Graupner Pollux Freelance Design Tug 1:100 Scale Kit for Radio Control
This model is a freelance design of one of those tugs which can be found in any port. Despite her small dimensions (1:100th scale) Pollux is capable of tugging larger model ships and provides a most realistic impression.
Adequate space is available inside the hull for the accommodation of R/C equipment having normal dimensions; so there's no need for miniaturization of parts. Thanks to its moulded hull and extruded superstructures the model can be easily and quickly assembled.
Quickbuild plan with R/C installation, illustrated building instructions in Dutch, English, French and German. Moulded hull, superstructures, steering house with funnel, bridge and mast of ABS plastic. Die-cut wood parts, rudder shaft, decals miscellaneous plastic parts.
Forward - stop - backwards
Infinitely variable speed control
Length: 358 mm
Width: 114 mm
Draught: 40 mm
All up Weight: 620 g
Displacement (less R/C gear): 200 g
