Assembled in 1986. Came out of loft storage, fired up and R/C after 15 years, in August 2018. Shown here at Millbrook Lake, Cornwall. A Krick model - well documented for its origins on their webpages, but steam power arrangements have been updated from this, the so-called "Puffin" arrangement, which was the available and recommended one at the time 1.5 bar pressure and about 20 minutes running time, but often wind-dependent on keeping the gas flame intact!! With a condenser fitted, a very realistic model and great manoeuvrability... and fun!!
Hello! Joined a few days ago after retiring from abroad (18 years) and bringing my Krick "Victoria" down, from its well-cosseted storage in my loft. I put her together over 30 years ago... placed new batteries in the R/C... water, gas, squirt of oil on the engine, a long (lit) spill... and yippeeee! Just smartening her up now. A great site! Thank you
