    these days you can get any paint MIXED in a can.even two Pack if you want it.I have had BS numbers in all kinds of paint type's the lenth of time that models spend brteen re paints is normally not that long also there is no need to put a top clear coat on like you do with some types of paint it is also Cellulose is less harmlessmt o use .

    This is part of a restriced document I recivd it also confirmed what we had pulled of a few original vosper plans BS631 was just a primer colour as it wa used the white roof tops and under a lot of the other paints the roof tops where currex smoth white! so differnt docs say different things I think the typed document came out after the firsr re fit.

    ๐Ÿ“ dual speed controller advice
    7 years ago by Peter HS93 ( Warrant Officer)
    Flag
    the delay look's like one is not set crectly to nutral I make a short extension lead up with the red wire taped up that way you can plug the speed controlers in with there bec BUT one at a time when they are both set then plug both in with the short extension in one lead, much easeyer to set them up leave the mixer out till both are set then put the mixer in. I found this the best way and have set a few up , not used the astec but used the ACt-something one and the very goood hunter one.

    you can watercool outrunners by cooling the mount, when they heat up and you stop running the heat wells towards the front of the motor so does need cooling ,good motor, are you fitting two ?

    hear are two watercooled in a 46" boat belonging to a friend during tests, the extra wires are for the data recording and gps

    I use two futaba 9cs and the newer or last of the 9c and have never flown one uses the JetI system 2.4 with feedback and the other uses the futaba 2.4 modual , plus several smaller futaba 6ch sets all 2.4 and a few of my old JR 40mhz sets converted to 2.4 but never needed the extra bits to set up brushless controlers.

    will you bring it to New Brighton when the Illegal swans go on the lake, there is a sign saying no feeding swans but old F*rts come along wirth several loaves of bread and ruin it for the boaters , ๐Ÿ˜ญ not like there isint a lake for the swans 50ft away, ๐Ÿ˜ so I think it is one of the best things I have seen in boating for a long time and I wish I could build one. ๐Ÿ˜›

    sorry I hadent spotted the pictures of the inside it seems to be a 600 type motor with brass blocks to watercool around the brush gear the speed controler is very good just change the motor to a 900, you can get them on ebay from "Lukethemonkey" they are a bit tatty looking but are the same batch as are being sold for 3 times the price. if you email them they will give you the price for your boat, they DO sell them and have done for some time.or contact http://www.lesromodels.co.uk/shop/product_info.php?products_... they sell the kit and will sell you a fitting kit but I would PM the chap who is on hear at the Vintagemodelworkshop.

    if you can fit the running gear first as if it is very old it is sometimes a good idea to change to a M4 shaft and tube with new bearings also fit and try the motor that way you are not damaging the outside fitting motor mounts etc can you post a picture of the inside and people on hear may be able to help identify the motor, the fittings are not a problem these days as there is a chap advertising them on hear and they are made as the originals where made also you can get the correct stickers when you are ready, if you are going to change motor go brushless you can still use any type of battery with them and they are more efficent.
