Hello fellow kartonists!
During christmas I started to build the Scwimmwagen.
I started with the outboard engine.

I'm not quite sure what to think of this model so far.....
The pieces seems to fit allright so far, but there is something that doesn't feel right.But I'll go ahead...
Body cover are cutted and ready be assembled

And here the fun begins....mounting the small parts to get the body into a whole piece.I found this part rather difficult.

But I got it mounted in a way.....

Luckily I scanned the booklet, so I have backup
I'm going to enlarge the sideparts so they fit better to the body.
It seems like this model is a mixup of two different models.There are numbers and parts that is not a part of this model, so I have to make some "custom" parts to make it fit properly.
