    I believe this to be a 1939's Pond boat, not sure any help with dating vessel would be appreciated.
    It's 63" tall and 8 1/2" wide.

    Hi Dave976!
    I am happy to pass this on, I am allowed to do so because the Graupner company no longer exists.
    I enclose the two main plans as a PDF, but without guarantee.For cutouts I have an DIN A3 printer which is sufficient to produce small details. (Din A3 = 11.7 x 16.5")
    Have fun folks!
    Greets Mike
    PS:The size is for large format
    DIN A0 (33.1 x 46.8")
    or DIN A1 (23.4 x 33.1")
    Designation and language is German

    I agree this has all the hallmarks of a typical pond yacht. Possibly a bit earlier than you think but I am looking from a UK viewpoint and things may have been different in the USA.
    I have a similar pond yacht and it sails really well. Seems to be penty of room to fit RC if that is your plan but you could use it as a free sail model if you have a suitable pond. The running to the other side would also give you plenty of exercise๐Ÿ‘
    Please share your plans for this piece of history and thank you for sharing

    Hello Firefite!
    That's where I think I see Graupner's optimists. . look at my pictures in my harbour.
    The torso looks similar to that of the Optimist. I had built it in 1977, but after the break in model making (my 4 children wanted baby houses, the other car garages) I packed them up well after years, but got them from the attic, but dusty. As a pensioner I now have time until my "departure". . (black humor) ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

    ps: Do you need plans??
