Graupner Wiesel Motor Torpedo Boat 1:40 (G2145.V2)

Graupner Wiesel Motor Torpedo Boat 1:40

Graupner Wiesel Motor Torpedo Boat 1:40

The motor torpedo boats of the Zobel class are slightly improved versions of the Jaguar class vessels, and were launched in the year 1961. After just 8 years the four torpedo tubes were replaced by two stern torpedo tubes, and at the same time an improved radar system was installed. These modifications brought the boats up to the standard required for altered service requirements. In the early 1980's the boats were de-commissioned and sold, some to the Turkish navy (among them the Wiesel), the remainder to other owners; the worn-out vessels ended their days as target ships.

Graupner prepared their model of the Wiesel to a scale of 1:40 based on original drawings and documents, with particular emphasis on good detailing of the superstructure. Special high detail 40 mm guns are available as optional accessories, and installing these weapons gives the boat an even more impressive appearance.

All the parts which are difficult to make, including the hull, bridge, deck superstructure etc., are supplied in the kit as vacuum-mouldings, and this makes construction of the model much easier. Most of the wooden parts are supplied die-cut to save even more time.

A comprehensive fittings set is included as standard, and the many injection-moulded and brass parts in it help to produce a visually imposing model with relatively little manual effort. The decal sheet now includes the names and NATO numbers of all the 10 motor torpedo boats of the Zobel class, which means that it is possible for a club to produce an entire motor torpedo boat squadron. The hull offers ample space to accommodate a comprehensive RC system. The RC installation plan shows the position of the receiving system together with some of the optional auxiliary working systems. It is also possible to install the super-detailed 40 mm guns available as optional accessories (Order No. G320) instead of the standard weapons included in the kit.

The recommended electric motors (Speed 500E x3) are well matched to the size of model, and the boat is capable of an exciting performance on the water. The model is fairly demanding in terms of construction and operation, so it is only intended for experienced modellers. The new version of the kit includes completely revised instructions and plans, and construction is further simplified by the addition of vacuum-moulded parts for the torpedo tubes and life-jackets. The kit now also includes shaft systems, propellers, rudder systems and all fittings (previously available in a separate fittings set) plus additional wooden parts, including those for the boatstand.

Pack contents:
Quick-build plan, RC installation plan, illustrated instructions including RC installation notes in German, English and French, CNC-trimmed vacuum-moulded ABS hull and other parts including transom, bridge and deck superstructure, breakwater, inflatable boat, radome, torpedo tubes and other small items, printed and die-cut wooden parts, strip material, window glazing, tube, wire and rod, decal sheet, complete fittings set, propeller shafts, propellers, rudder systems, RC installation hardware and small items.

Rudder
Proportional speed control (forward / reverse)
Additional functions can be installed at the builder's discretion, e.g. lighting, rotating radar antenna, twin rotating guns, sound module etc.
