The Graupner crab-fishing cutter TÖN 12 KRABBE is a fishing vessel mainly operated in the North Sea. It is specifically designed for fishing crabs and carries a special type of purpose-designed rigging for the job. The large fishing nets are carried by two outrigger booms, heaved up almost to the mast during the run to the fishing grounds.
The model is scaled down to 1:25 scale from original plans and so configured as to satisfy even the most demanding modeller. The moulded hull contained in the kit, as well as the rudder- and keel shells and the crab cooking gear of touch plastic plus many injection-moulded plastic parts simplify the completion of the model and shorten the time requiring for building it. Equipped with its properly matched E-motor the model travels commendably fast.
