Best smoke generator
« on: October 18, 2019, 06:15:19 PM »

Hi,
my next project will be a steam tug from days long gone. I am looking at something abt 100 - 120 cm long, scale probably 1:25  -  1:50 or thereabouts.


Such a model requires a solid steam plym so my question is:


what is the best smoke generator for an oldie tug? Preferably it should respond to the throttle settings...

The problem is that most 'smoke' generators use nebulisers which produce a white discharge but to be realistic with a steam tug you need dark smoke and that is much more difficult to achieve.
