Another of those Hendy and Harbers has come out of the woodwork ;well acutally this is the fifth one we've had on the blog - they're just becoming so common ! If only two hundred were made then seeing five isn't bad going. This one was sent in by Robin, who's had it for many a year. Its a 7 ft diamond tail, shaped by the infamous Buttercup ,Australian lifeguard who worked Fistral beach and did some guest shaping for H&H. Made around 1971, looks in some ways quite a modern template, especially the front half. Diamond tails didn't last for long and were soon overtaken by swallows around '73 and classic pins. This one has a replacement fin. Cheers to Robin.

Looks like a bit of an s-deck, tons of volume towards the rear
