This is for all you 'Treaders. I think these would be awesome to have!
High Speed Boat (HSB)-It's a Go-Fast boat with a few guns.
Rigid inflatable (RIB)-A Zodiac designed exclusively for USN Specwarfare
Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC)- The little brother of the RIB
Light Patrol Boat (PBL)- A Boston Whaler fishing boat with a very bad attitude
MK.V SOC Boat- A dedicated SEAL delivery boat, heavily armed and capable of 50+ knots

I think this has a big market out there: 1/35 LCAC! Would be nice to have along with the current USMC M1A1 kits out there. :-)

Hobby Fan does indeed make a Zodiac with five SEALS. I got mine about a month ago. Break out the wallet for this one, it ain't cheap.......

I dream of a world where the PACV/AACV is available in injection molded plastic...

Then we'll get started on all those Soviet/Russian monster hovercraft...in 1/35... drooollll.....

Meduim SEAL support craft, a full range of Riverene Monitors, oh shoot while we're dreaming how about an LST in 1/35th for WWII dios and the Vietnam Riverene/Seawolf base!

Then I woke up...
Got to stop smoking ALL the crack at once...

Mike
who does NOT need an intervention.. just 1/35th scale plastic hovercraft, stat!
