Need Advice On Robbe Dusseldorf Fireboat by fryer1966 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 8 years ago
hI guys about the dusseldorf I would follow the advice about bonding the deck just to be safe from water entering and safe gaurding the electrics I will bee Installing mine on a self made ledge on the upper deck just beneth the cabin Its a bit messy but once the cabins back on It will look ok ive got all the switch and sound modual "dont wanna get those wet lol" just got to figure out the battery arrange ments for the cran and anchor now I was going to use the main motor batteries which I have two of @6v each but worried about run time on the model Its self any Ideas ????? lets me know

hI steve yep will go with the halfords enamels they seem to be the best suited for the job I did my pt 15 with them and It turned out ok with a coiple of coats of clear laquer like you suggested got justabout all the bits for the boat now "its cost a fortune" with all the robbe radio gear and electrics but the next boat I will source alternatives which having browsed the net are very easily obtainable I think Im going to do a vosper by nautical marines looks a great kit. well I hope to attend the next funday there only two waters around here one Is shared with boaters and another Is club membership so I guess Ill join them Im new to the boat thing mainly done helis,tanks,trucks and cars but I seem to enjoy the boat thing more "getting old I guess"anyway thanks for responding see you sometime kurt

hI love the finish on the dusseldorf could you tell me what paints you used please would be most appriciated thank you kurt fryer1966

by fryer1966 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 9 years ago
hI gregory building one of these myself with all the bits " I hope will work " my only thing Is what types of paint did you use and colours I was told halfords enamels but want to get a wider opinion on this by the way boat look great wanted to attend funday with my dusseldorf but Its no where near finished so I guess next year anyway thanks for reading hope to hear from you kurt davies

reversing switch by fryer1966 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 9 years ago
hI all can anyone tell me If there Is a good reversing switch I can use on my dusseldorf boat which will operate the anchor motor and crane as the one that robbe uses Is difficult to obtain as well as expensive thank you fryer1966

by fryer1966 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 9 years ago
hI gregory thanks for comments on my pt 15 I am just starting my dusseldorf boat and I think I will scrap the crane thats In the kit and get a more realistic one I dont find some of the Instructions nor parts on this kit very good considering the price so I will do a bit of adjusting to make It look a bit better I hope. I hope to complete It In time for the fun day In sept "fingers crossed"
