Hello - and can you help a newbie
« on: April 17, 2013, 04:58:01 PM »

Hi All
I'm absolutely new to model boats - having been given the remains of a 1960s boat model by Graupner.  It features a primitive remote control system - the Kinematic.  The instructions I have are in German so I'm a bit stuck!  Any help, advice, pointers anyone can give me would be very welcome.  I'd love to restore this lovely old model boat.  Thanks.

as said up to date electrics. make things much simpler and probably more reliable.
