This is absolutely stunning. I have a huge fascination for small military boats like this, and you've done a superb job with this one. Makes me want to attempt something similar myself at some point; if only space wasn't an issue!
Loved watching it built up from start to finish, and the end result is just beautiful.

Great work :thumbsup: That boat got some serious firepower! Should have name it the "Attitude Adjuster"!

Thanks, Steven! Given the quality of your builds, that's a major compliment.



I keep seeing this thing in a scene similar to the AirCav scene from "Apocalypse Now"; hammering full-tilt towards a VC supply village with all guns blazing & Russell Morris' song (The Real Thing) blaring out of a couple of big speakers.

And there was me thinking you had Faith No More in mind...

The Parts Box do 1/24 resin speaker cones which would make for nice big units in 1/35.  Ideal for your mental image.

Already have the dio in my head for this - plus my PBR 31 Mk.II & a scale-o-rama'd (1/72-to-1/35) Airfix Vosper MTB. :thumbsup:

I've just seen this up close in all it's rugged beauty at the South Australian Scale Model Expo. Looks awesome, and knowing the work the went into it makes it all the more impressive.

Pity I didn't know who to say "Hi!" to, as I was there all weekend.

I just reviewed the pics again ( funny, back on Aug. 7th I was smart enough to know I'd like to see them again when my head cleared, but then forgot all about that  :banghead: ) Great job. I really like the look of this boat. Defo one for the memory bank. Love the weaponry....sure wouldn't want to mess with this thing as it floated past.
