"The model looks terrific. It really is a work of
art and the level of detail is beyond what I would
have imagined. I really can't say thank you
enough. I will pass along to all my fellow river
rats veterans so I am sure you will have some more
business headed your way!
This 18" long model was
commissioned by a former member of the United States
Navy Seal in 2017.
