Some more parts finished:

I found a pic showing a lower board underneath the front windows. So the part has to be cut:




And the result:





And the parts of the big box (clerestory for the engine room)





Front of the wheel house with Broncos dinghy:

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.

...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-weapüns) were waiting since years!
