I would like to get a set of these drawings, as I do like the Swordsman design.  May even try to do the one from the Bond movie.

Cheers,

Dave

This is the best Plan I have seen , if you want a smaller boat do what I did and go to my local plans shop and get them reduced by the amount you want, I think it is the most accurate plan available, if you want a huntress you just trim the overall huntsman by chopping the rear, read the full size boats info http://www.faireyownersclub.co.uk/default.asp?content=boats&type=huntress

the best plan I think

Have a look at the build of the Huntsman

hi ya there, what we will have to do is come up with another plan for a different model - this one seems to be pretty popular, but the plan now seems difficult to sources apart from paying over the top on ebay

looking good - mate.

Ive been looking at the plan for an easy build pilot boat from My Hobbies Store Plans - or it may have been Marine Modelling plans.......another plan for beginners maybe....

would definitely be interested in something similar to the lasro sprite been wanting the model for ages but cant justify 60 quid for the kit just like the look of it

also a quick question haw did you attach the cockpit wind screen to the wood

I stuck it with flour and water....nay nay and thrice nay

Really. First of all I attempted to glue the acrylic sheet with superglue, but did it bond, IT DID NOT.   Anyhow, I ended up using UHU, glue contact adhesive which is still, to this day, sticking very well

re windscreen , although my fairey huntsmen are larger at 1/12th scale , ive warmed up my screen halves oveer a heated peice of pre shaped steel , then shaped the plastic over the steel , removing it and holding it to the required shape , having a longer lower sides than normal allows me to screw them into the inner faces of the cockpit ! to join the two halves of screen ive used a 2" long section of brass channel 1/4" x 1/8" which has been cut , angled in the centre and resoldered , then the screen joints are glued to both the top and bottom of the screen .

gwa84 hi there

Just having a look at the actual plans for the build regarding the windscreen - and it has just jogged my memory - the windscreen has tabs on the edge of it which actually locate and slots which one has to cut in the cabin roof/cabin sides to which these tabs locate and then glue.  I seem to recall making these tabs slightly 'longer' and also making the windscreen in 2 halves - split down the centre line & I used the mast in the centre of the windscreen as a joining point.  Doing it this way I found made it a lot easier for assembly.

Hope this is of some help.

mine hasnt got anything down through the cabin roof , a small fillet of car body filler has been used to blend the screen into the roof line ! the central join is also masked by my walnut mast that is glued onto the screen joiners top & bottom with epoxy glue , the wire for the mast light goes through the small gap in the screen and down into the forward cabin .

It's nice to have a back-up longbuild - thank you for that.

We did have a backup plan in motion which we can stop now thanks to the new supply  :-))

Plans are still going ahead for a new beginners build of a different boat - as has been requested.
