The Graupner SAR SK32 Harro Koebke is part of our premium line of beautifully detailed and precision-cut Easy Build Kits that will not disappoint you. This kit comes with all the parts laser precut and primed ready for paint. Assembly requires only standard tools and basic model building experience. This model is basic enough that experienced builders have plenty of options to make custom changes and add additional features to increase and enhance the overall appearance and functionality of the ship. For reliability, performance, further telemetry and model-specific function expansion we highly recommend a Graupner radio such as the mc-16.
The Graupner Easy Build Line are distinguished in the industry by high-quality materials, extreme level of details and a thorough pre-production level setup. The detailed CNC machined components shorten the lengthy and difficult work steps, making our models ideal for beginners and experts alike. The model consists of a glass fiber-reinforced hull (GRP), numerous lasered or deep drawn deck and body parts made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), additional realism provided by photo-etched brass parts, numerous small-milled parts and a very extensive decoration set made of water transfer foil.
The SAR Harro Koebke comes with daughter boat Notarius. This dinghy is without function or drive, but can easily be equipped by the experienced model builder.
The SAR SK32 Harro Koebke is a rescue/salvage ship of the German Maritime Rescue Service. Built in 2012 by the Fassmer shipyard in Berne, the boat belongs to the new 20-meter class of the distress cruisers especially designed for near-shore and shallow-water use. Its daughter boat, Notarius, is among a newly developed line of Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIB) that are faster than their predecessors and come with a closed deckhouse.
The SAR Harro Koebke is currently in service patrolling the Baltic Sea; her movements can be followed using any number of marine traffic websites! She is part of a traditional fleet of rescue ships who customarily determines every January 6th whether the Weser River flows or has frozen over.
RC radio, batteries, paint, glue, basic building materials and tools are not included.
