Title: MGB 81
Post by: deadbeat on March 06, 2012, 02:48:22 PM
As some of you may know MGB 81 a British Power Boat MGB from WWII is on show at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth. Until recently she had no armament. Last week I saw her with a 'replica' gun as shown in the attached photos. Earlier in the week it was not covered up, but when I went back with my camera it was, Murphy's law.

It is a fantastic looking craft. The paint scheme inspired my colour scheme for my Slalome rebuild.
