building the Veron version.

Hi all just noticed this.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Scratch-Built-Radio-Control-Model-Of-Deep-Sea-Tug-Boat-Zwarte-Zee-/302068462783?hash=item4654aef4bf:g:osYAAOSwxg5X1Am6

For sale at 600 and the seller says it is scratch built!  Very unlikely as I recognize the flat stanchions that are with the fittings of the Billings kit.  The build quality is not good.  All electrics taken out!  Not much of a bargain as there is another working one at 180. also on ebay.

The Bugsier 3 kit went for just under 80, quite a bargain.  Fittings kit can be expensive.

I hope the above post does not contravene the rules Martin, if it does mods please feel free to delete.
I have nothing to do with the sale, but I can let fellow mayhemers know anything they need to know regarding the model. I will not be the middleman on any deals, eBay has a contact the seller button.

It was a paid commission build too, I gave up and handed the kit back with my tail between my legs...  {:-{
I have lots of photos of the build if anyone's interested.

I wouldn't know where to start with those, martin..........they look horrendously complex. didn't they come as vac formed clear plastic in the kit.


I can see why you say what you do as to the standard of the kit.
