It took a long time but I have finished a small PDF-leaflet which lists all the different springer kits we have now.
It can be downloaded here: http://www.jutech.net/RCO-Springer-Kits_engl.pdf

More versions may be added later. The best selling version so far is our 'Wembley' kit.
All the kits only contain the wooden parts for the body and superstructure. No hardware, no glue, no electrics.

If you need any more information or pictures, don't hesitate to ask. ;)

It's time to show my Kit-Springer named PU(ni)SHER  :D
My own build had to wait so long because we were busy making the kit in different versions and developing it further top be able to sell it.
It is never really ready of course. It will get some more additional parts. Lighting, antenna, exhaust, towing-equipment, maybe sound and some more small bits and pieces.
And of course it will be aged and weathered, because that 'new-look' is much to clean for my liking.

Tech:
Model: RC-Onkel-Springer Tug, Version Standard - old Version (we made a simplyfied version of this one now)

Prop: 45mm 3-Blade, Graupner 2308.45
Shaft: Graupner 321
Rudder: Graupner 430.55
RC: Planet T5 2,4ghz 5ch.
Battery: 2x Panasonic 6V 3400mah lead, parallel
Motor: 600
Speedo: LRP Marine 12V
Servo: Graupner 505

Yes it is. Although we need a couple of days at the moment to make the kits because we cannot use the laser-cutter every day.

And my newer, bigger one from the kit Aurigarius wrote about.
No brushed motor anymore, but a smaller brushless one now.
I had to glue a part of a clear plastic card between the bumpers to
avoid the waves from cleaning the deck house... :}

Easy to build, easy to paint. Riggid and lightweight. I like it. :-))

Have had my first experiments with aging my Springer Tug (dry brushing)
Never did it before. Not too bad for the first time I think.

Done a little more detailing now. Flag, Mast (has to be painted) and exhaust (muffler from one of my old RC-Cars - doesn't need the aging-treatment, because it has lots of 'real-life aging'. :D




Next is the electronics department.

By the way: I would love to see what became of the springer kits I sent to some members of this forum. Do you have any pictures of your build to post here?

Hihoo,

it is no problem to send a kit to the USA. I did that before.

But at the moment I am not able to make new kits, because I have lost the opportunity to use the lasercutter I was using up until now.
I am looking for something new. But this should take a little time.

I hope to be back on track very soon. Any news will be reported here.

WARNING!!!
DO NOT let your wife, Daughter, or girlfriend see the springer kit!  (mine saw the kit, I tried to order one.) But now they are unavailable! So now the pressure is on to build HER one.  And she wants it NOW! >>:-(
