For release at Coventry this weekend I have a very special version of my Tandem Hunter, dedicated to the memory of Mike McEvoy. As anyone who saw the SIG stand at Telford in recent years you will have noticed Mike's dozen or so Tandem Hunter builds. Some time back I had the idea to produce a fourth version of the set, fitted with a camera nose, this is pure What-If as no such version was proposed for a two seater, but I know Mike would have embraced it! I had hoped to bring this to SMW last November to show it to him but covid changed my plans, and when I heard of Mike's death some two weeks later I lost all enthusiasm to complete it, that is until now.

The set consists of the All Weather tandem P.1130 conversion parts, with the addition of a clear cast camera equipped nose section to replace a grey resin part. This means you will have a spare AW nose should you want to use it on one of your trainer sets already in the stash.

This will be a very limited release, I will have ten sets with me, and another ten or so to go on sale via my website in the next week or so. Price for the conversion set is £20.00. 

Thanks, Colin

I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

If there are any still left, please put me down for one.

No problem, I have put one aside for you.

Thanks,

Based on the P.1130 so side-by-side or are you talking about that "exta" part you sent me some time ago? If the former then I would be interested in one, if the latter then I already have one.

For some reason - probably alcohol - I read that as Special Tantrum  Hunter...
