Thread: Mamod marine engine
08/12/2018 10:01:09

Hi Tony, I picked up your post about PS Prunella a few weeks ago when I was hunting around for information on steam powered model boats. I have both the Meccano steam plant and the Mamod engine with shaft and propeller, both of which were acquired in the early 70s, and which have lain around waiting for a project ever since. I did build an electric powered PS Cleopatra in my youth (long since gone to Davy Jones) and I had the idea that this might be a suitable subject for the Meccano engine. I was just dusting off my old SS Maria plan for the Mamod, but on seeing your post I've purchased the plans for PS Prunella. However, I've had no luck in finding the Model Boats articles on the boat and the engine. If you have these in your collection, I wonder if you would mind scanning them into this forum so I could pick them up from there.

Thank you very much in anticipation.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
