Louise Steam Launch (CON80834) Historic Scale Wooden Model Ship Kit by Constructo Ship Model

Plank on Bulkhead Construction
VICTORIAN STEAM LAUNCH
At the end of the 19th century, pretty little steamboats like the Louise were a common sight on the River Thames. Usually between 20 to 40 feet in length, powered by a simple but efficient boiler system and cooled by water from the river itself. Many of them, after 100 years of service are still in operation today.
You’ll use traditional plank-on-bulkhead construction to build the Louise Steam Launch. Most wooden parts are pre-cut, fittings are cast in white metal and brass, and all parts for the steam engine and boiler are supplied.
