Title: Deans Marine Dogboat.
Post by: Scribe on September 10, 2011, 05:49:41 pm
This is my son's build of the Deans marine kit.....with much more detailing added! Only the hull has been painted as yet, and, as can be seen the deck is not the supplied plastic one as previous experience has shown that it tends to warp in the sun, so he made it from treated balsa, which is what he had to do with the Narvik class from Deans......more to follow.

A couple are Deans Marine 1/24th but most are Tamiya Racing Pit Crew figures, heavily modified, helmets and sweaters are all hand made.....
