That is one FANTASTIC boat! Could we have more details about it?
What is the hole in the foredeck that the hatch covers?
Regards,
Gerald

Bernhard, I do not think the Diana hull could have gone to a better home. You build incredible steam boat models! The Lady Jane is stunning! The African Queen looks gritty and authentic. Just awesome!

Thanks to both Steve and Bernhard

Steve, I too, am most grateful for your help. Specifically, a few months ago, thank you for recommending Model Marine Steam, and most recently, directing me to the retailer of the Diana hull, which I ordered this week.


Bernhard, Your work was the inspiration that led me to pursue the Diana hull. Thank you, Sir.

Respectfully,

Ooby

The look of a finely crafted steam engine and boiler with all the tubing, valves, guages and the sights, sounds and smells of the engine steaming up and running will always be a "show stopper". They remind me of time machines.
