I can't help with specific instructions as I'm not familiar with the exact model but in general there are two types of smoke generators:

1) Those that use an ultrasonic membrane which vaporizes ordinary (soft) water into a mist which is then blown out by a fan. These typically need a 24 volt supply and may include a rectifier within the body to provide this. Another clue.

2) Those that use some variation of "Smoke Oil/Fog Fluid. These use a heating element of some description which vaporizes the liquid and may also use a small fan to blow the mist/smoke out the funnel. These are typically 6 volt or 12 volts and typically draw more current but the "smoke" tends to be thicker.

If you can take it apart and see if its a membrane with a rectifier or a heating element this would give you some guidance.

Hope this may assist

just to be on the safe side i added a bulkhead to take the strain of the reasonably long propshafts, before the couplings were put in place a couple of brass tube Mockups were used to align the motors and motor bulkhead while the glue sets..
once every thing was in place and I was happy with the setup and the glue had gone off, the brass tubes were removed and the couplings installed..
i have opted for a M-troniks 10 amp ESC, should be ample enough as the motors only draw about 3 amps on full load…  free running or in water is about 0.5 - 1 amp, she will be running on a 2 cell lipo, which should give me about an hour of running time, ample for competitions..
I have added, or should I say, I have doubled up the sides of the Cockpit area of the hull, leaving a gap of about 1.5 mm between the bottom of the side panels and the beams that the decks are glued to..
This creates a slot that the Cockpit structure can slide into, so it's secure in place and can not fall out..
Also this gives more area for the cabin roof to be glued to.. 
I am not to sure if it's clear in the instructions, but all of my rear decks (cockpit well, seating well, rear deck) are at the same hight, and interlock with each other, so they should not fall out, no rubber bands or the likes of to hold them in place..
As I have mentioned, I have hardly used the instructions, but in there, are diagrams for bending the brass for the cage over the rear seating area, again I have not used theses as I have added some brass tubing so as the cage is removable, and I do not have to think about the legs of the cage all being the same length so it looks right..  all soldered together and cleaned up..
just a few bits here and there, then i can start painting the Hull..
some of the fitting have been built, and a few still need to be cleaned up..
slowly but surely..

Thanks very much, they are sticky backed so i will try just sticking them on. All finished otherwise except i'm missing any capacitors and spade for the motor so got to try and chase them up.

Hi Taranis I did much the same and am now free of one of the BP pills.  My reasoning was different however.  When I was first prescribed a BP pill, it was OK then I had to go back a month later and this time saw a different doctor, he did not check my blood pressure but simply doubled the dose to 40 mgrm pills.

For a week I slept 16 hours a day and I was in the middle of decorating the whole house.  I was like a zombie.  I booked another GP appointment and refused to see the dodgy doctor.  Explained the problem went on to a different pill and was OK.  I think I went on to a different pill as if the dose had been reduced again it would have been a criticism of the the doctor!
Knowing that I decided some time later to start weaning myself off the damn things.  Generally I am 135/75 which seems to suit me fine.  The dodgy doctor is still there and the only one you can easily get an appointment with, I wonder why?

BP update.
By monitoring twice a day I have found one 20mg tablet of Lisinopril is now lasting two days so I am going to start breaking them in half and spread them better daily.

If this continues I'll ask for 10mg tablets on repeat.
This morning 119/80

Thank you for your nice comments. I hope she will look good wearing paint when I get to it  :-)

This is my idea for easy mounting and removal if repairs needed for the gallows. I have doubled the deck thickness at the locating holes too.  The 4mm UJ insert is just the ideal size and shape to turn without tools. I had one in my bits drawer so only had to order one more from SHG
