I will try again to upload photos of the USS Constitution that I mentioned in a previous post. The one that only took me 47 years to finish.

Fantastic workmanship there, one heck of a lot of time must have been spent on the rigging alone. 2thumbsup

Yes please to the photo's of the steamer you are doing, I plan a paddle steamer for my next project, not sure if I can afford live steam though, unless I win the lottery.

PostSubject: live steam   Tue Aug 11, 2015 11:16 pm

Actually the live steam is not all that expensive- I purchased my steam engine used on ebay for about 70 us dollars. I may have been lucky as I have seen these same steam engines go for over 120 dollars - just need to have patience on the bidding. I will include a picture of what I got for my steam power. I have since removed all parts from the base that it is mounted on in the picture -- I will reconfigure it so that the boiler will go lengthwise in the ship and the engine itself will go behind the boiler more in the stern of the ship. if I can upload enough pictures I will show you what I am talking about.

The next pictures are the start of the steam ship , it is a little over 3 feet long.

The wood I am using for the keel is 1/2 inch poplar , for the ribs I am using 1/4 inch poplar.

they both look excellent models steve.......the Constitution is a work of art.
I look forward to the steamer build.........a fascinating project, and one which I am sure will be popular on here.
