Fairey Huntsman - Dimensions & scale
« on: April 02, 2022, 03:08:13 am »

 ok2 Hi all . I have a Fairey Huntsman model (the Cabin aft style ) only recently received from an estate sale. It is approx 1190mm oa which to me makes it about 1:8 scale as I understand the original was 9470 oa.I am wanting to add some figures but 1:8 scale makes them like 220 mm high which look far too big when cut out of paper and put in place. So I am questioning whether the bridge deck of the model is too high. As I do not have plans I cannot check it out. To lower the deck would be a straight forward task but I still the figure out of paper would loom too large. So TWO questions can anybody give me the correct dimension for the bridge deck floor with respect to the main deck OR any available model figure that would look right.Many thanksRaynor J
