What would ship model making be without accessories? Stand-alone models receive the necessary optical finishing touches with the appropriate accessories. Functional models become a finished model ship through model construction accessories like ship propeller, speed controller and ship shaft system. In our jojo model making shop we offer you a wide selection of ship model making accessories from different manufacturers. From the model ship engine and portholes to the model ship's crew, you will find everything that the tinkerer's heart desires.
Model building ship engine & propulsion
Whenever a model ship starts to move, his work begins : the model ship propulsion. This is one of the most important parts of functional models of ship model making accessories. As with real ships, there is also a wide variety of drive sets for ships in the area of model construction. Especially common are rigid drive shafts, which are driven by a model ship engine and which set ship's propellers in motion. The steering is done by a rudder blade which is adjusted to the propeller and guides the water flow in a certain direction.
Boats move faster or slower depending on the condition of the propellers on the ship's shaft systems. Two-blade propellers as ship model construction accessories are particularly suitable for racing boats, four-blade propellers for working ships. Three-bladed propellers are common. For the silent running of submarines we carry special propellers. Large ships can also be propelled with more than one model ship drive in parallel or one behind the other.
Ship propellers & ship propellers as model making accessories for ships
In our online shop for model ships we offer a wide range of brass propellers and ship's propellers from Raboesch. Our ship propellers range from the 2-blade to the 7-blade submarine propeller. In addition, we also offer CNC manufactured racing screws made of aluminium and stainless steel.
The model ship controller
For the engine control of model ships a model ship controller is necessary. This enables the remote control of the engine speed. In the past, mechanical speed controllers were used, which permanently emitted electricity. Today, the electronic controller, which only emits current pulses and thus offers a longer battery life, has become generally accepted. In our shop you will find controllers for DC motors with brush systems and brushless controllers for brushless DC motors.
