A removable motor mount is provided along with the electric motor, coupling propeller and shaft. A full set of fittings along plans and comperehensive building instructions comlete this excellent beginners kit.

Krick Felix
This model is a faithful replica of a Hamburg harbour launch. Used partly as a pure work and transport vehicle and partly as a tourist boat, almost everyone knows these pretty little launches, which are indispensable in the Port of Hamburg.

Felix was rebuilt according to original shipyard plans of a Hamburg harbour barge. The aim of this design was to develop a construction kit that combines the typical appearance with the simplest possible construction. This has resulted in a starter kit that has lost none of its original fidelity. This makes this kit an interesting piece even for experienced model builders, not least because of its popular 1:25 scale, which still leaves a lot of possibilities open for fine details.

The hull is deep-drawn from high-quality ABS plastic with integrally formed keel, so that the installation of stern tube and rudder offers no difficulties. A bead for the bottom plate and the waterline is also already marked on the fuselage, so that the beginner has no construction problems.
All deck and superstructure parts are carefully and accurately cut out with a laser beam and the simple plug-in system makes the construction extremely simple. Furthermore, various motor bulkheads for different motor variants are included and the motor can be easily removed together with the mounting bracket at a later date.
An electric motor with articulated coupling is already included as standard, together with a stern tube shaft and steering gear.
All illustrated fitting parts are already prefabricated from wood or plastic included in the kit. The detailed building instructions and a building plan are specially designed for beginners.
