Shaun.

I am happy you got the two VSP we sold you. Hope they were Ok as we never used them but its good you have a model now.

They were purchased in Goteborg back in 1993 and bought to New Zealand and now they are in the UK. Well travelled.

I'm not sure on the diameter /size of blades John but i do know that the brushless is more powerful than the original ones as the manager of Bauer Modelle mentioned to me the difference in the units.
They really perform well the one l saw on display in Germany but unfortunately there are pretty pricey.

I saw the new brushless type voiths in Dortmund on the Bauer stand back in April and they are really nice kit I posted some photo's on this site of them and the kit they are originally intended for. Here's the photo taken back in Dortmund of the brushless ones.

Hi Kev. Did the blades look to be any longer or wider, just a thought if they were, if they would fit the Graupner voith to give more thrust on lower revs.

Cheers

  Hi Shaun.
  I think it's the old model voith you are looking for the ones they put in the Thyssen pusher.
  The number ref 1768 you have put,  I think they are small shottles   ( 1761 )

   Regards

For Sale (Private Ads Only) / Sun Kent tug on eBay
« Last post by Kev30 on June 18, 2017, 13:17:55 »
Just come across this tug for sale on eBay its a model of the Sun Kent formerly a tug based at Gravesend its 55" long so I'd imagine it's a model built to 1:24 and being this size be a lump to put in your motor? But these size models do look good on the water have a look at the link attached it might interest some members on here.

Thank you for the replys, the larger units are nice but ideally you need a smaller VSP units, mind you I didn't realise they done a brushless motor version. Looks good.
