Hi Rus
        Nice model you have there, gives me inspiration to do something with the one I acquired some 10 years ago. FYI a friend of mine went to Germany when these boats were in service, the funny thing he said was that the real boats looked more model like than the models. What he was implying was they were pristine and highly polished. Strange that considering we allways imagine some weathering of some sort should be applied to models in general. Funny old world!!

Regards Rob.

There is no recovery system on this one it was built as a static originally so the stern door is fixed in position.

Go to www.movietone.com and see story No: 61559 (you will need to register), a smaller lifeboat doing it's stuff including launch and recovery of the daughter vessel. Beware though, once you start browsing this (and the Pathe) site you will become hooked.

Fantastic boat there Phil, i still have some detailing to do on mine and looking at yours i think i have made my lettering a tad to big  :(

Where did you get the figures from, scale looks spot on.

Russ they are make by a company called Preiser the part Number is 57806 they are a set of 7 firemen at 1:24 scale which you can make up and paint, just mod them a bit to suit the Adolph.
Just found them at this web address http://www.gaugemaster.co.uk and in stock on page 3 of the preiser page at £8.50.

Hi sorry to be a pest but I'm looking at buying an Adolph bermphol kit as I've been offered one but I was wondering if anyone could explain how the boat retrieval system works for her daughter boat?

Is it some sort of pulley system and rollers as I can't seem to find any good pics or details of the workings


Thanks

Jay,

The retrieval system on the kits and as supplied as a fittings kit dates back to the late 60's early 70's when the boat was first kitted by Graupner, I think under a different name, but still the same ship, and had a polystyrene foam hull

The system works by having a long screw thread the length of the open compartment when the superstructure is removed. Attached to the screw system is just a length of wire with a loop on the end, that sticks out of the superstructure at the base of the funnel, The loop as far as I can remember is only needed for retrieval, launch is by gravity, when the tailgate drops. When lifting the daughter boat, it is steered into the drop door rear well, the wire with the loop on the end comes out and catches hold of the small bollard on the front deck of the daughter boat, which is then pulled up the ramp. The motion of the rear door closing should then push the daughter boat forwards and disconnect the loop, ready for the next launch.

Things have progressed a lot since then, and much more efficient designs for retrieval have been discovered, ranging from like a conveyor system that raises and lowers the daughter boat, to the use of a sail winch on a closed loop system. All much more compact and less intrusive into the main working compartment.

I found all these methods by trolling German web sites, just by searching for Adolph Bermphol. Unfortunately I sold my kit to a member on this site, and I think I gave him the web addresses with the info on. So if he is reading and doesn't mind showing who he is, he just might have the info already.

Hope this has helped.

Well just got the kit with all fittings and special function set and it looks like itís going to be a good build.
After seeing the parts for the special function kit and the boat retrieval system I think I will have to design and build something a bit special Iím thinking of maybe having some sort of conveyer belt or rotating rollers but will have to have a play and see what will work with a wet hull.

Thank

Jay,

I put this link in the other thread, this one looks more scale than any others that I have come across.

http://www.lippold.net/bermpohl.html

Everything that you need to design and make is on there, even a vid of it in operation. Of all the ones I have seen this looks the most realistic and accurate on the uplift.
