Here is what I am up to... Took a 1/32 Lindberg PT boat. Purchased at a yard sale. Just the hull. Sectioned about 1 inch out of the middle from stem to stern, and cut off the bow. Bingo! a landing craft shape. Much sawing and glueing. Added a lot of evergreen shapes and a Tamiya gear box at the rear under the superstructure. Geared the gear box to it's lowest setting and attached two wheels fron a RC plane, Just the rims, which made a great spool for rasing and lowering the landing ramp. Fishing line through plastic straws to the ramp. (no binding). Full up and full down takes about 8 seconds. Just right. This is just the basic shape and I still have a lot to add and paint. I am thinking Riverene, brown water Navy.

This could be fun. Oh, I added my tank guy with the pointy finger for a scale reference. Aren't you glad I didn't add the guy looking through the binoculars!!

What do ya think??

Field Artillery brings dignity to what otherwise might be merely a vulgar brawl.

That is freakin' awesome!!!!

Now I just wish I could find some 1/48 scale hulls to do the same thing for my brown water navy...

I'll be watching this one closely! Great work so far...
