Greetings Beautiful People.

Finally, I have managed to do what I used to do when I was in the UK. Progress after Progress and reveal after reveal. And here is another one for 2017. I am happy to have finished this but I am not happy about the silly boo boos I made.

 

 


And my Gary Wintin Shot... LOL ..


More informations and more photos and bigger ones can be found on my blog as usual -

Please do have a look and thank you so much in advance for any feedback you guys may have. C&C are welcomed. I may have lost some of my previous skills and I am slowing trying to get them back.
Thank you for always supporting and for the kind words and various encouragements.
Until the next launch.

I have seen it outside in real life during the Malaysia Hobby Show dear Simon. As a leader of the one and only club in Myanmar, our club and I were there and actually saw that thing on display. That thing is amaze-ball

There's talk of the Royal Marines having them, impressive looking boats.

Hi Gary,

Must have missed you at the show but yes that boat looks a winner. Here are some pics taken by another modeler...

Marines borrowed a couple of CB90s about 5 or 6 years ago. Didn't go anywhere. Not designed to be davit-slung on LPH or LPD, so couldn't take it anywhere. Not suitable for Clyde SSBN escort, for which they now have more conventional patrol launches. Navy didn't have a role for them either. Harbour patrol at naval bases in peacetime is an MDP responsibility, with RM support at Clyde. We weren't keen on the fixed twin 50's and didn't like the ring mount: couldn't hit a supertanker.

Swedish Coastal Artillery - nearest thing they have to marines - are a coastal home defence outfit with very different roles to the Marines. For a start they don't generally carry out assault landings. These boats were designed essentially to move fire teams, artillery observers and Hellfire launch teams about the coastline and islands. They use the Hellfire on a portable ground launcher as an anti-shipping weapon and still have mobile coastal artillery batteries.

As things stand, RN and RM have no use for CB90.

Fascinated information Peter, thank you for sharing with us.

However common sense seems to have been MIA in recent years when it comes to Defence Procurement, so I wouldn't assume that unsuitability is necessarily a hindrance.
