IPMS Scale Model World - a photo report, part seven

Part seven is a 'hotch-potch' of various water based models ranging from the Fantastical Russian Caspian Sea Monsters to the Roman Trireme of Antiquity.

I thought that these two images may need some additional notes. Imagine a German attempt to conquer parts of Central Africa at the height of WW2 and the need for a shallow-draft enforcer. This cross between a German E-Boot and the Airfix Great Western paddle steamer may have been the answer. The attention to detail  and authenticity of this imagineered gun boat was quite staggering and I enjoyed discussing the idea behind the model with its constructor.
