I had a few dealings with hydrafibre a few years ago because i came into possesion of an MRP hull of the 'gentry eagle' which came with some hydrafibre literature.I contacted the owner and got told i'd got a rip off hull copied from one of his and he wouldnt help me any further.Ive still got the hull if anyone can offer me any advice on fitting water jet drives and gear i do know of Kehrer (i hope i got the name right) but im a bit credit crunched.

Hi Martin,

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your Hydrafibe - PREDATOR, I wish I'd never sold it!

Both models were actually 1/64 scale, not 1/72. The Type 21, L believe, came out at 72", while the Leander was 70" long.
An old Admiralty imperial scale, used for test tank models etc, I am saying nothing %)

I've got a full set of Type 21 mouldings, plus some 1/64 scale fittings that are,  as far as I'm aware are as rare as hens teeth, I'll get round to building it.......someday.
