Torpedo Boat ?
« on: September 25, 2012, 02:12:50 pm »

I have been given a Torpedo boat ? M106 is on it, does that help you tell me what type of boat it is, at the mo I have a Hull and part stripped superstructure and a bag of bits.
Does the Flag help?.

It looks like a Royal Navy "Perkasa" patrol boat.  It would help if you gave the scale of the model or it's length.

Hi TailUK,

It is just under 48" long.

Given the said length of 48" that makes your model 1:24th scale or 1/2" to the foot.  Actually it's a wee bit on the short side. but not so far out it wouldn't make a nice model

Battlecraft models, amongst others,  make 1:24th scale fitting for Perkasa,  check the website and you can get a good idea of what the weapons and deck fitting should be like.

 Hi len.
           Its the bog standard perkasa model but you can turn it into various other things. A brave class, cutlass sabre, or søløven-class.

I can vouch for hattlecrafts: I live in Canada, and I've always received  great pieces at very reasonable prices from them. The parts Detail is superb, and Custom Service is Outstanding!!  :-))
