|Let’s face it, harbor craft and workboats are not sexy. They don’t have the guns or weapon systems that the larger and sleeker warships have. Come to think of it, they are not armed at all. However, they
do the necessary grunt work that keeps the harbors they operate in running. So without them, the big boys would be at a loss.
Combrig has released a set with two modern Soviet/Russian harbor craft, a Project 1606 “Kostromich” small tug and a Project 376 “Yaroslavets” cutter. Frankly I do not know much about these two
vessels and I had a hard time finding information about them so I won’t go into any background. This is a very basic and straight-forward set. Both models are full-hull, which I found a little surprising.
Since these will most probably used in a diorama setting, at least that is how I would use them, I would have expected them to have at least a waterline option. Some cutting/sanding will be needed to
make them water-lined.
