Fairey Huntsman 31

Fairey Huntsman 31

Fairey Huntsman 31: This is a two sheet plan for the classic Fairey 1960's powerboat drawn to a scale of 1:16 and designed by David Milbourn as a radio controlled, brushless motor driven, highly detailed performance model. A fully illustrated supporting article was published in the Model Boats 2016 January and February issues.

This project is recommended for those with some experience of building a wooden-hulled model using these highly detailed and comprehensive CAD drawn plans. Model length at 1:16 scale is 24 inches (590mm).

This issue we have the second part of the Fairey Huntsman full-build article, the plan being featured in the recent January 2015 issue and available from MyHobbyStore. We are pleased to include this month, instead of the usual Ship Gallery, a Photo Feature Gallery for a Lesro Sportsman, this r/c model having been started by Les' Rowell the designer just before his untimely death in 1992, and now completed by his grandson John Long 23 years later, it having languished in a loft during the intervening years.

Included in this issue are full photographic reports from the 2015 International Model Boat Show held at Leamington Spa this last November and Scale Model World organised by the International Plastic Modellers Society at Telford at the same time. This latter event has much of interest to model boating enthusiasts, not least because of the huge and fantastically detailed 1:200 scale Trumpeter plastic kits of famous warships, including HMS Nelson and soon to be released HMS Hood, models that readily lend themselves to radio control conversion and that were on display or being previewed.

Apart from this, we have the usual regulars including a look by John Parker at the once well-known Marinecraft kits marketed by Model Aerodrome Ltd, once a leading UK chain of model shops. So together with the usual regular columns, I hope there is something here for everyone in these pages

About Us

The Model Dockyard has been successfully catering to the needs of the scale ship modeller since 1987. We were the first UK mail order only business in the UK solely specialising in Scale Model ships and related items and thinking about it, we probably still are. Because of this specialisation, you won't find our shelves cluttered up with model aircraft, railways, TOYS or cars.

'Jack of all trades - Master of none' springs to mind!

Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. Stock levels are shown next to that item. Any item showing as having zero stock, will have a link to a page giving you an indication of the supply situation for that item or range.

After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

All prices are shown in pounds sterling and we only charge in Pounds Sterling. If you are paying by a credit or debit card, your card company will convert the Pounds Sterling transaction into your own currency at a rate prevailing at the time. As a guide, we also show our prices in US Dollars, but please note this is just a guide.

We accept Visa and MasterCard credit /debit cards; emailed payment by Paypal; or by a direct funds transfer to our bank. We are unable accept American Express or Diners cards. We do not charge your credit/ debit card until the order is ready to ship. Back ordered items are not charged until they are ready to be shipped.

Once you have completed your order you will receive an onscreen confirmation of order, as well as an email if you supplied a valid email address. This is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
