Marten, Howes and Baylis ~ Live Steam Model Boat Kits

Page 2 of 3

'Der SeeKadett' ~ Swiss Lake Launch:

The model is fitted with a twin cylinder, slide valve, reversing engine of 9mm bore X 9mm stroke. Steam is drawn from a large capacity, gas fired boiler, fitted with a safety valve, water column and pressure gauge. Steaming time is forty minutes at sustained high speed. The model has a fibreglass hull. The cabin and open areas are panelled in alternate pear and lime, stained to represent the mahogany and pine of the prototype. The saloon has a galley and w.c. The seats in the saloon are upholstered, the floor carpeted and there is a drop-leaf table. There are two steering positions, one in the forward cockpit and one in the centre cockpit. There are over 120 brass fittings and castings in the kit (no white metal is used) . These include such details as boathooks, doorplates and handles, tread plates, taps etc. At one twelfth scale there is plenty of scope for the miniaturist to add his or her's own personal touches.
