This is not a plastic model. It's a real boat, ready to be assembled and painted like you would do with a real dinghy, but full scale. Knowing my story with models, mine would end up oozing with glue.

The dinghy was made by Michael Johansson for an exhibition in Malmö, Sweden. Unfortunately, it's not a real plastic model: "Everything is painted in a unifying plastic layer to resemble the surface of a model kit. The real boat is transformed into a model of itself, and its original purpose has given way to something else."
