I''m building a "Lady Wooes" tug by Mobile Marines using 2 Ford Cortina fan motors. A friend of mine sold me 2 speed controllers which have "Little Models" on them, I''d like to be able to use them on this project.
I''ve searched the internet for info. but found nothing about "Little Models"
I''m wondering where the best place is to mount them, will they reverse the motors, will the motors interfere with the speed controllers?
If anyone can help or offer advice I would appreciate a reply.
Many thanks and kind regards.

Little Models of Grantham have been trading flags,boat fittings and electrics since before the days of the internet.Mike is still trading under the banner Model Flags but does not have a website.I'll send the Model Flags telephone number to your message box.
Try looking at the local events that Mobile Marine sponsors or attends.

It does not look like you opened your message box with the number for Model Flags.
It contains the phone number and the instructions of the reversing esc. You have to log in and Click on "My Account" >"My Messages".

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
