    let's have a look at this sandy boiler. perhaps i could help. i guess you'll need a steam engine to run if you're building a boiler.

    perhaps a steam engine would be a could project?

    if we went w/ castings, we could build for ourselves and sell one to cover the costs. this is what i believe to be a good way to go about it. if there's 3 of us, buy 4 kits and sell one to pay for the kits (or at least offset the cost by a bit).

    i'd like to build a Stuart 10D or a Stuart Beam engine this time 'round. if you're thinking bar stock build, perhaps we could go w/ one of the many rudy kouhoupt models.

    what say you? perhaps you have something in mind....?

    The Stuart 10D will nicely power a model launch... I'd be up for that..

    The 10D is a nice engine and one of the TSME members has some for sale, but a launch and boiler would be on the big side. What about the the Paddleducks engine it is 1/2 inch bore I think (I can post a link from my main computer if wanted I am on a tablet right now).
    Reegards,

    Id still like to make a Stuart 10D (model tug instead of launch ;) ) although the paddleduck is on my TDL.

    Do you have contact info for the TSME member's contact info?

    i don't recall mentioning anything about using a 10D for a launch. i don't think ppl use stuarts (other than the sirius) for this sort of thing....at least i wouldn't.

    much better options out there for sure.

    i am looking for a hull 36" or better for a project. i have boilers and engines, so i really just need a hull. perhaps you know of one?

    i ask because your name suggests you may know a thing or two about this sort of thing. :D

    i wasn't aware you were putting together a steam launch. i wouldn't recommend the stuart 10's for that sort of thing.

    There is a well known design for a launch that uses the D10 but at 51" long may be a bit big as steamboatmodel says, its called teh "Wide Awake" steam launch. Ex member from here Ramon is making a very nice one at the moment. The stuart 10 range of engines have been used in many model marine applications over the years as have their larger engines in both model and full size.

    It was me who said 10D for a launch... but really I meant tug. Would you be interested in scratch building? If so there are many plans you can use depending on type you want to build.

    Hello.
    I am interested in diving into a build for the very first time. I am amateur with 12x36 Asian lathe, 3.5" Taig and Craftex round column mill drill. Could soeone on the string let me know if there is an opportunity to get involve with a build?
    Thanks

    got a bit side tracked the last year. perhaps we could resume this thread and build something collectively?

    i have yet to build anything IC, so i'd love to start there. i have so many plans, let me have a look and post a few of them.
