What are the green fittings wired into the loom? Are they fuse holders??

She's coming on a treat.

HJI ballastanksian. Simple answer yes.  One for each motor if you check out Action electronics web site you will see the make a single version or a double version. More pictures to follow of the build.

Thanks for that Stan. A fellow Yeovil member puts fuses on his batteries and more here and there in his loom. Definitly a wise idea to save the magic grey smoke occuring!

HI Guys after much head scratching I have managed to get the radar working. The first few pictures show the small gear box enclosed in in thin plastic card with the motor showing. Radar scanner just clicks in to the unit  more pictures to follow showing unit fixed on the mast.

HI Guys I have been asked by tug Kenny to take some pictures of the radar drive unit fitted on the mast of Schultz. The unit is very compact see pictures above showing unit fitted to mast. I have also included a sketch showing more details of the unit. Under the final drive you will see a small screw this must not be glued over if you do then the unit will not work. P/m if you need further information.

Thanks Stan,

That explains it very well.  Much appreciated for the efforts you have put in.  I think most of us have required a radar unit at one time or other.  No questions this time.   ok2      all explained nicely.

Cheers

Hi everyone the mast for Schultz is just about completed now ready for its varnish finish. My model will be on show at the Harrogate Model Show next week. If you are visiting please come along to the Kirklees Stand.
