Vital Spark Clyde Puffer Plans

vital spark clyde puffer blueprintsWe told you a little about the Clyde Puffer Vital Spark and Captain Para Handy before, when we posted Lochinvar Clyde Puffer plans. Vital Spark is a fictional puffer in stories of Scottish writer Neil Munro . It is mostly known from tv series on BBC. The puffer used in the series was the puffer Saxon .

The plans are mode detailed and cleaner than Locihinvar. You can find them both in .dxf and .pdf formats. There are hull line plans, deck plans and rigging plans in the set. Puffers are nice models to built. I can not say they are so easy, but one of the easiest scale model ships to build.

SteamBoat Scale Model Plans

SteamBoat Scale Model Plans DampfPinasse


Here is a scale model hobby plan for a steamboat around 1900’s. Plans are in German. The plan includes also RC circuit diagrams, which may help for RC model builders. A common mistake for model ship building is assuming that the small boats are easy to build. It is actually about the details. For example the planking may not be that important if you are gonna paint the hull. But if it is just going to be lacquered, mistakes will be visible.
