Default How to make a Model Steamboat

I recently purchased a copy of Beeton's Boy's Annual for 1869 and found this set of plans in it and thought that I'd pass them along. The steam engine is quite interesting and I've made a wooden prototype based on it to test the concept. I've posted photos and a video clip of it running elsewhere on this forum.
