Sidewheeler Ship

The Germans used any thing that would float to evacuate German civilians and troops from the Baltic Sea as World War Two was drawing to a close.

Here a Revell 1/72nd scale KM sailor stands on the deck of the side wheeler. The Germans used them to tend submarine nets in harbors, and as coastal patrol craft.

As I continued construction, I moved around some of the parts taken off the kit as a sort of mock up version of the model. There will be many more changes, but this is the general outline of the final model.
