    Ok next up was a valve to control the new whistle. It is another make it up as I go part and it
    came out pretty good. It leaks a tiny bit so a little work on the sealing surface is in order
    but overal...

    My experience is limited to two boilers one of which is still has very limited heating. That
    being said I found that silver solder ( mine was 45% ) HAS to be used on the boiler itself and
    any items th...

    Well while I'm pondering the crew of my boat some more work has gotten done. The throttle
    linkage has been figured out and most of it is done. All that is left is to mount a servo and a

    Really ? I had no idea that could be done. That gives me something to think about, I wonder if

    John, no doll house places nearby, I'll figure out something, it has to have a captain. The one

    I like a...

    Cogsy, I can't imagine pulling a full size hull off. The level of precision that those planks
    would need to be water tight would be tough. I watched a lot of YouTube videos showing guys
    building those...

    I think the major wood work is done and here is the result. Sure there is a lot of sanding to
    do, but that falls under finishing. I will add a few things like a seat or bench for the
    captain and maybe...

    I think it will be ok and I had the same thought about the radio gear. I also may hide a large
    whistle under there. There is also the added protection from a wave and it will stiffen up the
    hull. The ...

    This isnt holding me up at all this is great information. I really appreciate the feedback

    testing. I wanted...
