1/144 MarineArtillerieLeichter (MAL), Typ IA 38/52

Some years ago, I had designed this model and got it 3D printed. Quickly I had to realize, that the dimensions were not 100% correct. With the publishing of the Finish WWII picture archive I got the wonderful opportunity to find a lot of pictures of these MALs in Finish service. Best of all, the Finish photographer took pictures during the time, the Germans completed the ships in Finland and during the training of the crews.
