Apocalypse Now Redux?

Continuing my current series of model updates, here are some more pictures of my Patrol Boat Riverine 'Pibber';

On a few occasions, I've been tempted to try and paint the figures in this model to resemble the characters from the film Apocalypse Now. But each time, I've decided not to, for a couple of reasons. First, I like my models to be based on actual real-life individual vehicles, and second, I would need to find some way of making a brand new figure resembling Martin Sheen's character. So, for now at least, my 'Pibber' is based on a real life boat, as used in the Vietnam War.
