PT 15 Torpedo Boat Empty

This old Tamiya 72 scale kit of the JSDF Torpedo Boat was first produced in the late '70's as a motorized toy, but was a limited re-issue a couple of years ago and it is another that belongs to Matt, but as it is a modern day model subject Matt was not impressed when he opened the box. He asked me to build it a few days after he bought the kit and I have used it as a subject in my book {still being edited}, before I have it printed. The model needs a lot of filler and re enforcement sections to keep the deck level, {due to the removal of the battery box, motor and gear box assemblies}, it is all Neutral Grey above the waterline and a strange Green below. A lot of the hand rail posts where damaged and could not be repaired let alone rebuilt, the thread was kit supplied, the subject will be completed at sometime, but I doubt if it will ever return to it's owner.

This is a large model for this small scale.

When you go home tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow we gave our today.

Those that never learn from history will always repeat it.
