    Hi Bill,
    I have published pics of two renovations / conversions.
    One thread is about Colin's Taycol Supermarine restoration-
    https://model-boats.com/forum/46155#46167
    https://model-boats.com/forum/46155#46155

    The other one is about my Taycol Target conversion.
    This is embedded in my Sea Scout renovation Blog.
    https://model-boats.com/blogs/28209#28432

    Martin,
    There are many comments on the renovations (not all relevantπŸ™„) in both threads.
    So, when I've got nowt else to do πŸ™„, I'll pick out the relevant stuff and blog it.
    In the meantime; if you just search 'Taycol' in the Forum / Electrics section you will find lots of info on the old motasπŸ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug😎

    ..... I have trawled thru and can’t find them anywhere,and I am quite interested.

    Doug,

    Maybe you could do a little log/Thread on Vintage Motor Restoration.
    I for one would like to see how it is done.

    Sorry Roger for drifting off of your thread's topic.

    Hi Bill,
    I have published some pics (before and after) and description of works so far about two years ago.
    Then everything screeched to a halt. Bin fiddling mostly with EU life after BREXIT, abode and electronicals and vintage motor restorations since then.
    I'll get back to it sometime esp. coz I've already invested in motors, ESCs and gun kits for it!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Re Miracle Gro
    For a moment there Bill I thought I must have written that and promptly forgotten about it πŸ™„πŸ˜
    Could use sum o dat, my Azaleas and Rhodos are looking a bit peaky!
    Maybe a quick charge from a LiPo would help? πŸ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Well T33 !!!!!
    I would never have dreamed of feeding my batteries on Miracle Gro for azalea,camellia and rhododendron.
    This brings a whole new aspect to the ROOT problem of which units to use.
    I may try it on my FLOWER Class corvette....Sorry !!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Regards Bill.
