Doesn't appear to have much on the circuit board  ???      I wonder if a chip is underneath.

Would be nice to 'take a punt' as you put it.  A report on here could make or break the seller.    %)

Thats what i was thinking but as the wires go underneath i wonder if the messy bits are that side.

I have messaged him to see if he will do a youtube clip of the deisel sound so i can hear it before i buy so i will wait a reply . if he does ill post the link.

Probably SMD stuff on the underside with the conventional (terminals, LED, Switch) stuff on the face. 
The tech spec is a bit sparse - he does say that the speaker "must not be less than 8 ohms" but doesn't trouble to say what power the device gives.  He does say that "a power amplifier may be needed" which to me translates to " a power amplifier will be needed if you want to hear it".

I had a look at his "other items" and there is some interesting stuff there, including a 5 way switch and a turret servo controller (which might also be able to work a crane or davits, maybe).  O0

My thoughts exactly, with an amplifier and a decent waterproof speaker, it's going to be at least 35 quid........

I have no experience of this particular unit, but the guys pedigree is top notch, if you want radio conversions for specific needs, he's your man. I would say worth a punt :-))

The seller also has a website - http://www.modelradioworkshop.co.uk/products - and seems genuine.

Why not contact the seller and ask him for more info, especially regarding the power output, before purchasing?

Hi all,
I have purchased some of theses sound modules they are quite good the diesel ones are simular to robbe unit but personally think are slightly better, i have also fitted the steam sound units in two of my mates caldercraft clyde puffers and sound excellent. :-))
I think they are worth the 20 and are ideal for puffers,tugs,and fishing trawlers etc...
Also as other members have mentioned the seller has other interesting units, servo extenders,switchers etc..
Hope this helps :-))
