Towing made easy
The tractor Pollux was built 1963 in Bremerhaven. The Pollux has 170 BRT, a length of 28 meters, a width of 8 meters, draft 3.5 meters and is powered by two engines with 1350 hp. The tractor creates 12.3 knots and has 17 t of stakes.
After the merger with Hapag-Lloyd, the Pollux (2) came to Ijmuiden in 1992. There the tractor was converted, but not renamed.
The Graupner Pollux 2 is a true replica of this tractor in 1: 100 scale. The model is a completely revised version of the successful ship model from the 1990s. From reworked materials, components manufactured in state-of-the-art processes and the highest level of detail, the Pollux tugboat is a special highlight.
The EasyBuild-Up kit is easy to assemble even for beginners - thanks to the precise manufacture of all milling and etching parts as well as CNC milled parts. Only for the railings and some superstructures as well as the rudder and the Stevenrohr still holes have to be drilled. The model is designed for easy installation of all components and offers enough space for all RC components as well as special functions, such as light and sound effects.
Remarkable is the high detail of the model. The hull is protected by 16 tire fenders. The fuselage, superstructures and masts are made of extra strong plastic, doors and the rail made of photo-etched brass parts. The cable winches and fittings are manufactured by resin molding.
Included in the set
The set includes a mounting base for the RC components, a brass steve-pipe tube, a propeller and a powerful 400-brush electric motor. The Graupner Pollux II comes already with LEDs for the mast lighting. A high-quality wooden ship stand for the model, even if it is not driven,it is always in the best light.
