You can get Google to translate the web site. Its quite good at German to English. Click Language Tools on the Google homepage, then post the URL into the box and select your languages.

Rats- I know Elde Modellbau well. Their kits are really recomendable, the fittings very well detailed and brass-casted. Though, quality has it?s price and they are not cheap. If you need to have more informations, please contact me and I will try to find further details for you.

Happy modeling,

Hi. I build the tug Molay idris a couple of years ago. very nice kit not cheap but well worth it. ordering another one by the end of the month for a friend of mine, he likes the ST. Charles. I am keen and saving up for my winter project the Ile de Luminaere it is a big one. If you need help than E-mail me at bosunslocker666@btinternet.com will try to get discount if i can. I know Elde very well meet up with them in dortmund every year.Wanted to import the kits in to england but as I mentioned before the are not cheap that why did not bother to order some to drag around the shows rather have the money in the bank and earn interesst. But a number of modellers ordered them through me. I dont take a cut, you pay to them and not through me as a middleman. Regards wolfie. You find a link on my homepage to Elde.

Hi, the kits are complete with grp hull all timbers,propshaft,rudder,tiller and a very large and good fitting set. There is a fullsize plan but no instructions in english only some sketches regarding the superstructure but it is a easy build even for the less experience modeller. A friend of mine just ordered 2 through me the Loire and Saint Charles. Got him 10% discount. Regards Wolfie.

Hi. Good job i speak german, the price is completeley wrong, Retail including post from germany is in Euros 1643,95 less 10% if i get in touch with Elde. ( I dont make a penny out of it) I think the last person who send a reply forgot to add the fitting set. There is also a extra cost because it is not included in the kit, it is the propshaft and the propeller, the shaft is a work of art with adjusters and ballbearings but some modellers like to fit a standart cheap run of the mill shaft to save money. It will add about 100 something euro to the totalcost. Regards Wolfie.
