Hi John,

The pics don't show it off to it's best - the superstructure just needs to be located properly into it's locking pins and a clean up - the rest is all superficial

Dimensions here - https://www.kehrer-modellbau.de/en/hulls/pibber/pibber - 280mm wide x 750mm long - whatever scale that works out to be

Sorry - it's not for sale unless someone offers me something I can't refuse...

Member tsenecal posted - "a 1/12 scale pibber would be 32" long..." under the pibber thread

This one is approx 30" so all but 1/12th scale

Some of the drives are cheap and flimsy in both construction and engineering.

The KMB jet drives @50 euro a piece are well built and engineered - as you would expect from a German product

John,

According to this site fullsize =32ft (384") - https://www.militaryfactory.com/ships/detail.asp?ship_id=PBR-Patrol-Boat-River

384/39=9.846 so scale would be 1/9.84 or rounded 1/10th

http://www.scalemodelersworld.com/online-scale-converter-tool.html

If I have this wrong I am sure someone will jump in and correct the maths....
