    Fantail Launch Kit bought on ebay.
    Only problem was, the box only contained scraps and the plans.
    Being stubborn as I am I decided to build it any way๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    The plans did not call for a mahogany deck, I decided to dress her up

    Bravo, ottima scelta il mogano.
    E' uno dei legni che preferisco.

    Bravo, excellent choice mahogany.
    It's one of my favorite woods.

    I have one that I built in the late 80โ€™s. Great kit. Suggestion if you use sterno for fuel. Fire up till you get steam. Take the boiler off and put out the fire with a leather glove or something, then refill with new fuel. You will get between 25 to 30 minutes run time๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š
