Wolfgang Petersen is not amused! What happened to his boat? Ah yes, its a new kind of pocket size weapons, eh?
So heres my attemt of my.... drumroll please .... very first boat build at all!
Affordable price, an unusual appearance and even 1/35 scale, which allows me to use some figures besides the ones from the box. PE parts too? Wow. I havent build an Italeri kit for years as well.
A first look shows the typical Italeri quality - good appearence, soft plastic and sometimes wishy-washy details like nuts and bolts etc. Does it really matter? Dont think so, nothing that looks too serious. How good is the fit? We will see. Yes, looks good so far, this could be fun.

For the Pz. II I ordered a Mantis animal set with quirrels, a stork, a fox and... a BEAVER! I ordered it because of the squirrels, and I really didnt expected to need that set so quick again. Furthermore, I found a bollard in 1/35 scale. Hooray for the spare parts box!
Even more progress today. Unfortunately theres bad weather the last days here - perfect for modeling.
The final steps in the Bibers cockpit have been done, its ready for paint. And the base was prepared for paint too. Then black paint followed, waves made from putty, greenish tones and "Busch" artificial water. It needs really long to dry, and it looks very good so far after 5h of drying.
