Thanks Ducky

Printed three of them out for future reference - graphics on the last one don't view or print out by the way (the mixer setup one) shame really as its the most useful one.

One additional point, Westbourne have 2 web sites - and .com - the diagrams appear on the .com site

Cheers - Ken

 Hi Manxman

It would appear that the is the newer of the two sites you mentioned,I will have to e-mail them and ask if they can rectify the duff diagram of the 2 ESC with mixer plan !!. There must be plenty of us out here with need of that info,just found your plans in your album though so thanks for that!!

Saw your Matchstick tug at Ellesmere Show in 2006 and did'nt know in my ignorance they were workng models, Fantastic !

Regards Ducky

Hi Ducky,

I agree, the last one was the most useful with the mixer as it also increases the turning circle.

I'm not into static models, nice though they are,  One problem with using matches is they float! - and with the hulls being 4 matches thick gives a hull thickness of almost 1 centimetre - that takes a lot of ballast to bring it down.  Pacific Light will almost certainly be a two man lift into the water - still it will sail in quite rough waters due to its weight.

Cheers - Kenny

Hi Ducky, The Modelling tips on the Westbourne Models website are good, but try and print the "Twin Motor and Speed Controller with Mixer "set up and all one gets is the written advice, the the diagram does not print out (the other 3 do)

You can find an excellent selection of wiring diagrams on the ACTion Electronics site. While they do feature ACTion products (which are very good anyway) the wiring can be applied to the use of products from other manufacturers.

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
