Wont be long before total shutdown ....

Lets be honest Graupner has never been a 'budget priced' company always trying to be a few notches up the ladder. Trouble is most people are looking at 'bang for the buck(euro in G's case) ...

The likes of Graupner, Ripmax, Tower etc. were fine when mail-order & high street were the norm. They could control pricing ... but today its an old system that basically has difficulty surviving.

Established in 1930, Graupner/wikipedia. (Robbe was even older).
Graupner even had its own balsa tree plantation in South America.

Some recent history in these two Aufwind Magazin.de articles:

A broad selection of Aufwind (paper) articles is available online, from 2003 to most recent issue:
