Looks good. Ilike it. I would change the front wind sheild to one that slopes forward instead of back. Other than that i think you captured it very well.

Nice, it is good to see again boat MOC here.  I thought that there is nothing to do with the large RIB base but you have taken it into quite purposeful use.  Good job.  Is there any real boat similar to yours?

from wiki and the wiki description of it

Quote

The USCG Defender class boat, also called response boat-small (RB-S), is a standard boat introduced by the United States Coast Guard in July 2003. The Coast Guard plans to replace a mixture of older boats with up to 700 Defender class vessels. The boats serves a variety of missions, including search and rescue, port security and constabulary duties.

I too have one of those bases and didn't really know what to do with it. When I saw the first pictures of the MOC I wasn't too convinced that this was a good idea. However, the photograph of the real boat made it clear that you've actually done a pretty good job and the improved version is even better. Nice.

Cheers,
Ralph

Very nice, that change of the windshield did it. It is really good to see what you can do with this base  :thumbup:

btw, your last pics are a bit blurry, or is it my eye vision  :sceptic:
