Live Steam boats and lever espresso machines

My first big boat!!

This launch came to me mostly done- but very "under -done". The hull was fiberglass- but not finished out inside and was equipped with operational 2 channel r/c and the original Krick twin engine and boiler. A very nice to look at power plant but not very reliable.It had a sticker on the stern that stated it was from the Model shipwrights in London.

 

I opted to completely gut the boat and start over... here is what I ended up with. She is 42" long x 8" wide. Powered with a Graupner twin engine and horizontal boiler
