Hi - a long time ago Arrow5 asked if any of the kits sold to the UK were on show.  Judging from the reponse I guess the answer was no. Well, I need to practice sending pictures to this forum so here are pictures of mine which is still a work in progress  - might even finish it one day.

The quality of the kit was first class. It's a pity their manufacture came to an end.

As you can see, mine is the basic model - same as the one built by Aurigarius himself.

Nice to see another Kit-Springer again :)

I get asked quite regularly, where to purchase one of these Aurigarius Springer-Kits.
They are no longer available and most probably will not get into production any more.
The reasons for this are mentioned in this thread.

So it's probably a good idea to turn this thread into a normal one and no longer have it pinned in this forum. (Admins are you reading this?) ;-)

But there is hope for everyone, not willing to scratch-build one.
German manufacturer Aeronaut just announced a Springer-Kit on this years toy-fair in Nuremberg.

http://www.aero-naut.de/produkte/schiffsmodellbau/schiffsmodelle/kommerzielle-schifffahrt/ramborator.html

I don't know anything about prices and availability and the page is all in German, but I can tell you it is according to the international rules. It will be available in the shop and online shop I work for now as soon as it is available from Aeronaut.

I am at the Aeronaut-booth in Nuremberg on sunday and hope to get more details then.

Hello Aurigarius,
 
fantastic, what a brilliant idea for both beginners and experienced model boat operators and builders.
At last an entry or quick build kit aimed directly at all levels of model boaters.
I wish you great success in your future production venture.
Could you please let me know the cost of one of your kits.
regards
Jim

Jim....sorry to be the bearer of bad news but Aurigarius but he is not a member of this forum anymore......One of the best Kits that is available for a beginner is the Aeronaut Ramberator and is around 70

If you cut & paste this;
Ramborator Springer Tug Aeronaut Aero-Naut NEU&OVP 

eBay item number:
401031734523

into google search you will get a German company selling them on the German e-bay. at about 55 for the kit & 11 for the shipping, much much cheaper than the 100 plus that I've seen them for sale in the UK I bought 2 (1 for a friend) to split the shipping costs.[/size]  :-))
