Nice realistic weathering on the model. Does the whole superstructure and masts/rigging lift off? That's a nice looking steam unit, was it home built?
Thanks for sharing it should inspire us all to get building.

Hi Dave
Nice to hear from you again
Yes the total superstructure and mast are removable to get into the steam engine
The engine is manufactured by Saito and is a single screw with single boiler and pressurises up to about 60 psi
Heated with a methanol fueled burner and runs on full steam for about 25 minutes
The unit runs very smoothly and creates smoke through a built in smoke generator for more realism
