Some images of a conversion to the old Revell UDT Boat. If I have figured out how the new system works.

Worked just fine :smiley:

looks good - what scale is it?

He did a great job converting it from the 1/35 Revell (old Monogram) 1/35 UDT boat.

Hi folks, Thanks for the comments and looking in. The Revell kit is supposed to be 1/35 scale, but the hull is 4ft short, so I extended the length of the boat and fashioned a new bow. I originally bought the kit as a donor kit for an RN LCPL I built but soon realised that not much of it was transferable. I only used the engine, propeller and side strips, so that left me with much of the original kit to find a use for. Then I came across some training footage of salvage boats and that gave me the idea.

Super work, Al - I’m impressed! Solid modeling indeed. I especially like the realistic hawsers, flemished line, and those beautifully crafted bumpers. Top work!

Thanks for your kind comments Tim. It was an interesting project as I hadn’t seen that style before until I came across the old training film.
