would you recommend the Robbe Schnellboot???
« on: August 05, 2006, 12:02:21 PM »

I have been looking around for a future project, and i was looking at the Robbe Schnellboot which is based on an S class. I know from looking on the web that a number of people have had problems working with fitting the injection moulded parts, the main problem finding a flexible filler that is impact resistant and easy to sand and paint.
If anyone has had a go at one of these models, and can advise me on the pro's and con's of the kit, and recommended materials???

Thanks in advance!

Hi Voyager
It was nice to meet you last week.
One of our members has a S130 it is fantastic it looks the muts nuts.
the major problem is around the torpedo tubes its as you say getting the right stuff that sands and is flexible.S130 owner does not come down very often but he will be at the regatta on 3rd September or i can give you his contact details via a PM.
cheers

Hi Garry,

Thanks for replying quickly! Yes it was nice meeting you, now i know what you look like. Just in the process of charging my batteries for a Black Park run tomorrow. I beleive i may have seen the guy in question some time ago at your lake, from what i remember the boat performed very well indeed.
It would be great if you could send me his details.

If you have a look on the "builds" part of the webiste you will find Martin's blow by blow account of his trials and tribulations with this kit.
