A customer's Beam Engine powered by a "Miniature Steam" 4" horizontal boiler.
A photo of a "Miniature Steam" 3" Vertical Boiler (with whistle) powering a
Clyde twin cylinder engine made for a client for installation in a
Krick Borkum Steam Launch.
Following are photos of an Edwardian steam launch made by a client using a "Miniature Steam" 3" horizontal boiler, "Miniature Steam" Clyde twin cylinder oscillating engine and a "Miniature Steam" 55 mm propeller.
The boat is 1.3 meters long and there is plenty of power in the boiler/engine to drive the launch along at scale speed. Only two servos are required, one for forward/reverse/speed and the other for steering.
The following two photos show a Cervia model tug made by a client. The steam plant comprises of the following "Miniature Steam" products: Avon twin cylinder oscillator, small vertical gas tank, exhaust oil trap and 2 inch horizontal boiler. Only two servos are required, one for forward/reverse/speed and the other for steering.
The client was very pleased with the performance of the 600 mm boat in the water. He had full control over speed and direction of the motor. His comment was that the boat behaved as if it had an electric motor not a steam plant. Between runs all he did was to fill up the gas tank and boiler.
