...when the postman rings
Yesterday I got a huge, but light package from Berlin (Modellbau-Wikinger):



Nice detailed parts, wooden deck + AA platforms and a lot of small parts in the hull.
And extra parts from Italeris S-100 (AA-weapŁns) were waiting since years!

Michael, this looks realy pretty good with all those Kasetten, where the miled material is behind the frames. Very nice.

Hi Michael. Just what does KFK stand for. I've taken a liking to 1/35th boats lately and this caught my attention. I like all the wood work.
