My current build is the precedent Prekasa;but this applies to many other PT type boats.
The Perkasa is awash with various sizes and shapes of lockers;If you look online there are many choices ( at a choice price!),and they are rarely exactly what you want anyway.
I have been making these lockers out of any old scrap of wood,cut to size and shape,covered in 0.5 / 1mm plasticard,hinges and hasps etc.made from a huge pack of profiles direct from china.Sand and prime with etching primer ,and the result is quick,easy,and exactly the style you want for next to no money!

If you go to battlecrafts shop on eBay, or battlecrafts own website. All the deck furniture and weaponry are available in resin casting or resin an metal castings from them. Both in 1/32 & 1/24th scale. I have made some and bought some from battlecrafts. I have found them very helpful and also very fast delivery. Hope that helps. Best wishes, Dave W

Sorry guys... I should have added that Battlecrafts do loads of armaments in various scales for lots of ships. If you have the money, they have a complete set of fittings including guns, torpedoes, and ALL the deck fittings for both 1/24th and 1/32nd models of the Perkasa. I have only added a few bits plus both guns on my 34" one, but it does add a lot of "realism" to it. Pics will follow when she's complete 😊

You're right Rolf, they ain't cheap, but they look damn good!
Just ordered a set of 4.7s for HMS Hotspur. Up to now had only found such guns in 1/96 and everything here (Germany) seems to be 1/100 🤔
Unfortunately Battle Crafts don't do the fiddly quad Vickers 0.5 MGs, so I went for a later fit of twin 20mm and built them from 0.5mm brass to John Lambert (God rest his brilliant soul) plans.
Here the link -
http://www.battlecrafts.co.uk/
otherwise if you just Google Battle Crafts you'll get zig million links to online wargames😡
Tip/request to all: When recommending please include the link👍 Saves a lot of time filtering out the rubbish!
Cheers Doug 😎

Sorry for no link. But in my defence, if I put battlecrafts (and it's one word not two) in Google, the first thing that comes up is this site. I have no zig million links to war games. I must have my browser security set a lot higher than Doug's. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

Oddly that is the response I now get (Google or Yahoo secure) !
Router / Browser / Cache / Google memory !?
Curiously MacAffee Web Adviser lists all their links as 'Suspicious', 'Non existent URL' and 'PUP' (Potentially Unwanted Programme) !!??
I have advised them of the truth and asked them to re-check and re-classify.
Cheers Doug 😎
PS now going off-air while I learn to programme the new RC set! 😉
Wish me luck!
