Question
Clyde Puffer build

Greetings. I was wondering if anyone out there is at this time or has been building a Clyde Puffer using the Orion Molding's ## inch Puffer hull??? I talked with someone by the handle of "gordinir8" several months back, are you still around?? Like to hear from you or anyone else building a Puffer... Regards CplFuzz

Here is a pretty extensive build log of a Puffer. He makes his own hull, but the rest may be helpful.

Thanks C Thrower, I'm at about the same point in my build, I'm fitting the steering servo and steering chains to the tiller today. I like some of his ideas. The Puffer I'm building is a earlier version with out the wheel house, the helm is open with the ships wheel on the deck behind the engine housing. I already have a 48 inch model of the Vital Spark and I had this smaller 33 inch hull already from Orion Moldings. Here's a picture of my VS and kind of what I'm building to. Too bad about the guys stuff getting busted up, and yea, either some kids or jealous modeler, sounded like a get even thing. Thanks again. CplFuzz
