Anyone know of the guy who was selling plans for a hovercraft in the UK, I believe the name of the design was (Scorpion)? He had a website within the last couple of years and i can't find it now. Also, anyone know where a set of Challenger hovercraft plans can be bought or sold. I am collecting hovercraft plans and would like to add these to the collection. Thanks in advance...

I can't help with the scorpion?.

The Challenger has never been a set of plans as far as I know. The HCGB Constructors Guide is a set of instructions on how to build the Challenger though. The Constructors guide is available from here:

If I remember correctly our very own FanMan designed the Scorpion. I'm sure he'll be along shortly to confirm or correct.

If that doesn't work, try PMing him.

The planset preview I have on file looks like a craft with segmented skirts, a 900mm duct, a hair over 10 feet long and about 6 foot wide. It has two rounded rear corners (left and right) and a rounded bow. Like a Flying Fish or Scat. Sound like it?
