It is my sad duty to inform you, that Wilhelm ( Willi ) Kraus died suddenly last weekend at the age of 82. Willi is the younger brother of Rudi Kraus. In the starting times of Navis / Neptun Willi Kraus built the master models of the ships of the US- and Royal Navy. Most of us have "his models" in our collection and will remember him looking at these beautiful models. Without Willi we would not have so many excelent models. Since more than 20 years Willi was not active any more in our hobby, but his importance for our hobby may not be underestimated. Please Keep Willi in your Memory.
