Dave, how do you fancy making a kit of this absolute stunner that I saw in the Albert Dock in Liverpool this afternoon...………..i'd certainly buy one...…….

I only had my phone, but the boat is a real beauty

Maybe so, Neil - but I don't choose the models for the kits.
I remember when we bought out the Stampe SV4B 1/4 scale biplane. Some bloke said that we should do a 1/4 scale DH Dragon Rapide next - "Everybody will want one!" he enthused. Note that the wingspan of this beast would be 13.5 ft.
I told him that there would probably be only one person interested and even that bloke would pale when he saw the price.
So yes, it is pretty - and no, it wouldn't get a second look back at HQ.

As a post-script, Ripmax turned down the Huntsman as being "too old-fashioned".

Dave..could you tell me please, before I start soldering plugs onto an old sanwa servo to even see if it works..

a] is a sanwa servo compatible with hitec or futaba transmitters, and 

b] all wires on the servo are black except one which has a white stripe running down it...…………

could you please tell me which the black and white one equates to on a modern servo...……..I am trying to find a smaller, but not mini servo to go under the well deck on a gaff rigged yawl that I bought on eBay a few months ago. 

cheers, mate.

Here you go, mate. Sanwa = Airtronics

Scroll down to the 5th reply for a neat little piccie. The wire with the white stripe is the signal. You need to swap the other two around so that the positive is in the centre. Will be fine with modern gear but you'll probably need to refit the output disc to re-centre it.
