Russ where on the model is the flash you mentioned as I could not see it?

The only issue I have is that it seems you would have to buy two kits to have pontoons on each side.

James, thanks for the help.

Darren, I didn't think to photograph the flash until after I had removed it. It was along the sides of the barge parts, and on several of the smaller parts for the upper deck, as well as the lenses for the lights. I also had some flash on the sides of several of the left hand (dark gray) track shoes. It wasn't hard to remove, but I was not used to seeing it on Dragon kits.

Matt, you are correct. Either get both or get a little creative in your diorama. Maybe just starting to hook up the first vehicle. I don't know what vehicle would have transported the barge section between river crossings.

Russ, thanks for including a picture with a panzer on the floating deck. For some reason I've been having a hard time trying to picture this setup in service and your pictures really helped out. I still don't know that I'm really interested in these things, but they would make one very cool diorama for someone with good water modeling skills.

Russ I am sorry I did not see your reply earlier. The information you have given on flash on this kit does not feel me with confidence for later production runs.
