[Reviresco 28MM] White Gunboat Adarjan
« on: January 25, 2016, 11:48:39 AM »
Hi !

This is the paddle gunboat "Adarjan" from the White Russian Caspian Sea Fleet during the RCW !

At the beginning it's an (excellent) Reviresco kit : the "WaterWitch"

http://www.tin-soldier.com/waterwitch.html

(Printed cardboard with lead artillery and details such ladders , riddings fittings , vents , stantions ...)

I replace the cardboard lifeboat by plastic lifeboats and the towel came from a plastic kit ...

The lenght of the boat is about 75 cm (2,2 feet !?)

Some skills are needed but it's a fantastic (and not expensive !) kit , and an excellent idea from John Mc Ewan !

Next will be the "Minos" freighter but i would like to slightly modify it to an Seaplane Tender so it will take time and skills  ;D

I hope you like the poor old "Adarjan" , a mid 19th century old boat who had to fight for the Whites against the Reds (and Turks !) for Baku and the Caspian Sea  :'(

It looks great!
But I would have replaced the artillery to more modern field guns and machine guns.
And still you have a flag - upside down :)

Well you could just say it was Serbian.

Lovely model making.

Botou os ingleses na roda
3 a 0 no Liverpool
Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio não tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo
Pede o mundo de novo

By the way, where did you get those plastic lifeboats? They're very nice!

A lovely piece of work! Though it does appear the crew are under the impression they're in the Serbian navy rather than the Siberian  :D
