Faux Boiler – to cover a standard motor up to 800 size.

This was in a launch that I purchased, it was covering a 500 motor. I replaced it with a real boiler and steam engine. Someone has gone to a lot of trouble to simulate a coal fired boiler. If you want to build a steam launch using electric propulsion then this could be for you. It is 7″ long by 2 1/2″ wide and 10″ tall.

This is one of Tony Woodford’s models. It has been refitted, and has two new motors, new speed controller. It is ready to go once you’ve installed your own receiver and battery. It sails really well, and is a gift at the price.

Twin Screw Caldercraft Imara – project

I bought this as a project, one too many for me to complete, plus I already have three of these tugs! So, I am offering it for sale to someone with the time and skill to bring it to life. It has been built to a reasonable standard but needs a lot of re-work especially on the deck.
You can see that whoever built it was not thinking about access to the electrics, or steam plant. There are also a lot of loose parts, and other items that need repair, but not beyond the abilities of most experienced modellers.
She is well on the way to being completed, so can be on the water by summer. When finished she will make a lovely tug for someone to enjoy.

Price £320.00
