Gazou, Orca in Jaws movie was a battered old fishing boat, with a diesel engine, not electric, with models, we have the license as the builders to exagerate things, and personalise to our own tastes, there is little point making and fitting a bespoke sound unit to a model boat if you cannot hear it, so the sound needs to be exagerated, just like led lights are exagerated, so they can be seen, and scale speed is exagerated, otherwise the model would be too slow, and so on.

Roll on the warm balmy summer afternoons with the gentle rasp of enraged Strimmers and the fragrant perfume of burning food. :D and don't forget, the sound of a steam plant exactly scales down to a natural sound without third harmonics - - -  or any others for that matter.

 Hi Pete, I have messed about with one of your files, and using the black magic of audacity have arrived at a very different sound, which is pretty close to what I wanted :-))
 
I tried to attach for you to hear, but cant seem to make it small enough, so will have to wait till I can record it in the boat. Using repeat function, and an age spend cropping out any possible "join" in the tracks it seems ok, given its in a model boat, and is sitting behing music and dialogue from the jaws film, it should be great, thanks for your help, Paul :}

Paul,

Glad I could help.  When you have it all done, post a video so we can see and hear it.

Pete.
