We completed the DGzRS '9.5-meter lifeboat based on a Graupner kit.
Instead of the red color that appears on the kit, the paint was naturally painted in RAL3024 fluorescent red.

Instead of the bright orange decorations for the SAR lettering, plotted logos are used in the correct color.
In addition, we did not paint the circumferential fender in red, but in the original color, and again did not use the decorations included in the daylight orange with the kit, but after a few tries attached "real" straps in silver or white aluminum.

We are almost a little proud of the final optical result, despite the fact that we largely do not use etched and other upgrade parts.

Sometimes you just have to take a closer look in the workshop and let your imagination run wild! Then you will also find the suitable materials for such replicas.

The model was then refined in the finish with ropes, other long fenders, painted life jackets, rigging and a protective net wound above the bulkhead.
