A steam driven Paddle Launch'

Power Steam

By Basil Harley

   I HAVE designed Nina as a simple steam driven model paddle launch 'in the spirit of' those open-engined vessels which sailed our lakes and rivers in Edwardian and Victorian days. She is very suitable for beginners and all sorts of modifications can be made to the basic plan to suit individual tastes. She is not a scale model of any particular vessel because none is known to survive. The photograph, from the archives of the Windermere Nautical Trust, shows the open, tiller-steered paddle steamer Fairy Queen built on Windermere as early as about 1850 by Charles Fildes which has served as my inspiration.

  The power plant I have used was described in detail in Traditional Steam Engines column. The Unit Steam Engine and boiler fits easily into the hull without any modification. A spigot, either a piece of brass tube or a flat piece of brass bent up as I used for Mabel will need to be screwed to the copper boiler casing to hold the funnel which in my case was rolled up from a bit of tin plate or it can be made from an aluminium cigar tube. The 'Mecca no' steam engine, made by Mamod 80 Ltd and now sold under their catalogue number SP3 is also a suitable power unit but a belt drive will have to be devised to turn the paddle The hull is a simple box made from three nieces of balsa wood. It is flat-bottomed
