Thanks to Ted and CJ for providing these photos.

CJ, is that a camouflage scheme on the hull? Or was the boat just in desperate need of a paint job?

Interestingly enough there is a version of the 37mm Browning/Colt Anti Aircraft gun available in 1/35. I didn't recognize it right away because this kit version has the .50 cal's attached. Look for the M1A2 available from Commander Models (a.k.a. Iron Shipwrights).
