Hey Christer!

A very unusual dio, and full of drama too!
Thanks for sharing it with us

Hi Roy,

Nice little scene. How was the kit to build? I saw it when it came out. Are the figures moulded into the dingy or separate items?

I thought it might be useful when I get to my ELCO boat as I intend to do mine when they were based in the channel.

Good work.

Hello,

Thanks for the feed back.

It was an easy kit to build, lovley to paint.

The lower bodies of the figures are moulded into the dingy. The torsos and arms are separate. Easy to assembly, no problems there.

I changed the head on the guy , that release the pidgeon, to a Hornet head.

Cheers,
Christer
