Hi Robert
If you aren't luckily finding one in UK, there are a untouched kit available in Denmark ( Not mine ) https://www.rcgalleri.dk/baad-drumbeat-of-devon/id-181000
I know that the paper documentation is not there as I have provided him with the digital ones that he mention, the seller is 25km from my location so if you need a optional inspection I'm happy to do so. (I have no gain in this what so ever)

And yes I have a Drumbeat of Devon my self.

Man, I wished Id never have sold my Drumbeat, lovely boat. Oh well.
There's been two Drumbeats on Fleabay recently. One, an unstarted kit went for 290 plus 12 p&p. 22 bids it had. Another was a part built to superstructure level. Buyer might have been greedy seeing the unbuilt kit go for near 300 because they listed several times but pulled it when it didnt get over 150.

As far as I can see it's still for sale https://www.rcgalleri.dk/baad-drumbeat-of-devon/id-181000    but I can see that there are kit's available closer to you, which makes it easier for you.
