Hiya folks,

Anyone have any idea if someone makes 6mm (1:300 / 1:285) scale life rafts / rubber boats? preferably with passengers…

Heroics and Ros might.

Not really sure though.

You could try Scotia Grendel. This is not a life raft but it is STS47 thru STS54 German Sturmme Boat, Gemini or Ridgid Raider. They do have a crew and at 1/300 crew is rather generic.

Follow the Scotia link. They had various rubber rafts somewhere, different sizes numbers of people, some rowing some empty, some with outboard motor, different arms of the troops, etc. It seems they have a few basics with many variations of loads.

Thanks folks – The Tumbling Dice stuff is 1/600th :(

I had looked at Scotia but only saw the modern stuff. Looking again have found the rubber dingies in the "Neutral Equipment" section of the land forces section :)
