Hi Doug! When I purchased the then Robbe Neptune. I sure could have used you. Some 30-35 yrs ago! to translate the instructions they came in German! It took a bit of doing. translating but, I built the model!

krick romarin "ex robbe" by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
The Robbe factory was sold off probably with most of the moulds and equipment when the company got into difficulties. There are some kits available and Cornwall Model Boats stock the available range. I would check the Krick site for their postal charges to the UK. The demise of Robbe and Graupner was a big set back for model makers universally and its a pity many of the resources were lost before a rescue was possible. I agree with Doug E-Bay does have them listed occasionally and I have seen them at Model Boat Shows bring and buy sales. CADMA is possibly the next show (2nd - 3rd Jun), the Mutual Model Boat club appears to have moved to September not forgetting The Model Boat Convention on 25th - 26th August.

krick romarin "ex robbe" by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 days ago
Hi fryer Krick Modelltechnik bought out Robbe and rebranded their boat stuff as 'roMarin' - "The ship model division of Robbe Modellsport has been owned by Krick Modelltechnik since summer 2015. The former Robbe products will be marketed from 2016 under the brand "romarin by krick"." Düsseldorf (or Duesseldorf!) currently listed as 'Not in stock/Currently not available', 'Delivery time: On request'. €249 approx 200quid + shipping. You might find one on Fleabay in the meantime. Krick Viel Spaß damit, 😎Doug

robbe japanese torpedo boat by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Bought one of these years ago. Another project I really need to progress. Seeing the built item confirms that it does make into a realistic model

Aerokits fire boat 35" by kevgermany Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
I' doing somehthing very similar, rebuilding one from the 60s, when I get time to finish it. I picked up a Brushless outrunner, Robbe/Roxxy Outrunner 4240/10 - is this about right? - Will it be OK with a 4S/5000mAh lipo? - What prop would you suggest to start with?

robbe neptun tug boat by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Nutrunner, It's a great little tug, good response from the kort nozzle! I built one over 30 yrs ago! Good memories! I used a 7.2 volt NiCad back then. It ran for hours on one battery!

Andree v by ChrisG Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 10/10] 32"/5000g Andree v Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 60mins Single Propellor (4 Blade 50mm) Geared to a 919d series 4.5-15v (4 Blade) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 3Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Viper 15 (15Amps) ESC - Comments: Purchased as an abandoned project, in fact not even started, price reflected this as it was cheap. It is a Robbe St Germain I believe no longer available. This is about the eighth model I have built and I reckon the most rewarding, lots of opportunities to personalise the ship. Lack of plans from the seller made the manufacture of this planked hull, a challenge. She looks lovely on show at home and is a dream on the water with no problem in very rough water. If you find one for sale go for it.

Classic by Tica Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 9/10] 22"/1000g Classic Single Propellor (3 Blade 30mm) Direct Drive to a Graupner Compact 260Z 1380KV (3 Blade) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) 2Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Graupner 18A (10Amps) ESC - Comments: This is a aero-naut Classic and I would say that it's a second revision, as there has been changed several items, compared with the one my wife build 3 years ago. 1: The wind shield is now fixed in slots in the deck and not just glued to the edge of the cockpit opening. 2: There are now padding and leather for the seat included. 3: There are a few etched details for the instrumentation, steering wheel and step plates for the deck. 4: There are notches at the break off parts that will help in fixing the sides when gluing them in place. I used the same set-up as my wife's which is: Graupner BL Compact 260Z 1380KV with a Graupne ESC 18A FWD and REV. The shaft is replaced with a Robbe 4mm (no 1442) as the one provided is a flimsy part that will not withstand the motor set-up. Prop is a 33mm Graupner racing item. It will be running on LiPo 2S but if one need a rocket it can run on 3S. Great fun to build and performs great on the water
