    (Working Vessel) Enterprise
    Hull is from Mobile Marine Models, much modified Steam tug Tolman. Model is based on Vic Smeeds plans of Guardsman and Customs Steam Boat Enterprise moored at Gravesend in 1930's (Motor: Cheddar Pintail V Twin ) (5/10)
    (Naval Ship) Ironduke
    The model was purchased from Cheddar Models gathering dust in the showroom. Refurbished over a period of 4 years, the original P4 steam engine was replace with a powerful twin cylinder Cheddar "Proteus" slide valve fitted with Maudsley reverse gear. The large horizontal boiler is controlled by a electronic management system to regulate the gas supply to maintain pressure and the water level in the boiler (Motor: Steam Engine Cheddar " Proteus ") (5/10)

    The original launch " Victoria" was built in 1912 by Simpson, Strickland & Co., of Dartmouth, Devon. Victoria is believed to be preserved and is now located somewhere in the U.S.A. The model is powered by a twin cylinder slide valve steam engine with Maudslay forward and reverse gear. Steam is provided by a vertical boiler, superheated to 40 psI ( 3 Bar ) (Motor: Cheddar Models "Gemini") (5/10)

    Excellent, looks just what you are seeking. German not too good but instructions would indicate that kit is very complete. I would be very interested in a progress report on the build once you run the gauntlet of "she who should be obeyed" in the house.
    Good Luck
    Roger Fullsteamahead

    P.S. would you please advise the name of the retailer your are to purchase the kit from.
    II could be interested in one myself!

    Belairdigital offer a set of laser cut parts for Vic Smeeds "Starlet" which you may find is what your looking for.
    You can purchase the plans from My Hobby Store, you will also need to supply some strip wood and thin ply for the hull.
    Nylet can supply a set of sails

    Traplet offer a plan and wood pack for a smaller version of Starlet called "Star Baby" another design from Vic Smeed. Again Nylet can supply the sails.

    Belairdigital and Traplet will have stands at the Warwick international Boat Show, so you could check out both models.

    If you do consider the Starlet is the yacht for you, I do have a copy of Model Allied Publications booklet called "Simple Model Yachts" which covers the complete building instructions for Starlet. Which first appeared in Model Boats over several months in the Mid Seventys?
    Bear in mind the sails provide the power, so a set of ready made sails from a professional sail maker is to be recommended.
    I hope the above is of use

    Just ordered several items from HobbyKing Europe as not all items required were available from UK Store. Delivery charges relate to parcel weight, distance and method of delivery. I placed my order p.m. Wednesday, goods arrived from Netherlands a.m. Tuesday at cost of
    ยฃ6.85 for tracking delivery.
    Unable to offer any advise on ESC you have requested, sorry
    I hope HK info is of use?
