Product Description
Parts in "Strong & Flexible" material to complete the model of the cruise ship "MS Arkona", the former German "Traumschiff" as seen on TV, in 1:200 scale. Due to the large size of the model, the hull needs to be printed in two parts which are to be joined to complete the model.
  • rudder and rudder levers
  • propshafts for static display model
  • parts for bow thruster
  • (all parts on a sprue)

To complete the cruise ship, six different sets of 3D prints are needed:
  • Arkona, Hull - Front End
  • Arkona, Hull - Rear End
  • Arkona, Superstructure
  • Arkona, Details
  • Arkona, Propulsion (this set)
  • Arkona, Tender


Size of the completed model:
  length:        82.2 cm
  width:         12.6 cm

The MS Arkona was originally built as the MS Astor in 1981 and renamed MS Arkona in 1985. It is most well-known for its appearance in the German TV Series "Traumschiff" (in 1983/84) and the DFF TV series "Luv und Lee" (in 1990).
The MS Arkona sailed from 1985 onwards under a GDR flag until the reunification in 1990, mostly in the Baltic and the Caribbean around Cuba. In 2002, it was renamed MS Astoria and later sold again, being renamed Quest for Glory and then Saga Pearl II.

Technical data of the original:
  length:      164.4 m
  width:         22.6 m
  propulsion: 4 diesel engines of 3300 kW

The model is designed in 1:200 scale. It is set up to be built as a functional model with radio control. However, it can also be built as a static model for display. In addition to the propulsion system and steering, the bow thruster can be made operational. An assembly manual, a set of drawings and further informations can be found on my website (download section):http://www.microboathobby.com/  

To complete the RC model, additional components are needed:
  • one  servo for steering
  • two motors of RE-280 type for main propulsion
  • two shafts (2mm diameter) in 4mm tubes (Graupner 1229)
  • two propeller of no more than 25mm diameter (recommended: Raboesch 148-45 and 148-46)
  • RC equipment of your choice


For the bow thruster, additional gears and a motor are needed (see manual).
