Added,
Introducing Model Marine Steam by John Cundell and Jim King.
This one came out in 1983. It does cover the basics, but there is no plans in it and with my copy the glue holding it together started failing as soon as I got it. I think that this book had been rushed into print by Argus Books after the death of Jim King.
Regards,
Gerald.
PS Still trying to get this made a sticky, maybe if everyone requests they will do it.

Any one else with books they want added to the list speak up.
We could also add plans.

also requested- as per this copy-


Please make this Brooks Resource thread a STICKY-- it is of concern that there seems to have been at least 5 requests for this

Could someone please kindly perform the few keystrokes required..?

Sorry to be impatient- but I assume for us to want to participate and post is why the forum is here - we aren't asking that much

Thanks you genuinely for assistance

I am sure Ghost is a fine person - but he / she doesn't read these postings nor act on our numerous requests to make this a sticky...so not very helpful --volunteer pay I guess...

My humble apologies if Ghost is not the moderator...I and truly sorry and did not want to paint Ghost in a poor light.

My comments stand on whoever is tasked to moderate this section...RCGROUPS must be too large for this small section to matter much...

Who was the miracle worker that got a new section suggested and put in place..?

Maybe they know the magic words to speak or type

I just asked the mods to make this a stickey and I think we should also include plans on this thread since they are in books to. I think steamboat has to fill out an fourm I am not shure of that

Hey Phil

Since you started this thread--would you consider revising the title ?

Book & Plans for Boilers, Hulls& Engines??


Might be more comprehensive

I had started the thread and had planned on starting another on plans and designs once this one had been made a sticky see post #13.
"I just asked the mods to make this a stickey and I think we should also include plans on this thread since they are in books to. I think steamboat has to fill out an forum I am not shure of that

Hi Bob I have done the "Report this Post to a Moderator" on post #1 and asked to make this thread a sticky at least three times with no results.

Gerald.
