Graupner Premier Line ARTR
« on: April 30, 2015, 07:59:40 am »

Good morning all,
Has anyone here had any experience with these boats ?
I'm wondering what paint has been used on them, ( a repainted possible with acrylics? )
Their longevity and robustness , and general quality .
Any comments ?

From what I've seen they're very good! They still seem to be plugging on with brushed motors and on their big yacht I don't think much of the motor mounts but aside from that! Which are you thinking about getting?

Thankyou Tom,
I've found the Flower Class at a more reasonable price

Well I have the Bismarck looks good but not seen water yet . My PT596 goes well looks good but the  fittings are too brittle  they are better on the Italeri version.Mind you I think perhaps a different team make them now as I also have the Robbe dusseldorf and put money on it being the same team.Whilst the Dusseldorf not too expensive  premium line no way

On all of these check the drag in the shafts.
My Prinz Eugen pulled over 10 amps in AIR.
Cleaned out the shafts and regreases 4 amps.
