I have just purchased an already built model of the paddle tug Glasgow. I was going over it, and a few bits struck me as odd. The paddles seem to be on back to front, the row boat seems to be on the wrong side, and the paddle covers are stuck down, making maintenance all bar impossible. I was wondering if anyone had maybe a set of instructions, or a manual, that I could borrow or get copies of. I'm having real trouble finding anything on the net, apart from, out of stock, out of production. Hoping someone can help. Best wishes, Dave W

Hi Dave,
Just Google Graupner paddle tug Glasgow and you'll get hundreds of hits to look at!
Here an example with many pics and tips. Also shows the boat on port side.
Some close up pics of what you think is wrong would help us to track them down. Cheers, Doug 😎

Hi Doug. I've actually done that, which is why I asked on here. There are no pics of the paddles in diagram form that I can use to compare mine to. Someone must have an old set maybe from years ago. I even thought of writing to Graupner themselves, as it's a classic kit, but they went broke a few years ago. So now I don't know if the new owners will have the records. Anyway, I'll give it a go. Thanks again Doug.
Cheers, Dave 😊

Hi Dave, Graupner didn't go defunct!
They teamed up with JR in Korea to save the best bits of the company.
Happy hunting👍
Cheers, Doug 😎
