I love watching you build these. You need to do a couple of period tanks to go with the boat in the water beside the temple.

Okay then, you've got my attention now.
Nice variation on the base model. Would definitely look the part with the temple frontage.
A+ for creativity sir.

Awesome work as usual Maarten. Are your measurements from schematics or just done visually? I'm guessing the roofs were fabricated in theatre or by the military rather than coming from the factory giving you a little bit of freedom?

Thanks grover.
I got my measuremnts from looking at pictures and made my own version .

The where Locally fabricated in Vietnam,

The French army bought hundreds of LCVP's from the Philippines government.
Some versions had a German 3cm MG (single gun) on a drilling mount.

That's pretty neat work there Maarten. I'm liking what I am seeing.

The dullness of these boats we usually see in black and white images has never really aroused my interest but your model is really bringing some life into the type.

That is looking great! What do you use for the scratch building? what plastic?

Wow, I didn't realise Milliput could be rolled out like pastry. That might be a practicable option for canvas coverings on 1-72 transports.

Thanks for posting, it looks really good.

It can ,use a lot of talcum powder ''if you want it really thin'' so it won't stick when you roll it flat.

I use this for rolling milliput and clay
It can roll it paper thin or a couple of mm in thickness and it does it evenly.

And it wont stick to the rollers ? or you still use talcumpowder ?

I made the mistake of not using talc for one of the things I was rolling out, worked fine for Magic Sculpt but one time I used Milliput without talc and I had to strip the whole thing down and polish off the rollers, it's still not quite right to this day. But other than that it works like magic, you either need to use Talc or lots of water depending on what material you are using.

What can one say ...?
Such interesting, skillful and inspiring work ...
Those 'curtains' look so real ... which in a way they are ...
I'm loving this.

Agreed. I was wondering how the curtains would paint up. They look Mint.
