Ahoy there.

I was wondering if any of you were interested in seeing my 1/32 scale Lindberg PT boat build and the 20 mm gun I made for it based on information given to me by members here.

I've modified a lot of the kit parts and scratch-built many others.

Here is the boat as it looked today during sea trials.

Here is the 20 mm as it appears now. As I was advised to do by members here, I removed the gun shield and I added the spent cartridge bag. I also added a new gun barrel that I made from aluminium tubing and added the handles to the 20 mm magazine.

Thanks to all of you who give/gave your advice.

Comments are welcomed by me.

Cheers from Peter

Thanks Will and thanks Frank.

I have more 'In-progress build' images in my Photobucket account if people want me to post them here too?
