PACV arrives in country

I ordered a model of a US Navy PACV in 15mm from Tim at Gomi designs last week and it arrived today. And a nice beast she is too!

This is what was advertised at TMP "The PACV (Patrol Air Cushion Vehicle) was used to patrol the Mekong Delta and Plain of Reeds. This resin kit with high quality metal parts is of the earlier SRN5 version. It measures around 4.5 inches long, 3 inches wide, and stands around 1.5 inches tall when assembled." These pics from TMP too.

The parts are very detailed and crisply cast. The main hull is resin and all the fittings are lead. No crew is available yet but they are coming in the near future. Cost: £8.99 plus £2.50 for postage to Australia.

I'll post pics of mine when she is sea worthy!
