Hi lighterman

The Graupner voith units stand around 15cm in height from the tips of the blades to the top of the motor, 5cm of this is the length of the blades. To fit them in a hull requires an 84mm hole into which a mounting ring is fitted allowing the unit to then be secured to the hull.


Hope this helps O0

There are actually three books, all in German, and I haven't read the two I have, because,..
Well they are in German. 


I have yet to find a copy of the book by,
 Theodor Vieweg ISBN 3-7883-187-2
"Der VSP-Antrieb im Schiffsmodell"

The second by,
Kurt Benz ISBN 3-922414-10-9,
 "Der Voith Schneider Propeller als Schiffsmodellantrieb"
Sometimes pops up on e-bay. it has plans for a four blade drive approximately
 95mm in diameter with 15mm wide x 47mm long blades.

The third book is on e-bay regularly. MTB Modell-technik-berater - MTB30
"Voith-Schneider-Antrieb im Selbstbau"
by Hubert Bossart/ Eberhard Schulz Isbn 3-88180-374-2
Drawings to build a four blade drive approximately
 114mm in diameter, with 20mm wide x 50mm long blades.

Of course once you have the plans, it would be possible to
enlarge or reduce them as you see fit, or as
 your skill level and machine tooling  allows.

The old graupner 1768 drives are
 84mm OA in diameter with five blades approximately  10mm wide x 27mm long.
HT OA 91mm

The new 2002 Graupner 2358 drives are
 93mm OA in diameter, and have five blades approximately 17mm wide x 50 mm long
HT OA 155mm

If you go into a page and press F5 to refresh the page does come up.

Lovely looking models there, where'd you get the resin anime kits?

It was my first figure kit.
