Sorry no pics of that model
Gentlemen !

As can be seen above from an earlier post, I had to sell the model ( the pic is of a real dustoff ).( I WISH I could build like that ! )

Amazing detail as always Jeff. I have just bought a set of plans for this boat. What you are doing will be a great help for the future build. Is the bender you used to form the wheel the one from Micro Mark? It seems to do a nice job.

Thanks Gravman,

Yes that is the Micro Mark, works pretty good wish it had some sort of a gripping action for the tubbing thou you kinda have to force it thru the grooves to get it going, but for the small stuff it works good, worth the cost!

Hey the plans you got are they for a scratch build with the hull?

Jeff, yes they show hull lines and all you would need to build one of these boats. Three sheets. They show a 50 cal mounted on the stern. There are 4 photos on the plans too. One shows a large light mounted to the starboard side of the forward turret. I guess this was used to throw some light on the target. If you would like I can mail these to you for this build and when you are finished just send them back.
