Tim,

Looking forward to following this build.

The "Willkommen auf Manfred s Modellbau Seite" is fantastic.

I have just ordered his "MS Malo".

Also like his "Kleinschubboot "2230"" and "Spezial Motorschiff "Crane Barge"".

Below is a translation of his Index.

The price is Right !


Excellent !

It Can be done.

Here are some pictures of the kit that recently arrived, traveled Quickly by UPS ( 4 days ).

Well packaged, no damage at all.

This guy ships with the hull "suspended" in the box, tethered by nylon twine.

This is his Barkasse, a 1925 service boat ~

I saw it on the German models post and researched a bit, there are two different companies that make a kit, the smaller one is 15.5 inches ( picture #15 ) and I don't have the skills to make that little guy RC so I bought this Sievers kit, it is 31 inches, just right.

All the parts are machined out of what seems to be styrene ( it likes Testor's glue ).

Came with a sealed stuffing box that fits in a brass liner that's cast into the flawless glass hull.

The parts are all loose, you don't have to pop them out of a sheet and you don't have to trim them ~

Even the curved bench seats for the passenger area are cut out and ready for paint !

The only drawback is that the instructions are in German, but figuring out what goes where has been a breeze so far.

This kit was $260.00 Shipped.

The guy is good, he picks a subject, visits the real boat, gets documentation than engineers it out !!!

Check out his killer rescue rocket boat:

A new addition to this line sent out this AM, a 1944 Rescue Boat, later converted to a fishing boat ( that would be a fun build ~ ):
