Sea King helicopter and sea cruiser - an unbeatable team
"We go out when others come in" - this is the courageous motto of the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS).
For more than 150 years, the fleet of rescue cruisers and boats has been kept on course exclusively through donations. For the SAR service (SAR = Search and Rescue) in the North Sea and Baltic Sea, the German Navy and the DGzRS work closely together: The former provides the Sea King helicopters and a crew of two pilots, an on-board mechanic and one or more paramedics. The DGzRS provides support with sea cruisers, usually with a crew of four.
DGzRS BERLIN - important 27.5-metre class rescue cruiser
The extremely detailed model kit of the unique multi-purpose fighter Tornado GR.4 with the special farewell decoration (the sign of the 31st of the RAF) is captivating andUntil it was replaced by a 28-metre-class ship of the same name in 2017, the DGzRS BERLIN was actively engaged in SAR operations in German territorial waters.
Many stories testify to the performance of the compact cruiser, which can glide through the oﬀen sea at a top speed of 23 kilometres and a displacement of 103 tonnes.
Equipped with a daughter schiﬀ named Steppke, the rescue cruiser impressed with reliable ocean-going capability in wind and weather
Westland SeaKing Mk.41 - legendary veteran of the German Navy
The Westland SeaKing Mk.41 was built until 1995. With 3,400 hp total power, a maximum range of around 1,500 kilometres and a maximum abﬂucted weight of nine tonnes, Sea King helicopters are still in service today in many countries around the world.
The Westland SeaKing Mk.41 was originally designed as a multi-purpose transport helicopter for military missions. The robust helicopter is equipped with high-tech radar and infrared camera. It is cleared for take-off even in extremely bad weather.
The impressive helicopter performs one task particularly well: rescuing people from distress at sea. For the daring mission manoeuvres on the high seas, a built-in winch is normally used. Constructed as an amphibious helicopter with a special hullﬀorm and boom, the helicopter can also land on the water. At sea, integrated floats provide the necessary buoyancy for the Rotorﬂugzeug in the event of such an emergency landing.
Tinkering and playing fun in a double pack - a coveted gift for discerning hobbyists
SAR helicopter and sea cruiser call for the painting and assembly of a total of 311 individual parts. With loving details such as the daughter boat "Steppke" in the stern hull, the rescue cruiser DGzRS BERLIN as built in 1985 awaits the ceremonial christening at the end.
Standby, the helicopter's movable main and tail rotor awaits its first mission in SAR service.
No matter whether the ready-built models are used for exciting role-playing games on the high seas or placed in the showcase as a tribute to the Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiﬀbrüchiger: In any case, the model builder can be proud when he has completed his model works. After all, this is a Revell level 4 construction set, which already requires a high degree of concentration and manual dexterity.
