The Sand Pebbles is a movie about American gunboats in China during the Interwar period.
This is a 1/32nd scale model of the San Pablo the gunboat from the movie.
It shows Marines and Sailors ready to repel boarders.
It is a custom built model and very well done, to include a motor launch and sanpan.
I really liked this ship and would love one in 1/72nd scale. Actually the US operated several of these including the Panay. They were withdrawn to the Philippines at the start of the Second World War.
