    I have now completed my Sealight Clyde Puffer model. Just the figures to finish and name on the stern.
    I have enjoyed the build and hope that I have done it justice.

    Rockbag,
    That is a very nice job, looks like a real working rig.
    Be sure to take a video of it on its maiden voyage so we can enjoy!

    I have decided to fit out the ships boat for my Clyde puffer but not sure how this should be done correctly.
    I would appreciate any advice or photos to give me some idea how to complete this task.
    Cheers in advance,

    Much too cold in my garage/workshop plus a visit to my grandsonโ€™s in Taunton has meant I have just been installing the rigging.
    Not completed it yet but gradually getting there.

    Nice Job!! I'm building the Caldercraft Northlight puffer. You're doing a grand job on a "simple" boat that's not so simple. Keep at it, she's looking good!!

    Still to finish off the rigging and the ships boat.
    Not sure if I should complete the model of the ships boat and leave it upside down on the hatch cover of have it upright.

    Morning Rockbag.
    I personally think your mini mist is spot on for your model.
    For its size it is producing a good head of vapor!!
    As you know the vapor will fall to the deck as water vapor is heavier than air.
    When you have her on the pond the ahead motion and breeze will dissipate the vapor.
    I use both mist and oil variations depending on type of boat.
    I attach a video of one of my misters which as you can see shows the vapor falling (as it does)but once at sea itโ€™s fine.
    On the clip shown I do have a fairly strong fan to help it flow.
    Great model and mini mister ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘€
    Regards
    Bill.

    Hmmm!
    I'm afraid I can't give this vid a Like coz it confirms my suspicions and reservations about Mist 'Smoke' units using water. The 'cold' mist just seems to crawl out of the funnel and flops down to the deck. Not very realistic and I'm sure that the deck hands would be constantly complaining and reporting to their respective Unions๐Ÿ˜ .

    I'll stick with my heated oil smokers, despite minor aggros like oil residue on deck (adds to the weathering๐Ÿ˜). The heat driving the smoke up into the air and better simulating the Real-macoy.
    Sorry Rockbag๐Ÿ˜Œ. Otherwise I really really like your superb build. A standard to aspire to.
    Looking forward to seeing her on the wet stuff and your next build
    All the best, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    The steam/smoke generator didnโ€™t have a manufacturers make name.
    I bought it from Modelboatbits with a remote switch operated via receiver and a spare switch on my transmitter.

    Coal bunker added now so I think the superstructure is complete.
    Think I will now position the smoke/steam generator beneath the funnel.
