    Just having a float around on the www. and found these on Ebay. The seller seems to have them in several sizes , and they are pretty close to those I have that came from Graupner.

    Just a quickie.

    For those of you not using the original sails or buying a replacement set from Frank Parsons @ Nylet and intending to make your own, you may find the items here useful. I have been making both flat and panelled sails for yachts up to Inga size for a while and having the right stuff available is a godsend. Also great for small turnbuckles, wire etc on other bits of the site. As to turnbuckles, the most scale-like that I have found were made by Graupner. Not sure if they are still available or if there are similar around.

    The deadeyes are 10mm in diameter. The 3 holes are 2mm each. I was only working from plans. I had no guarantees that the plan would work. I set up one pair of deadeyes, braided string between them, a chainplate attached to a simulated section of hull, and a shroud wire attached to the upper deadeye. Next the shroud wire was attached to the ceiling of the shop. The lower end of the simulated hull section was attached to a 20kg pail of water and left to hang for 6 months while I worked on other parts of the boat.
    The sail winch motors are either a piece of work DaVinci would be pleased with or they are junk. But they can vertically lift 5kg, one meter up, in 13 seconds

    Hi Ross.

    The ravings of an old nutter seem to fit perfectly with the thoughts and niggles of another old nutter. You my friend have allayed many of my worries today and I thank you for it, you are a gentleman
    By asking a couple of questions today we have had quite an in-depth discussion between a few members, who I feel have all gained something from it
    Thankyou everyone who has participated
    Roger.

    Just to throw another idea in the mix regarding the original query, if using a single servo arm proves complicated would it be an option to take a Y lead off the received to run two servos off a single channel, one for each sail?

    Tiggy_cat certainly not ravings but some brilliant ideas for me to run through and consider which knock lots of my ideas in the head.
    I think most of us building this model will if not now but in the future thank you greatly for sharing your not inconsiderable experience.
    I thank you very much ChrisG

    This definitely sounds of someone who has been this route before
