Michael,

This is some solid, clean model building. It is a pleasure to watch as your model develops!

The Kriegsfischkutter needs a „Rettungsfloß“ on its roof and first I wanted to use the parts from Italeris S-100. But IRON models has the right stuff as 3D prints.
And there is a very big difference:





So 3 can go to my spare box to be used with the S-boats in the future:



The width is correct for the roof part:

The aft platform became its rail, the mast and some belaying pins for the flag lines:

...and now the flags. Thin alu foil painted with Klear, the decals sealed with Klear:



carefully folded:



The signal means D X F = released by special order
Some pins to the rail and rope with the flags to the pins:

Really outstanding work Michael ! I especially like the toilet (no pun intended), it really looks very convincing with this tiny toilet roll.

Gruss,

Arjan

I must admit, that detail struck me as well - great work!

Michael,

Nice job with the radio room and WC. The chain for the anchor seems to fit very well what size it the chain?

Hi Mark,
it's the Master Tool's universal fine chain set; two types
1.5 x 0.8 mm and 2.0 x 1.1 mm
I've used the last one.

I changed the kits depth charges to resin ones by Schatton.



1st row: Wikinger, 3 parts
2nd row: Schatton 1 part resin



A little bit different in length and diameter, but the new parts fit to the racks:
