Scratch building a landing ship medium in scale 1/35

Recommended Posts

For whatever reason, I see the photos with Mozilla Firefox (though loading very slowly), but not at all with Google Chrome :hmmm:

Stunning project, by the way!

I use Firefox too, and can see them fine. They load slowly because they're huge! And with multiple images per post/page, it takes a long time for the thread to load. My guess is that Chrome bails on it.

I love this!

Comparing the size of the 40 to the size of the raft, I find it hard to believe that this raft holds 25 peeps.  I'm not doubting your scaling, Rammsy, I'm just wondering how the Navy expected 25 men to be accommodated on something so small.

 

Great work.

Sincerely,

Mark

Mark    You sit on the rail / balsa wood part with feet towards the center. Or sit on rail and hang a leg into the water. The Navy rates the raft as keeping 25 men afloat. As men in the water folding on too! What is funny is a lot of boats care these to this day. We had one on our boat for awhile, Thirty years ago.
