Tamiya 1/35th PBR
April 16, 2013 in Ships
Manufactured by a Seattle-based company called Modutec, it was specifically designed as a Patrol Boat, River (Pibber) for the armed forces during the Vietnam conflict. Powered by two V-6 engines and propelled via “water-jet”, it used only 2 feet of draft.
This was a relatively easy build as ships go, and despite not being a “ship guy”, it took me less than a week to complete.
I really suck at figure painting, so the four-man crew is on shore leave.
