Hello this is my current build! An AFV 1/48 F-CK-1C Ching-Kuo Indigenous Defence Fighter. I decided to build this one in flight Here is the current status: Here are some of my previous in-flight-aircraft works, from which I have earned some experience depicting aircraft in-flight-modeling with landing gear down 1) Boeing F/A-18F, VX-23 Salty Dogs, Hasegawa 07450, 1/48 2) Boeing EF-18AM, Ala 15, Ejercito del Aire. Kinetic Models 1/48 3) Grumman F-14D Super Tomcat, VF-213 Operation Enduring Freedom, AMK 1/48 4) Grumman F-14D Super Tomcat, VF-2 Bounty Hunters, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Tamiya 1/48 5) Mikoyan MiG-31BS, Blue 16m VVS Russia, AMK 1/48
Patrol Craft Fast (PCF), also known as Swift Boats, were all-aluminum, 50-foot (15 m) long, shallow-draft vessels operated in Vietnam primarilybby the United States Navy, Initially patrolling the coastal areas they later took to the interior waterways as part of the 'Brown-water Navy' where they carried out interdiction, counter insurgency, troop transport and special forces insertion. In total Eighty-four Mark I Swift boats served in Vietnam, with a further twenty reserved for training, however they are frequently overlooked in favour of their more heavily armed and warlike cousins the PBRs, Landing Ships and Monitors with whom they fought alongside. ..... The Brown Water Navy as a whole is rather overlooked in modelling terms, and the PCF is no exception despite it's distinguished service. As far as I'm aware the Revell kit is the only kit generally available and although being rather old (1967), quite basic (61 parts) and lacking in any type of interior detail it appears to be quite accurate and has some potential. .... For the princely sum of £20 inc p+p I now have 2 of these. I shall tackle one and hide the other for a possible future project (original civilian or demobbed perhaps)
