Arcane Scenery and Model Supplies presents:
MOTOR TORPEDO BOAT (28MM)
This is not an exact scale model but a generic representation of a typical MTB designed to go with 28mm model soldiers and figures.
The model will be supplied as a flat pack kit.
Designed by British company Vospers, this Motor Torpedo Boat (or MTB) 73′ type was used extensively by the Royal Navy Coastal Forces from the channel to the Mediterranean.
These 73-foot boats came about in 1943 from a requirement that British MTBs should be better able to fight other small craft, which was generally the job of the larger motor gunboats (MGB).
Equipped with four 18-inch torpedo tubes as their major offensive armament along with Oerlikon 20 mm cannon and some defensive armament (generally two twin Vickers K machine guns, one either side) for protection against enemy aircraft, they could pack a punch against enemy shipping
Supplied unassembled and unpainted in kit form with full instructions.
Any models or accessories shown are for scale purposes only and are not included.
Dimensions L275 x W90 x H70mm (approx.)
Product Features Etched detailing
Material(s) MDF Greyboard
Laser cut 2mm MDF with Laser etched detail. Kit supplied unassembled and unpainted. Includes Removeable roof, etched detailing and battle damage.
We suggest that you use PVA glue to permanently fix the building together. Painting is optional, we think that a quick wash of ink will be enough for most gamers but of course, you can add more detail if you prefer.
If you need glue for your models, I sell Revell Contacta Adhesive, Revell Professional polystyrene glue and a range of super glues and other adhesives. They can be found in the ‘Arcane scenery’ and ‘Glues, Fillers, Paints and Tools’ categories of my shop.
