Volvo Penta 155 HP sound module. by robtroi Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Alan All the parts have come together, i have put the Penta engine sound on and it's ready to send to you. Where would you like it sending? please note you are under no obligation to buy this from me. I am more interested in what you think! like does it do the job?

Volvo Penta 155 HP sound module. by robtroi Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Alan I will contact you if my Idea works 😀

Volvo Penta 155 HP sound module. by robtroi Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Alan I am looking into developing a little unit that you can drop into any boat with any desired sound. I have ordered some parts and awaiting their arrival to see if they are suitable for what I have in mind. they should be here in a week or so. The sound units which are available to buy I find to be very expensive and one type of sound. The unit I have in mind would be less than £15 and rechargeable so no wiring involved with interchangeable sounds. If it works out as I imagine I will put the Penta engine sound on it and send it to you to evaluate. 😊

ordering from overseas by robtroi Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Dave So what you are suggesting is the Gov.uk web page should update their information to iron out the way they add VAT? All our members should buy from within the UK where possible, but be aware of other costs when not doing so. Rob 😊

ordering from overseas by robtroi Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Dave My post is taken from the "www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty" I just deleted items that were not relevant, such as alcohol etc etc Rob 😀

ordering from overseas by robtroi Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
This is an extract from the UK Gov web page: VAT You pay VAT on goods sent from non-European Union countries and if they are: gifts worth more than £34 other goods worth more than £15 You have to pay VAT on all goods sent by mail order from the Channel Islands no matter what their value. You will be charged at the rate that applies to your goods. VAT is charged on the total value, including: the price paid for the goods, postage, packaging and insurance, any duty you owe Customs Duty You will be charged Customs Duty on gifts and other goods sent from outside the EU if they are above a certain value, unless the duty comes to less than £7. The value includes: the price paid for the goods, postage, packaging and insurance, Type and value of goods, Customs Duty Anything under £135-= No charge Gifts worth £135-£630 = 2.5%, but rates are lower for some goods Gifts above £630 and other goods above £135 = The rate depends on the type of goods and where they came from. If you are charged too much or return your goods Ask for a refund of VAT or Customs Duty. 👺

Ship Plans by robtroi Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
Where does one get plans for a specific boat. I would like to build a model of the "Bali Sea" which is a Ro-Ro Rail ferry. (see pic) And was thinking to scale it using "N"gauge rolling stock. I can get the overall length and beam which is 175.3 M x 35.8 M. and the draft is 6.9 M I also know rail tracks Upper Deck 8 Tracks x 3644 ft Lower Deck 7 tracks x 3220 ft But this is about all the information I can find
