I builded this kit 14 years ago, still is in excellent condition, one of my funny ships. It is shame, Graupner stops production

i already have the the smit nederland and the brooklyn tug and it is taking all the willpower i have to keep from going to walmart and getting a couple more tables and starting on them, that would be 5 builds going at 1 time. and what is really bad, i am always looking for good deals on more kits.

thanks tim, but i have a lot to learn. i just got into the boats about a year ago when i went to a lake and seen a guy with a tugboat and that was all it took. i went home and got on ebay and found me a aquacraft tugboat for $200. the following week i was at the lake again with my tug. then i found this site and seen the boats you guys were building, so i thought i would build me a amsterdam tug.so that is how it all got started.
