    (Yacht) Graupner Carina
    my 2nd graupner Carina, with a modern appearance (9/10)
    (Yacht) "juliette"
    original Graupner carina named "juliette" the 1st one I built. wanted to be a classic model. (9/10)
    (Yacht) DMI 'Pirat"
    Classic modell, in the 70's sold under the name DMI pirat. a full wooden sailboat without RC controls. the keel was extended to improve stability. In the 90's the wooden strips from the hull were so dried out, that I had to fill it complete with epoxy and sprayed the uniform 'baby blue'color. After a long period in the attic , it saw daylight again and the sails needed to be replaced. Now it is a static model with sailing capacities. (7/10)
    (Yacht) robbe smaragd
    A top sailboat from the Robbe collection, the big lady also referred to. adjusted sails to look more original and keel weight added to improve stablilty (5/10)

    here is my Robbe Sirius, the Stock maritime tuned version.
    I traded an iphone 5c for this model.
    it was in a used state without any working electronics.
    Completely removed all electronics, stickers and rigg and started with sanding.
    resprayed the hull in oyster 'pearl metalic' and started building up with new fittings , electronics etc
    Sails like a beauty !

    here is my 2nd Graupner Carina ( after the 1st one I just wanted to built another one and Ebay supplied - again- a 'barely started' set.
    Taking apart the glued wooden parts was a bit of a challenge. However, the previous owner used cheap glue and all the parts could be dismounted without any damage.
    (will post more pictures of the rebuilt )
