Are you going to whiff it or go OOB?
Looks interesting either way.

Nice kit choice.  One that can go OOB yet readily kitbashable civil or military and already 1/72. :smiley:

Good luck with your project!  That hull is not small, almost the same dimensions as the Italeri 1:35th scale ELCO 80.0' hull and quite impressive.  The little 'daughter' boat at the stern is also available as a separate kit from Revell Germany.

Hi all just thought I would show you what comes with this kit, got to say it's a lot of plastic for the money.












No flash and really nicely detailed, looks like a great kit.

You have the second release of that kit.  First release included a different 'daughter' boat for the docking well at the stern.  The second release has the rigid inflatable hull boat which I wish was available as a separate kit. :(
