    Isn't that your NOAA fishing vessell? (did I spell that right?).
    Very sweet Lizzie.

    Nice model of the maritime version of the B1-RD. :)

    The RHIB is very nice too.

    Here is a picture with the boat in focus and the gul out of focus.

    I'm never real good at getting everything just right when the weather is cold. Burr! Get the shot and got the gloves back on.

    Its the P/V Chinook Wind which is a RAIV custom made by Almar for Noaa Fisheries Enforcement.

    Is the B1-RD another type of boat made by Almar?

    Lizzie............. B1RD..........BIRD..........:grin:

    Not sure of the origin, but when my Navy dad pulled it on me years ago I fell for it.

    The Model looks fantastic!

    Clunk myself on the head. I'm a bit dense.

    The railings are mostly 20 gauge wire. The antennas are made of scrap. I've got a chunk of what must be telephone cable made of bundled wire with colored insulation. It's about 3 inches thick. I pulled antenna wire out of the bundle.
