Cheddar Models powered Steam Boat
This is a photograph of a model boat of the steam launch type, that I built a while ago on a "Formidable" fibreglass hull. It was an experimental model, using an electrically driven boiler feed pump. The power unit is a Cheddar Models Puffin Steam Plant. The Cheddar Models Puffin is a twin cylinder inline oscillating cylinder steam engine with a built in regulator. The model had a Cheddar vertical boiler & a Mainsteam condenser/oil trap was also fitted.
