Looks good and I suppose Herman Mawe.. (partially obscured) is German for Boaty McBoatyface.

Sorry Tomthecat it's a British thing when a public competition was held to name a new Antarctic explorer ship and this won but top brass didn't like it so called it the 'David Attenborough' instead, so boring.

No offence taken :laugh: Boaty McBoatyface, that's funny, I probably would've voted for that, too... The prospective crew probably wouldn't be too happy about such a name however.

I had no idea who Hermann Marwede was either. Looked him up on wikipedia. He was a longtime director of Beck's beer of Hamburg and a supporter of the "Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger", the German equivalent of the RNLI. This vessel was named after him to honour his and his family's support.

Hi all just thought I would show you what comes with this kit, got to say it's a lot of plastic for the money.

SIR David Attenborough!!

The onboard submarine was called "Boaty McBoatface"....Although technically, it should be "Subby McSubface"
