A TinShed 10 in 1 Paddle Steamer (Plenty of Pics)
« on: January 10, 2018, 02:52:00 PM »
I mentioned in another thread,that I was intending on building a Steamer for my son.
So here it is.It's a bit of a Swiss army knife of a Cereal packet build around an earlier steamer design.(I've not taken pictures of each version as its possible to put it together way more ways,than ten mentioned in the title.)
Mark.

Cheers Chaps,
He does like his boat.Unfortunately it's shot me in the foot as now the youngest wants the 'Sirius ' for his Captain Haddock.
It's my own fault I'd made my older kids pirate ships when they were small.(Properly wounded at the time took them down to Nottingham at the time for a shoot and was handed a new copy of WI with Gary Chalks plans in ,two months after I'd made them so they couldn't be used as we'd both come up with similar solutions.)

The bottom picture (in the first set) is the boat in 'storage',

Here's a couple of pictures to show how it breaks down,including how the paddle housings attached,and the gun is just an old paint brush handle its a pretty bog standard build for me (use this method alot).

Everything is designed to hold a figure including the lifeboat and the paddle housings.

Mark.

That's a worrying coincidence.🤔

We've been fostering on and off for years now. On Friday an adoption information pack from Hull City council turned up with the post.(we didn't ask for !)

Anything you'd like to confess Mason?😄

Oh no - he's not up to his old tricks again, is he? I thought when I sent him to boarding school, that'd be the end of it!

He's right though - a thoroughly spiffing build; congratulations.....!
