Great Model, great pictures/video!

In my yard there are 5 hulls of these class awaiting completion ...
The Idea was to build them to represent the development of the class.
And the wrecks were cheap ...

So, pictures of nice models are always welcome!

Did you install prototypical 4-screw propulsion or the 3-screw propulsion suggested by Graupner?

I'm hoping to launch two of them early next year ... If my family gives me the time in the workshop ;-)


Best regards and have fun with this nice model,

Michael.

P.S. A "Schütze" fast minesweeper would be a nice companion ...! Same scale and era, great performance on the water.

Hello Michael,
glad you like it. I have another class 140 hull of SBW, too. I want to built a four screw Jaguar class boat. S32 WIESEL is 'only' the 3 screw Graupner model, but it's ok.

A 1/40 scale meeting between WIESEL and Schütze-class minesweeper PLUTO has taken place some weeks ago. Look about this Wink:

Hello Arne,

thanks again for the pictures!

They are a very welcome motivation to complete the work!

My Schütze-class minesweeper "Krebs" is undergoing an extensive refit and a little modernization ('70s and early '80s RC and propulsion) and will hopefully be back in the water in early spring.

I will post a few pictures when they are completed!


Best regards,

Michael.
