Coast Guard R5D in 1/144 Scale Minicraft Kit
This is my 1/144 Minicraft R5D which was used by the Coast Guard from 1945 through 1962.
This was built straight from the box. It went together very nicely with very little fit problems. The model was painted with Model Master Enamels and the kit decals were used. The nose has to be weighted so it doesn't sit on it's tail.
