graupner steam

Being new to this, and having only built 2 boats- a midwest and a billing- found the billing very short of instructions, and it was very fustrating to "piece it together". could you evaluate a graupner build considering my skill level.?
thanks
Joe

Hi Joe,

All I can say about Graupner kits is that you must follow the instructions very carefully and always plan ahead. The plans and instruction are very easy to follow. Graupner does not advertise this build as being a difficult one.

The following is from Cornwall Model Boats description:

Glasgow Ref: 2410
R/C side-wheel-paddle tug. Semi-scale model design for single electric motor or steam-engine drive. 4 channels. Quickie kit with moulded hull.

Product information
This model of the paddler tug GLASGOW has been designed to 1:40 scale using English drawings.
The scarce information available on the history and career of this tug indicates that it was mainly operated in ports of Northern England and Scot-land. The modeller has the option of powering his model with an electric motor or - just like the fullsize vessel - with a steam engine.
All difficult to fashion parts, such as hull, paddle wheel covers, life boat, skylights, companionways, pressure vents etc. are moulded of ABS plastic. The wood parts all come profusely pre-shaped. Building time is further shortened by the many injection-moulded ABS plastic parts of the set of fittings (No. 582), such as winch anchor, bollards, davits, engine room telegraph etc., as well as the brass rail stanchions.

Contents of the Quickie kit
Quickbuild plan with R/C installation and imprinted building instructions in Dutch, English, French and German. Extruded hull, wheel covers, life boat, skylights, companionways, pressure vents and other ABS plastic moulded parts, printed and die-cut wood parts, such as bulkheads, deck superstructures, bridge deck etc., moldings, dowels, wire, eye pins, belaying pins, decals, miscellaneous parts.

R/C functions
Rudder Forward - stop - reverse Infinitely variable speed control
Specification
Length o.a. 1010 mm Width (beam) 388 mm Width (excl. paddle boxes) 200 mm Height 424 mm Draught 65 mm A. u. weight, incl. R/C gear 6.2 kg Weight, empty (without drive system, power supply and R/C gear) 1.8 kg Scale 1:40

Hope this helps,

Iran
