'Das Boot' bust from papaminiatures.com

    I just finished the double bust from papaminiatures.com 'Das Boot'.
    It's a scene from the 1981 movie 'Das Boot' where in minute 49:31 the captain listens with the radio operator if there are ships in the area.

    It's that scene that papaminiatures.com used to make the bust.
    In the past on forums from the film 'Das Boot' the question was asked whether the captain was wearing a scarf from a German football team - they spoke of Schalke 04 at the time - but actually the captain does not have a scarf but a towel from the Kriegsmarine around his neck.
    In the beginning of the film at minute 16:36 an officer of the German propaganda service is shown the toilet of the submarine during a tour, and there is a 'Kriegsmarine' towel hanging there. There were probably several towels, including one that the captain used to wear around the neck.
