Crocodile Kit Bash Update






I started on the PSC Churchill Crocodile kit bash today, with the two side skirts modified with circular escape hatches cut from the Airfix kit parts and the hull retro-fitted with the Airfix exhaust and frontal hull plate. The circular hatches were surprisingly easy to do but the exhaust system was a pain in the bum, as I had to cut away the existing exhausts to make it sit properly on the engine deck. The front plate was also a bit of an involved job as the Airfix part is too small for the PSC hull, so some filling was required to make it look right. The guidelines that I posted a link to last time were very helpful, however, and it's easy to make the relevant modifications without having to work it out!
