 That is how a model paddler should be powered, very well done. I see you have 1 servo opperating the steam valve, what is the other doing? R.G.Y.

Thank you.

There is one servo for the hackworth gear of the engine and the other for the steam valve.

Greetings

Of course what a fool I should have known. Have been working with oscillators for to long. Although I have built a slide valve but not in a boat yet.R.G.Y.

Hi,

your engine looks very good, this would be the ideal drive for a bigger paddler.

Yesterday I made a second voyage with the MOL. Now the wheather was fine nearly no wind - it was a pure joy!

Congratulations Tom on a great build. I know the pleasure seeing your paddler running with a stean plant can give and it is well worth the extra effort. I have no doubt that electric power is easier to get up and running and looks fine on the water but once I had sailed my first steam powered model there was no going back. In your first post you say the engine is a "slightly modified Graham TVR1A", can you tell us about the nods you did to put it on its side please. Cheers, Ian.

Hi Ian,

the Graham engine as you can buy is a vertical engine. The alterations referred that I made with simple ways a diagonal engine.
The foundation of the engine is now a acute angled sheet of alu. The engine was turned and is yet fixed with 4 screws at the shorter side of the alu sheet, so that in a simple way the conversion into a diagonal engine was succeedet - you see it at the pictures.

Greetings

Hi friends and neigbors,

some pictures at meeting for authors of german model journal on May 12th. at Gernsbach, Black Forest. My MOL and my "China", scale of models is 1 : 48.
It was a nice sunny day.

Thomas.....your China looks spectacular or the water [as she does on land]... :no1b

I have never been impressed with the MoL as even in scale as a model, her lower deck port-lights even in calm water appear 1/3 submerged

So even with epoxy cements, it must be difficult to know that each of the port-light glass windows are 100% watertight

Thanks Derek and Damian.
Through the steam propulsion of MOL the deplacement (6 kg) is extendet. But the port lights are complete watertight.

The next days I will visit my old mother - there isn`t a computer, so I can`t answer further questions until mid of next week.
