Thank you!
Vintage Boiler Powered Tramp Steamer Model Ship
Radio Control Ready

Adult Supervision Suggested!


LOA 36 1/2
"  BEAM  6 1/2"    DRAFT 1"  HEIGHT  15"   WEIGHT 5 Lbs 5 oz


Presented is a vintage, handcrafted, scratch built, wood model of an un-named steam powered ship model that follows the design of the tramp steamers that plied the worlds oceans form 1910 through the start of Word War Two. The model's super structure is painted in white with grey decks and a Robin's egg blue smoke stack, and the deck machinery in black with the hull painted black over a red bottom.

 

The model comes apart from the deckhouse forward to the center which exposes the engine room, which is fitted with a live steam engine. The foredeck is also removable.


MODEL'S DESIGN and EQUIPMENT:
The model has all the characteristics of being built by hand from scratch, and may date as long ago as the mid 1970's.The ship's skeletal construction includes hand cut frames, stringers and Balsa wood planking. The steam engine which is installed consists of a boiler in which water is converted to steam from a firebox below, which powers a single cylinder engine that drives the shaft and propeller. There are no markings on the engine. Model steam engines of this type and quality are rare and sell for $895.00 Retail with operating boats selling for $3800.00.

There is a 72.2 MHZ radio control receiver of that era that works with a single servo to move the rudder, but there is no throttle control or a reverse. There is no transmitter to activate the servo. If this model is to be used in the water, then it is recommended that it first be tested for water tight integrity, and if satisfactory, then the radio control system should be upgraded to the current 2.4 GHZ system that is current state-of-the-art. There is no visible ballast in the hull.

TRAMP STEAMERS: A tramp is a ship that does not operate on a fixed schedule. They engage in spot freight, picking up contracts as they become available. The terms "tramp," "tramper," and "tramp freighter" are more appropriate today, as very few ocean-going vessels of any kind are steamers, and fewer still are tramp steamers. The use of the term "tramp" in no way refers to the physical condition of the vessel, although some tramps can be quite run down.

CONDITION: The model is in exceptional condition for its age, and has recently been cleaned, and minor repairs made. The steam engine has been tested using lighter fuel and the felt absorbent material. The felt pad is lit and inserted in the boiler. When it boils steam is generated which turns the piston. The engine works, but there are minor water leaks at the exhaust elbow where it has been soldered, at the exhaust pipe, and other areas.

 

Fire is dangerous and safety precautions must be taken. Therefore this model is not suitable for children, and requires adult supervision if the engine is used.

 

The necessary AM 72 MHZ transmitter is missing. The model has not been tested in the water. After being out of the water for so long, it is expected that it would take time for the wood to swell and  become watertight. Expect to find some of the normal marks of age consisting of dents, minor scratches, and missing paint that, because of the model's size, don't show in the pictures.

 

BECAUSE OF ITS AGE, THIS MODEL IS BEING SOLD FOR DISPLAY ONLY.
