What have I done?
I showed my engineer all the guesses from this thread and now he got some new ideas what to do.....

But today, he took bag 4 - in all of the big bags are several smaller ones with the required parts. Quite good this way as there are nearly 2000 parts in all the bags.



He did not took the big thing he made so far, but started to build something new.



After he used all the parts, he got this as the result. And liked it.



He thinks that it must be attached somewhere at the end of the big thing.

A quick look at the side of the build shows the disruptive pattern typical of the Bismark.

Besides which, there is this:

My engineer has read all posts here carefully. He liked all of the guesses, but still won't tell me what he wants to do.

So, bag 5 is open and ready to use.



Again, he starts some new part, without using the things he made so far



Some additional stuff



It looks as if he is finished the new element, but there are still a few parts left.



So he combines it with yesterdays thing.



And then adds it to the big part the build the first days. Now this is defintly a quite big ship hull, even if there are still a few holes in it.



I wonder where he wants to put this big thing when its done.

Well, after yesterday, I thought that it might be a bench. Where my engineer and his friends can sit and wathc around. Bears like to sit and watch around, I know it as there are many of them around here.

But when he opened bag 6 today - which was the biggest so far - and started to work, I now think it might be a ship.



And I think he has used this kind of camo painting before...

He's mis-read the instructions and left out the ramps for the RO-RO elements

Well, a good questions where are masts and sails? And where are the rudders - for the guys who should row the boat?

Today a lot of very small parts were in bag number 7.



And finally, there are guns!



More guns



I fear this will no bench for my engineer, the upper part gets filled a bit

My engieneer had a day off yesterday. And besides this, carnival season started yesterday and maybe he got dressed up and went out to party.

Today, he continues with bag 8, and i see some little boats in there.


If I should guess, I would say this looks like a funnel.



Looks quite done now, but I think somthing bis is still missing. And there is still a hole in the hull.
