  1. I have several tiny electric motors like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/225061248900 but to spin a scale propeller it ideally needs to be of the type that is off until you give it a little push so there’s no need to mount an on/off switch anywhere. I’ve tried Googling them but nothing comes up, probably because I don’t know what they’re called and describing them didn’t help either. The last time I saw one was in a 1/32 scale Airfix kit of a Spitfire I made 50 years ago in 1972. Can anyone advise please on whether these motors still exist (or if there’s a better solution that doesn’t need an on/off switch). Thanks.
  2. Kit manufacture: Italeri Scale: 1/48 Type: Osprey Extras used: Xtradecal decals, PJ production pilots, Hasegawa flight crew, Base from coastal kits, Added leds and motors, Eduard canopy masks Paints and colours used: Mr hobby and tamiya Started this a while ago, built it for my brother who loves ospreys. Thought i would add some motors and lights to experiment. Motors are ok but need to redo the part which connects into the props as its a bit off centre and not spinning right (see vid) Decided to add a couple of figures to add a bit of interest. My first kit with raised panel lines, i decided to use stretched sprue to replace the panel lines which were sanded off. Looks ok but i think next time ill give the full rescribing job a go. Pictures not up to my usual standard as with the base its rather large and was a pain to photograph! Anyway hope you like, ive put a link to the video of it in operation at the bottom Here is the vid.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQGZPnSAJJ0
