ARTR (Almost Ready To Run)
Scale model of the first sea rescue cruiser featuring the current configuration (tower superstructure and separate daughter boat for shallow water operations). All subsequent cruisers have been built to the same layout.
A total of four ships of the Theodor Heuss class have been built.
On 12.02.1957 the cruiser was christened with the name of the German Federal President of the time, Theodor Heuss.
The daughter boat was christened Tedje, which is the North German diminutive of the first name Theodor.
The Theodor Heuss remained in service from 1957 to 1963 at Borkum, and from 1963 to 1985 at Laboe. The cruiser was subsequently sold, and is still sailing today as a motor yacht under the name Frido Spatz.
The daughter boat has also been in private ownership since 1996, and is due to sail again after restoration.
Previously it was set up as a display exhibit in front of the Norddeich rescue hangar.
The Theodor Heuss which is on display in the German Museum in Munich is the renamed sister ship H.H. Meier.
Top-quality model with superb detailing.
