Mount Washington
« on: March 03, 2007, 01:52:26 PM »

Never built a sidewheeler before, nor a beam engine (even if it is a "mock-up).
This is about 5' long and 14" max beam, but the hull is only about 7" in beam. Horrendous job trying to balance it, and I failed really. The only way it balances is to lift the engine out which rather defeats the purpose. Although I like it, I'm
considering chopping the hull  down and flogging it off as a "static" model. This one comes apart in various sections, i.e.
all the decks and engine are removable individually.

No. Try ...preusser.kg...go to the manufacturers site and you will find thousands (maybe I exagerate). The UK dealers charge far too much. They come in various scales and i think they are aimed at both the model railway and architectural fraternities.
