Bernhard Gruben & Johann Fidi (accessories for Graupner)
Designed some accessories for Graupner model boat of Bernhard Gruben ( https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/23,1-Meter-Klasse_der_DGzRS ). Graupner makes nice and precise models, but often they are missing some details. Here it is a bow thruster, what an important part for RC model!
More details here https://www.zonerama.com/jsyrovat/Album/3964269 .
After testing the first version, I did some improvements. And it's working very well, it's also build into the hull.
If someone is interested, it can be downloaded for a small fee here (or write me a message):
haha, reminds me at the speedboad that I had as a kid.... approx. 48 years ago.... with a 3V zinc carbon battery inside the torpedo like motor housing.
Thank you all.
Yes, please share it 🙂
