Fulgerul gunboat

Fulgerul gunboat (0 min 46 sec)

Some Korean kid composed the music for free, over the net, and imposed it on the background of the clip. In the finished version Fulgerul is stooging around and then suddenly in time with the dramatic increased tempo of the music sets off in a most purposeful manner just slicing through the water and you just get to hear this at the end of this clip.
I take delivery of 2 Nordenfelt 4 barrelled machine guns next week and with the ships boats sorted out properly it will be time for another filming session. Fulgerul has 2 props, chain driven, not contra rotating unfortunately.

Twin cylinder steam engine, gas fire boiler. Six feet long inc ram bow.

Engine for Joe Clark tug boat. Joe Clark as built. Joe Clark with some detail - the problem was do you leave it as Joe made it or do you super detail it. I pretty much left it as it was delivered. The next two photos show similar tugs by Joe but detailed up. The last pic shows JC under the watchful eye of a member of our club.
