None are available as far as I'm aware.
I have a sirmar kit of the Hunt class, where did you get the group 3 drawings from?
are you building your own guns for it?

I got the Type 3 kit from Sirmar but due to the fact there is no commercially available drawings have decided to
make it a Type 2 version. The Guns were pretty poor in the kit to be honest and as I need an extra one, I intend to build my own....
I managed to get a few drawings from various sources.
