Latvian Navy - Skrunda
« on: May 11, 2012, 05:39:54 pm »

I think this might make a nice subject. The Skrunda is a class of SWATH patrol vessels used by the Latvian Navy.
The main duties of the vessels include fisheries inspections, search and rescue, environmental protection, sovereignty
enforcement, and participation in NATO and EU operations acording to Wiki.

It's a pity I couldn't find better film on the water film - but the clips all reveal little details. The full Ali hull shots at the builders
are good. Skip over the boring bits. Anyone have anything to add - I'd like to see this one giving it some stick on the water.

That is a super boat. And, yes, it would be a fantastic model.
What are the fins on the submerged hulls for?

I don't know how it really works - we need someone who actually knows stuff. O0

Come on Dave! The hole point of forums is so that you can pretend to know stuff.  O0

Nooooooooooooo!!! because I always get caught out - better to be thick but enthusiastic O0
Same as I always say I am five years older than I am - then people say I look great for my age
...... I suspect they are still being kind {-)

Back to the Skrundra - I'm still looking for a proper clip at speed and turning.

It is a tempting build isn't it.
