Thank you Barry.................it was quite querky and novel chugging round the pond and since it had independent motors......it was fun to experiment........it also had REAL smoke!......I had a little tin inside the funnel and I simply dropped inside smouldering mosquito strips!........the smell was a bit iffy!

This model prompted me to make the Jeanie Deans paddle steamer

Bob,

You keep going. I have a smoking stack in my Talacre made with a an old and empty tin of airfix paint with wires passing through it into which is placed a thin oil which smokes when a current passes through it. It doesnt give out much smoke though so am working on a different method on my next one, the Lady T steam tug. Bye for now.

Bob/ How about 2-3 pictures + 300-400 words about your model for 'Reader's Model's' in Model boats magazine?

Sorry Paul, I think you sent this to Barry instead of Bob. If you want to see my Talacre she appears with my other models at the Model Boats website. Barry Foote

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
