Patrol Boat River in 1/72 by Mach2

Recommended Posts

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes, again




Yep, I did it! I bought this Mach2-kit, kept it (and not tossed it in the bin), and even built it!


I have to say, it was a really pleasant project after all, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. Only real downside are that some more detailled parts like M60s or the relings are lacking a lot... I also found out during my build that this kit is a complete rip-off in 1/72 of the 1/35 PBR by Tamiya. Someone copied all the parts and made them smaller, tossed in some figures of the Esci figure-set "US GIs in Vietnam" and called it a day...


I made a quite extensive WIP, but in german only: http://modellboard.net/index.php?topic=60611.0


But I think the pictures in my WIP say mor ethan thousand (german) words.


A PBR with a Team of Special Forces closes in on the beach, to drop the men for a Recon-mission in the jungle:




No signs of enemy activity so far, but the crew is ready and keeps the weapons ready in all directions:








Looks like a "cold" landing-zone, though!




The team-leader maintains radio contact to the CAS-forces, just in case...:






Looks too quiet to be good. What´s waiting in the jungle?






The team is ready to start its mission in the jungle:






They still hesitate to leave the massive fire-power of the PBR behind.
