Graupner kit, bought 2nd hand from a Dutch model shop situated opposite the shipyard who built the full sized boat, Jules Verne. The chap who commissioned the full sized boat was German, he also commissioned the model on a visit to the yard. He went bankrupt, the 2 items lay dormant for some time then, an American bought the full size job and continued with the construction. When finished the boat was sailed to the USA, she rests in Los Angeles(last info I had) - bought the just started kit, stripped back to basics, and slowly completed it, with colour scheme changes also a name change but still with a science fiction link -- living here in France it was me thumbing my nose at the frenchies!! Has working lights and radar. An excellent competition boat, finished 2nd in the 2019 Brittany / Pays de Loire championship, quite an achievement as I am not in the least competitive!
