Re-scaling a life boat. From 1/48 to G scale
I needed a better looking lifeboat for my Bristol Bay trawler (see my earlier posts) and the hull shape had to be just right for my purpose. That's when I happened upon a Glencoe U.S. Coast Guard rescue boat at a really nice price. I used a few of the original pieces cut down a bit and a bit of Evergreen plastic stock. The ores were a bit of a challenge. But it was a lot of fun.
This is a three to four man boat with a one cylinder diesel engine.
I hope you like my bit of maritime madness..
