Helgoland’s unusual hull alone makes this SWATH ship a very special model. The two torpedo like bodies are highly detailed and with propellers and rudder. The model can be build either as full hull or as a waterline model.
The countless details will make every experienced papermodellers heart beat quicker. With a bigger speed boat and small rubber dinghy, crane, winches and a lot of accessories on deck it will be great fun to build this model. But the mast might be the biggest challenge.
From this kit you can build either Helgoland or the sister ship Borkum. Those fine differences between the two ships are of course in the model as well. There are parts specially for one of the ships.
This particular model was the last model Peter Brandt was working on before he passed away. The design was finished by Andreas Jacobsen with much care and in the way Peter would have done it. Not only because of this the Helgoland will have a special place in the HMV range.
The model highlights:
- SWATH hull
- detailed speed boat
