SS River Clyde work in progress

SS River Clyde was a collier prior to the Great War. She was modified to carry troops and land them near Cape Helles, Gallipoli, on 25 April 1915. Thanks to some really helpful advice from contributors to TMP and Lead Adventure Forum, I sourced a merchant vessel in 1:600 scale from Tumbling Dice. The original was around 6” long but, with some careful cutting and re-rivetting (well Green Stuff and glue but hey), here is a reasonable fascmile of the WW1 Landing Craft Infantry:

Still a work in progress, at 3” long she is a nice size for a 6mm game. Now for some sandbags and MGs in the bow, etc, etc.
