    Prc25 radio & base

    I saw one of these on the web ages ago and thought, that would be cool to have in 1/6 scale.So i finally made one, still WIP as i discovered some detail at the rear that i missed, gives me a excuse to put in a small speaker and be able to hook it up to the cell phone and play the stereotyped Nam' songs while setting up shots.(give me a break i havent slept) Hope you enjoy.Prc25 radio & base-2017-02-12-11-48-30-jpgPrc25 radio & base-2017-02-12-11-48-30-jpg The radio is an old DML , which needs some detailing & repair, the base is 1/8 mdf with a metal rear section, still figuring out the retaining clips.Apart from the retaining clips this is done, i made some but. The handles broke so i drilled them out and put in some wire handles, sprayed the lot OD then did the details .Prc25 radio & base-2017-02-26-22-46-14-jpg

    Looks really good. I'm unfamiliar with the base set, was it stationary, for vehicles, or both?

    Portable/Adaptable would cover it, it was designed to fit to various vehicles, boats, command posts etc. When i finished the main part and painted it, i discovered a new pic on the web and saw that the rear had another mount(for trucks/jeeps) but i should be able to incorporate that. Here,s a reference pic.Prc25 radio & base-prcamp-jpg

    Cannot complain, a good look at a well-made rig, and a bit of an education for me.
