Vic Smeed 42" Huntsman
« on: September 11, 2011, 07:35:07 AM »

 :-)Hi just a quick update on the fwd cabin on my Hunstman is progressing

/the leftover teak from the decking came in handy for all the trim

The vinyl cussions should finish it off quite well I think O0

so, Its a mask off and ready to paint the cabin sides before I get too far ahead :}

Thanks Peter I just wanted to try an authentic aproach to the cabin although it might get a wee bit tight aft for all the electrics etc %%

if you Google  " Huntsman 28 sales"  you will find plenty of internal pictures if you want any.

what batteries are you using ? and as has been said there is plenty of room for radio gear i got a valve set in one years ago with a gannet 15 cc.

I found Citroen admiral blue the closest match

 :-)Hi the windows are made from 2mm Ally plate, i stuck two pieces together with double sided tape and cut them out in pairs so I had an inner and outer and 3mm perspex encased between the two. The widows were then just touched with a small drill to give the rivet head appearance :-))
