robbe fireboat

I am building a robbe "dusseldorf" and wish to detail the interior of the cabin/pilot house, problem is I cannot find any info on the 1:1 boat other than it was built by rheinwerft GmbH of mainz-mombach, a series of 3 identical boats, to be used in the Rhur harbors. I cant seem to find anything else on them. I realize this is only a semi scale model ,however I would like to come close to the proper cabin layout. I will be greatful for any help/info.thank you in advance

Perhaps a search in German for Feuerlöschboot Düsseldorf
If links to links from links lead anywhere they seem to lead here;

http://www.flb2.de/
Click - Bildergalerie -> 1963 bis heute
and - Bildergalerie -> 1975

My impression, is that the above webmaster, Juergen Lamertz, runs this forum
http://www.marina-innovation.de/wbb2/index.php

Plug the forum address into http://babel.altavista.com/
The site should then be translated(sort of) as you click through the topics.
They seem to be asking and answering questions about the original version, the extended bow version, model construction, equipment....

No interior pictures, but the webmaster may be a good source.

Several interior images here of the boat stationed in Frankfurt
Click on the links at the bottom of the page.

Whew, that was a bit of a drawn out search...


Also found these sites for Feuerlöschboot Düsseldorf
No interior images
