Hi all,

 new member just joined the forum, my hobbying background till recently has been a mixture of OO gauge model railways and chiefly RC gliders of which I am still very much in to.

I have joined this forum as I have always had an interest in RC boats of all kinds and have built a couple of model boats in my youth from free plans I obtained.

As a an adolescent I used to visit my grandparents house which was a bus ride and a short walk from the bus station, on this walk I regularly detoured past a local model shop in the town of Ashton Under Lyne where my grandparents lived and i would start in the windows almost lusting after the boxes of kits etc in the window.

1 of those kits was the Graupner ADOLPH BERMPHOL, to me a very impressive looking Rescue Boat with a piggy back Daughter boat the VEGESACK.

Well 40 something years on I stumbled across this long gone kit and its daughter boat on a well known auction site and managed to secure the two kits.

My wife has offered to pay for the kit for my Christmas present this year so its arrived and been put away after inspecting obviously, it appears to be completely intact and untouched.

So I will in due course be posting a few questions as I'm new to marine modeling and hoping to get a little advice along the way to help me progress this kit.

Cheers All

Welcome to the quieter side of life.

I used to go in that shop every week looking for something new. A sad day when it was bulldozed, there was no reason to go to Ashton ever again.

Hi Shaunty,
Bermpohl is one of the very few german rescue boats I haven't seen personally, but I have some background and a pile of books about these. So if you have questions just ask, I'll try to help from germany.
