Micro modeling going on here. Considering their size, there are a lot of parts in the crane and dinghy.

I'm looking at the pic of the parts before they were cut and I'm kinda frightened. I do have a good quality Japanese (Nonaka) screw punch but I'm kinda uh-oh.. looking at them!

Excellent job by the way I really enjoy reading your blogs.

Hello everyone

Final Grande !!!

Two position lights are added to the rear... and finally I put them in place

Tower with all the lights on.

Thus, the Helgoland customs cruiser is finished after 113 hours of construction and 103 days of handicrafts.

For me this was a challenging model that was tremendous fun.

A handful of ships built from 1490 parts, I'm happy with the result.

I would like to thank everyone for the many likes and for the great interest in my construction report, that is very motivating!

Best regards
Kurt

Glückwunsch Kurt.
Fine work. The details make it appear to be larger, until you show it in hand.
