Some of you may know Kendalls Fine Art in Cowes. They have a private view and drinks reception on Friday 9 August.
What they are displaying is a fine picture, oil on board, framed H640mm x W880mm. And the picture is entitled “Fairey Huntsman outrunning a Squall”.
Looks a great picture...quite something for a 31 owner.

Well, no forum posts but several comments from our avid forum watchers...
One member thought it artistic licence that the artist had captured a Swordsman hull with a H31 top. This was on the basis of the high chines akin to a Swordsman.
Another member acknowledged the slightly high chines but noted that the H31 is the only Fairey with a hull rubber.
I know there’s a few people out there who will put the record straight!
I thought it rather a good painting, and if I had a H31 and some wall space...
