28mm PBR in progress, Hope to get this one cast up at some stage, and have managed to get my old running mate Paul Hicks onboard to sculpt a crew!!  :D :D

I may make it available to buy, it all really depends on the cost of producing the models in resin and white metal.

I have some of the GM monitors on the shelf, still unpainted because of the lack of this item to complete my brown water Navy.  For years now I've been looking for a suitable toy substitute, without success.  This would be a welcome model!
do visit my websites & photobucket:

Have found a casting firm who can take on both the resin, and white metal parts of the model. Once it is completed, it will go off for a costing assessment. Sadly it won't be cheap, I estimate the PBR plus a crew will retail around the £25 to £30 mark. :o
