Yep, Smiths type fan motor, a great motor.
I had one in a 1/32 scale tug running on 12V, turning a 70 mm prop in a Kort nozzle and it was pretty powerful and efficient :-))

I understand there are some out there that will only run in one direction of rotation, no matter how they are connected, check before buying??

it looks like their 900 size 12 pole motor - ideal for driving a large prop. I have a pair of their later silver colour 900 12 pole version.
