fuse holder by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 hours ago
Hi Dodgy, The board for Colin's Supermarine yes. After I modified my original version when I discovered excessive heating effects during initial trials. The 'little ones' I made for my Taycol Target no, not quite! Will publish details, with wiring diagrams and test results, in the relevant blogs shortly. Cheers, Doug 😎

Do those boards follow the circuit diagrams on the Taycol web site? I seem to remember that you said you had 'refined them slightly'?

fuse holder by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 hours ago
Yep!👍 https://www.componentshop.co.uk/p95-indicator-fuse-boards-si... Spec attached as pdf. Strictly speaking the LED simply indicates the polarity of the voltage applied to it. Which way the motor turns depends on how you wired it. But it does help with setting up the wiring and response to TX throttle stick.😉 Easy enough to make though, as I did for my Sea Scout. See pic of 'Engine Room'. Or the Taycol field motor converter boards I've made for Martin and Colin. Two fuses are fitted; one for the field coil, one for the armature. Last two pics. Resettable fuses (contact breakers) are also available to fit these holders. Cheers, Doug 😎

Are these any good by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 hours ago
Mornin' John, (Well it is here!) I have something very similar and it works well, was using it tonight to make some test leads for Colins Taycol Supermarine, which is chuntering away behind me running in it's new bearings 😉 If you don't already have such a tool Go for it👍 Benefit of that one is that it has interchangeable heads for different sizes, Better 'n mine 😭 Cheers, Doug 😎

Mini lathe by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
Aha! You mean the 'Lego Lathe'!! Lotsa blocks you can shove together to make a lathe or milling machine or .... Agree about the motor, not big enough or man enough for the job. I bought one at an exhibition some years ago, it's buried in the workshop somewhere.😲 Nowadays I mostly use my little Proxxon FD150/E. Just used it to make some parts for Colin's Taycol Supermarine renovation. Simple uncomplicated machine, good for small parts. Cheers, Doug 😎

Mornin' John, Hows things 'Ol Mate'😉 Basically on a PC the 'Photos' App built into Windows 10 should do the job. Pic shows the opening window displaying the last photos I downloaded / Stored. i haven't experimented much with it yet but it should find any photos / pics on any drive, stick or memory card on your PC. If you are using a Smartphone I don't know, although most seem to have a 'Gallery' function built in! It will depend on which phone you have and which operating system it uses. Best thing to do there is look at the Apps already installed or in the Google or Microsoft App Stores. More later when I've fiddled with the 'Photos' App a bit more. Better shift to a new thread then as well, afore we're arrested for hijacking😲 (again😁)! At the moment I'm putting the finishing touches to Colin's Taycol Supermarine. Just reassembled it with new bearings and ran some tests using my prototype converter board. Runs fore and aft perfectly on a normal brushed ESC.😊 Will update the 'Supermarine Resurrection' blog shortly. All the best, Doug 😎

A return to the hobby! by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 days ago
Now now children let's not start another war by hijacking another thread. Taycol is a superb motor whether refurbished to modern standards or totally original, so please let's not waste any time arguing. Cheers Colin.

"........Hi DG, Hmmm! They can always make a donation to our site and read my refurb blog😁 Anyway, I'm not sure they'd like what I'm doing with Colin's motor.😲 They tend to be 'Patina purists'! 🤓......." Oh, I'm sure that they'd be only too happy to encourage any interest in the Taycols - original or modified. But I fear that they would have problems making a donation - they are strictly providers of free information, use only open source software and won't even run adverts on their site to defray their expenses...

Hi DG, Hmmm! They can always make a donation to our site and read my refurb blog😁 Anyway, I'm not sure they'd like what I'm doing with Colin's motor.😲 They tend to be 'Patina purists'! 🤓 Pics show where we're at, output end is done, brush gear end is a bit trickier! Details in a blog update shortly. Cheers, Doug 😎 PS This is my second 'Taycol Tale' 😉 Last year I renovated my Target and converted it to run off a modern ESC, forrads and backuds as Martin would say😁, for use in my fish cutter. Which might get finished around 2025🤔

".....Ref your motor: I'm multiplexing myself between repairing fences and refurbing your motor! Reassembly has started; first new bearing is in, will tackle the second tonight. Illustrated 'right up' 😁 to follow. Cheers, Doug 😎..." The Taycol website would appreciate a write-up if you have an interesting 'Taycol Tale' to tell....

If you don't make mistakes then you don't make anything, good luck with the commander. I'm doing a commander refurb on my dad's old one from the 50's. RNMUNICH is doing the motor for me it's an old taycol supermarine. I'll be doing a full right up after Xmas. Happy modelling, cheers Colin.

LED Tug Mast Navigation Lights by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Pete, welcome back😊 Glad your eyeballs have cleared up 👍 Just ordered new goggles yesterday, should be here end of the month, then I can fiddle with 1mm LEDs again - maybe😉 No, I didn't put a plug and socket at the base of the mast. I hard wired it into connections in the wheelhouse roof. Then took all the wires down through the funnels until they poked out the bottom of the main cabin. That's it for now. The mast is not glued in, it's a tight push fit so can still be folded down a bit. Later I'll make the little distribution board and put the plug and socket there so I can still remove the whole superstructure for maintenance. No again, I haven't done any more on the Southampton yet. Been busy fiddling with my fish cutter Gina 2, hull preparation and preliminary coat of white paint, and cleaning up Colin's vintage Taycol field coil motor. See Electrical Blogs 'Taycol Supermarine'. Cheers, Doug 😎

He He! Me 2, just ordered new specs today!😉 Slotted base is good. Variation in length due to my mods shouldn't be more than a few mm. Cheers, Doug 😎

Taycol supermarine dimensions. by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Sorry Doug, must need new specs, the mounting holes will be on a slotted base plate to allow for final adjustment for and aft. So any dimensions that change should be okay. Cheers Colin.
