Has anyone used Kagelmacher
« on: August 09, 2014, 20:58:58 »
Just curious if anyone has used them lately?

I'm sure someone mentioned having difficulty getting through or having problems with the supply from the manufacturer.

Regards

Mr. Kagelmacher had a heavy car accident some time ago as far as I remember. He had to close his shop completely. Now the shop is open again and should be as good as before the closing.
I only have personal experience from before the closing and everything was OK then.

Thanks Volker,

For some reason it did not show scale or dimensions in English translated page.

Can I assume that 150 is the height from keel to the rear deck??

Many thanks again

She looks quite a substantial Hull,
Looks a lot like Typhoon/Tempest.

Has anyone built a model of her??

Quite a nice looking beast to,

Always liked the Ocean going that's
Has anyone built a kit or bought from kagel any idea regarding quality etc?

I had a look at SMB to at there Singapore/Rotterdam, But it's to big for the car
And I really fancy an ocean going tug.
