Christian, excellent work. 5StarModel and the other new models really enhance the old kits. I never thoughtful I'd see a diorama with this subject - thank you for doing it. That lifeboat is amazing.

Christian,

Your upgraded T.149 looks nothing like the mess I made of the same kit years ago - well done! I really like your beach effects too.

Thanks Tim,

I actually build the kit because of the update set.
I thought it will be a fast build, but all the little stuff took there time.
But yes the result speak for itself.
And thanks that you liked the beach, it was my first try.

Greetings Christian
