Wow! That is an amazing build! The only thing I might change is to have the coxswain wear the basic dungaree uniform. Crackerjacks were for shore duty or ceremonial occasions. It doesn't take anything away from your project though! Well done!

Nice work, cheers

I dreamed of making one of those a few years back. When you are down the coast next, don't forget to take it with you for a realistic photo shoot Wink bounce

Good photo, I think you used a couple of empty Humbrol paint pots in the construction, near the ramp, one each side and near the control/driving platform? Or is it just my pareidolia Cool
