The model was developed with the help of all available drawings and many pictures. The kit consists of a large, stable ABS hull with milled openings for portholes and scuppers. The deck and the complete superstructure are made from laser parts made of ABS and wood. All parts are lasered to fit perfectly. The many fittings complete the appearance of the Greundiek. Although the original was used as a model for the kit and its equipment, the model also offers enough options to create your own version of the Greundiek.
The model is driven by a 28mm brushless motor, e.g. actro-n 28-4-880 with 2S LiPo. The appropriate controller is actro-marine 30. Alternatively, our Race 620 Navy with the Multi 25 controller can be used as a brush motor. An optional equipment with light and sound is of course possible.
