Question?
I would like to order items to build a steam boat.Being located in the US I find most if not all
of the suppliers are located across the pond,Trying to order items from individual suppliers
runs the shipping coast many times more then the cost of the item.Is there any way to
consulate these items in to one order to reduce the and shipping cost?
Thanks Bob

Upstate New York based-good selection of accessories -limited engines and boilers but very reasonable in price.

Hi Bob,

Use good quality white parcel string, wind it around the steam pipes and then coat it with Poly Filla or some of the plaster hole fillers that you can get, sand them smooth and paint white.

Try and kept string as dry as possible as when it condenses and becomes wet it lowers the Temp of the steam in the pipe,

George.
