getting a bit slow?... by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Evenin' Martin, Re: 'New Posts'; when you log on to site on the 'Home Page' the latest post are displayed. Scroll down and at the bottom you will find a 'Show earlier posts' button, in case you have missed something. Your dioramas sound marvellous👍 can you post some pics??? Could give me some inspiration for my 1/24th Mosquito. At that scale it has a wingspan of about 30 inches 😲 I intend to fit it with motors and lights and a sound module with that wonderful Merlin sound 😊 Your input could help create a great diorama 👍 Cheers Doug 😎

Motor Mounted! by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Love it 👍 Way to go Ed!! I'm sure you did too, sounds like a pokey motor, BUT ... Please copy me the mail (unseen!?) and his reply! I can't wait to see his response 😁 Also can't wait to see your tug in her element. Man! are you quick with the build! 😲 Cheers Doug 😎 PS: use the cash you save on the sound module to put a smoke / steam generator in, that would really finish her off nicely 👍

HMS HOOD by Trumpeter by octman Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Yes I was that person with the transducer( amongst others). I originally had a speaker inside the lower superstructure of the tug, where there are window openings, but without any glazing, so in theory the sound should have been able to escape. The engine sounds were OK but the other sounds, on a different sound module, were only audible if the model was more or less within arms length, which I thought unsatisfactory! Aha I thought, use a transducer attached under the deck, other people seem to get satisfactory results. I didn't. I think that there is too much clutter on the deck of the Southampton,which is not that big, preventing the hull from doing what it is supposed to do. Next idea is to conceal a normal speaker on the deck disguised as a pile of pallets, with lots of lovely gaps to let the sound out. Chris

Steam sound unit (variable speed) by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
What I don't like about the 'Noisy Thing' is that apparently the engine sound stops for as long as you use any other sound; e.g. fog horn, ship's bell etc, so called 'General Sounds' in the Action description, if you use it in so called 'Throttle Mode', i.e. engine sound coupled to speed. In that case you may as well use a Switch module to connect the 'General Sounds' on separate modules to an amplifier with mixer inputs. The sound modules I found here (Germany) don't have this disadvantage. They have at least two output channels enabling a minimum of two simultaneous sounds. Specific sounds can also be coupled to switched outputs; e.g. to move cranes, gun turrets, or switch lights etc whenever that corresponding sound is actuated. Specific sequences of various sounds can be pre-programmed and initiated with one command using only one sound channel. Attached are extracts from the manual of a module from Neuhaus Electronics showing how to synchronise real engine sounds to the throttle. Needs a bit of PC work but no rocket science 😉 and the sounds are then linked to the throttle stick position. Send me a PM and I can send you details including source and operating manual. The Graupner module is very similar but I haven't experimented with it yet. Cheers Doug 😎

Hi Eric, I've looked at the Action engine sound modules again and they are not restricted to any make of ESC. They take their control signal directly from the RX ESC channel and have a socket on board to connect the ESC, whoever's it is 👍😉 The sound is however synthesised to enable this. Dave's Action Noisy Thing is obviously the better choice than the Micro modules bur of course more elaborate and thus more expensive. Seems to be very similar to what I found here in Germany. Cheers Doug 😎

Exactly! 👍 The advantage of the German sound modules I found is I believe that you can sequence the engine sounds start, run, idle, stop etc (or any others!) but I don't know yet if it is (or can be) linked to the ESC control. Had other things to think about recently 😉 I do know that they can be linked to other functions; e.g. crane, gun turret noise, when these are activated so it should be possible! Wishing a Happy and Noisy New Year, cheers Doug 😎

Hi Eric, I have a sound module from a specialist German company who only make electronic modules for models. I'll dig out some info / links (in English😉) and post/send to you. You could also look at the Graupner Sound module. On both of these you can load your own sound files in raw WAV format. There are thousands of these of genuine ships sounds on the WWW. Can send you some samples if you like. The advantage of the digital synthesised versions however is that they can be linked directly to the motor speed! If you mess with the replay speed of the WAV files they just sound daft 🤔 Or you have to find a way to synchronise separate start, accelerate and cruise sound files to the model speed. rather you than me Gungadin!😉 BTW: I'm not sure that the Action modules only work with their ESCs! As an electronics engineer I'm sceptical and will test that with other ESCs. Cheers and HNY, Doug 😎

1:16 scale figures for a model trawler ? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 months ago
Looking for crew for your Tiger were you?? 😉 BTW: if you're going to put a sound module in the Tiger tank and want genuine sound bites: start up, (running with squeaking tracks), and stop, idle, shut down, gun fire, heavy machine gun fire: I have a whole directory of such sounds in wav or mp3 format. Can send if you want. Cheers Doug 😎

NAXOS - Fishing Boat by watson220 Lieutenant   Posted: 8 months ago
I use the sound module on my ship from the Slovak manufacturer to give her a preview of what sound it has. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzqUrNaYp0g Plan for Naxos can be purchased here: http://eshop.rcrevue.cz/planky-modelar/225-naxos-014s.html?s...

Re Technobots Sound Units- "As part of our review into the product ranges we stock, this engine sound unit is no longer available from Technobots. We have been the retail outlet for the excellent engine sound module designs of Alan Bond of Forge Electronics for many years and have proudly supplied over 1,000 of these units to modellers around the world. The good news is that Alan is going to continue production of the programmable sound unit so please visit the Forge-Electronics website for pricing and availability. Our rather popular and well respected range of single voice and combo engine sound units have had a makeover! They still have the same great sounds but are even more user friendly." https://www.technobotsonline.com/combo-engine-sound-unit-mk2... Doug 😎

Deck in! by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 months ago
After a week away in Lanzarote, have had a couple of days to get some work done. Left side of hull is now fully sheeted, gaps filled and awaiting final sanding and glass clothing. Decided to get ahead of myself and have fitted all the deck pieces and the cabin deck formers. The inside of the hull has had a second coat of epoxy resin and will get a couple of coats of yaht varnish once the final pieces of internal wood parts have been fitted to include battery tray, motor mounts, prop shafts, servo rail, ESC tray, receiver tray, speaker/engine sound module tray. Up at the bow have fitted the wood for the on/off switch, sanded, sealed and primed the bow deck before adding a couple of the detail parts.

Hi again Neil, did you mean their sound modules? Something like this? http://www.mtroniks.net/prod/Sound-Systems-For-Scale-Models/... Don't know these anyway🤔 Up to now I've used simple analogue sound boards (some home made) and microswitch /or relay control. Also have a Graupner programmable sound system in my stash, destined for Ark Royal. Doug 😎 Doug 😎
