When I think of the campaign in Iraq in 1947 I envisage many battles along the banks and deltas of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. I therefore felt that the armies of all sides needed some waterborne support. The first of many water based vehicles that I have finished was a small Allied patrol boat that has been dustified with the addition of twin phasers and quad 50 calibre machine guns.
The model I based the kit on was the old Revell 1/48 Vietnam era river patrol boat. Here are some shots of the patrol boat reconing the Axis controlled bank prior to a full scale Allied attack.
