Italeri Schnellboot
« on: April 26, 2009, 10:52:10 AM »

I waited quite some time for this model to arrive as I was very impressed with the Elco PTBoat from this manufacturer.
It was a delight to build and I hoped this model would be the same. And it was!
This model was built straight from the box without the addition of any aftermarket products.
The only change that I made was to make a wooden deck around the bridge area as the PE was without any definition...
was flat and unrealisic.
Also there were no depth charges supplied which left the aft deck naked so I used some old tank hubs and timber to make suitable
charges. The crew I used from some unmade models to give the model a little character.
It was a great model to build and I had fun weathering it as shown in the box art. The guns were a bit of a disapointment and I feel not
as good as those on the Elco PT Boat. Here area few photos.
