13/03/2024.   1910        Gebruder Bing 16" Gunboat.         Repair and Restoration

This little Bing is the last of three boats I acquired in December of 2022, the others being the Carette and Orkin. All three were in a somewhat buggered state, my problem is that I simply can't leave a job unfinished and I couldn't rest until they were all back to pristine condition, at last I can get back to doing my stuff now. Talk about OCD! I'm pretty sure that this model was based on the 1890's Sharpshooter Class of the Royal Navy's torpedo gunboat fleet, given the time period, deck layout and profile the resemblance is compelling.
