This is my 1/18 RTR PBR MKII Proboat Alpha.
I have been modifying the boat, with 1/18 figures and fitting and it's still a work in progress.
More on the ins and outs later :thumbup: :wave: * FIGURES FROM ebay USA*

The spektrum 2 channel receiver, was replaced with spektrum 4 channel receiver. this allowed me, to run the lights, sound card and turret rotation from my DX4c. ;)
I have moved the receiver, to the bridge area to increase the 2.4 ghz performance. :thumbup:

The area in side the bridge with the electrics in place.

I was impressed with your PBR accessories. I'm hoping to do the same. Where did you find your anchor, or did you make it?

Hi Harry Serpent. I just ordered a 1/18 PBR, and I'm wondering where you found all the amazing accessories to go with it.

Harry: That's effective work! :clap: The various accessories and signs you added to the PBR sure capture the irony felt by many young men sent to Vietnam. As happens for even me, a few feelings of anxiety, confusion, sympathy, and whatnot more came back for a second--and I was not even there! Even if you weren't there, I'd bet you have memories of the time.
Is that really 1/18 or is it the 1/16 RTR version (with your modifications) first sold about, what 5 or 6 years ago?

Hi Mr Harry.
Very nice.
I scratch built 1 at 1/16 scale in about 2005, still have it, then built a 1/16 PCF and thought might as well have the whole set so built a 1/16 scale Bell SK5 assault hovercraft that was used with great effect upon the plain of Reeds area, frightened the VC to death as they thought it was a Dragon.
A couple of pics of my PBR MK2.
I never think of showing some of my other stuff i have made on here, but will post some pics if anyone is interested on a separate thread.

Sure, Sub: there must be some appropriate section for you to "show off" (hint hint) your other projects. By the way, where did you get those 1/16 Vietnam figures?

Hi Herr Dr.
:thumbup:
The figures are 120mm Verlinden productions resin figures, they come in pieces and you make them up and paint them.
Unfortunately no longer manufactured and are now VERY expensive.
Regards.

Thank you, Sub. Ah, I thought they might be Verlinden castings. Although Verlinden figures are readily available here in the US, those no longer being cast are, just as you say, even more expensive.
