WWII US Coast Guard cutter - anti Uboat
« on: May 07, 2023, 02:25:59 »
Dedicated to my grandfather… US Navy Atlantic World War II veteran.
My first custom;
I took the playmobil coast guard ship (see photo) item 3599 circa 1979 and painted using gun metal grey and black testers paint. The captain on top and figure inside are from playmobil (do not remember set). The two figures on rear are customs I got on eBay.  See photo for info.  I painted the orange oil barrels black to be depth chargers. The last photos are finished product
