Follow the link on the Australian hull site for his build instructions on the Unofficial Mamod & Other Steam Forum. I have only ever built a Midwest Steam Launch, but looking at his instructions makes it look possible for someone with my limited skills to succeed. It is the best set of instructions I have ever seen.

I actually thought of that hull myself at one point. I no longer have the right boiler and have been running steam locomotives instead. I scratch built a hull with a vertical boiler and Graham engine back in the 90's. That was a fun project and a beautiful model. Good luck.

This is my steam locomotive:

Hi,
I have a Windermere hull with full size plans from Kingston that I will sell.
I don't know what size boiler you have but there have been several made with TVR1a in them.
PM me
