I received my L'Arsenal 1/350 Higgins kit last week and it is a gem! The kit depicts a 450 series boat and is exquisitely cast. There are a few minor issues: the two 20mm guns have shields, their tripods have an elevating wheel (?), and there are two smoke generators. These are easily addressed with some judicious snipping (20mm) and just plain leaving off Well worth the price, especially since there are two boats in each kit..

Do you have a boat in mind Al? I'm still thinking on what to do with mine.

Nope. I don't build much anymore; mostly just collect,

Beautiful, thanks for posting.

Dang, now I need one to go with my PT-34 and my Elco 80 footer.

Oh, sure, spend all your time and superior talent developing kits and building for BlueJacket but not sharing your personal builds with us!

Cheers!
