The dimensions, Length 79mm Width 32mm Height 18mm, ensure it fits seamlessly into scaled environments.

"To achieve this finished look for the small rigid-hull inflatable boat, I started with a base coat using acrylics, ensuring even coverage to avoid brush marks. For the hull, a vibrant blue was applied, while the inner sections were painted with a mix of khaki and brown to represent the material typically seen on inflatable boats. The seats received a light grey, creating a contrast against the darker tones. Weathering effects were achieved with a wash of diluted black paint, accentuating the detail and depth of the resin casting. Dry brushing was employed to enhance raised areas and create a sense of wear. Fine detailing was completed last, including the outboard motor painted in black with metallic highlights to suggest a used, yet well-maintained engine." - Stuart
