 Some of the Scandinavian navies still use camoflage, imagination with a Nordic touch perhaps.  I like it.

If you like it then keep it that way.
It's yours
If you are happy with it
Sail it and enjoy

This model was built by Paul Simpson of what was PS Ships.
It was a corvette/ patrol boat that he designed for some fun :-))

If they are the engines Paul put in, I'm Not Surprised it fly's around the lake..

Great looking Model. I remember Paul starting it but dis not realise he had finished it..

I must admit building a ship of your own imagination certainly means no one can tell you it is wrong.. :-)) :-))

Every bit helps, Stealth is great on Radar but this just makes it harder to Visually see if in range..

Hi Tim

I've removed your duplicated thread.

Ken


It's certainly a nice craft and does shift across the water.    ken
