he looks a little grumpy.. you need to give him a nice smoking pipe in that extra hand.. of course.. this being "action man" a nice chomped cigar between those cleanched teeth, with maybe a little red LED that fades in and out.

once again.. incredible work! do you do this for a living or something!?

That is so awesome! Bernhard, you have taken your models into the stratosphere! If you want a room full of trophies, take your boats to a model show.

I wish I could visit your home and see all your wonderful boats in person.
