Soldier Force V Coast Patrol Playset

Another naval playset, another complement to the "sea forces". Yes another boat repaint, but well worth it. This is an interesting painting scheme. Also included, the "2nd generation" kayak and an awesome trailer.

And like written on the box: "They float!"

Interesting box detail. A "sea ramp". Chap Mei boxes keep getting better and better. Too bad most go out to the garbage. Not these...

Contents view.

Towing action.

Included accessories.

Figures: Repaints of Series III from Soldier Force. I like these paint jobs better.

Figure: This "desert camo" "Major Macintyre (Combat Strategist)" looks good. For the original paint scheme, refer to "Soldier Force Deluxe Combat Vehicle Playset - Humvee".

The 2nd CM Navy diver, "Frogman Deepdive". This was not as extensively used as its predecessor. Understandable, since it is not as usable as frogman in all Chap Mei themes.

The boat. A deep-V fiberglass hull "Zodiac-alike" RIB (Rigid-hulled inflatable boat). This Soldier Force vehicle is a repaint of previous models. Please refer to "Deep Sea Adventure Shark Katcher Playset" for some more details.

The "trailer". Usually, and in almost every case, Chap Mei looks for "real world" vehicles and accessories for inspiration. This cool looking "water-trailer" may be another case. I just don´t know. If anyone knows about anything looking like this, be free to comment.

The details are amazingly cool looking in their simplicity. Goes from AA post to cargo hold.

And it can even hold a small vehicle. Or a ton of equipment.

The kayak. Nice overall vehicle. For more details on this vehicle, refer to "Soldier Force IV Outpost Bunker with Kayak".

Chap Mei "S.E.A.L." aboard.

Without accessories (paddle and gun).

    It's a nice PBR for coastal patrols and the kayak is very nicely for silently water insertions, made me remember the Action Force attack kayak. The guy with diver masks goes fine with the set, but the other one is a miss.

  2. I think there is something like the 'water trailer' in real life, but it's basically something like a pontoon platform with or without an engine that can be towed / moved from one point to another and anchored as a dive / swim temporary platform such as when the boat to go there may be needed for shuttling back and forth the dive site. But much larger in real life, this one is very small.


Thank your for being part of this!
