Finally finished first ever build. Borkum steam boat.
« on: March 10, 2020, 07:49:27 PM »

So pleased to finish my first boat and a steam one at that. Iím not a perfectionist and itís probably worse than any other Borkum you can find on the internet but itís mine and it works. Thanks to members on here for the tips notably Richard and Stan and advice from Martin Baylis on how to get the things working in the first place.

Its not the finishing that matters - Its the journey along the way that counts

Bonjour Carl,
200 % success  :-))  : beautiful + visible steam plant + reasonable size + a whistle = the perfect model boat to my opinion.
I can't wait to hear her on a pond, as soon as you are allowed to navigate of course...
