I used the cylinders of the Mark Twain Kit (Krick Modellbau) from the 1990-tis and combined they with the piston slidges of the Regner 12/36. Connection rods, the engine base and some other parts are home made. The engine is now working, but fine adjusting is still necessery

Today I made the right adjustment. The engine is running smoothly from 0,5 bar on. Steam consumption is rather high with regard of stroke 60 mm and bore of 12 mm. The engine is much more original than the oscillating before.

 :)  Good morning;
 Wonderful realization, but I would make a small remark (and I am ashamed  :respect ) pity that you can not hide the plastic joints of the rudder controls.

Thank you. But on the pictures I see by myself - the plastic rudder controls are disturbing. I will consider to hide them or replace them by metal parts.

Metal parts would look much nicer and need no hiding 😀

Hi friend and neighbors,

hope you will enjoy at the pictures of the "Zambezi" ex "Zulu". I made they yesterday at a small pond not far from the upper Danube.

It`s not on the Danube. This is a small pond about 4 kilometres far of the upper Danube at the city of Ehingen. Unfortunately in the heat of summer the pond now is full of water weed, at time it is not possible, to drive a shipmodel.
