Welcome Aboard, Looks like a great kit. Posting a log of it is great and will help folks with assisting you with questions. For first ships Its important to follow the steps in the directions this helps establish an order of assembly that is fairly innate in all builds. Take your time things go much smoother that way.

Welcome to the Forum Torpart, I will follow your build, I also have a Borkum build log on the forum, but with a few differences, ie, I will be running mine on electric motor,

Best regards John,
Thanks John, I have been reading your build log and it has helped me already. Your log is much easier to follow than the manufacturer’s instructions.

I was just wondering if you have bought the lifebelts, bollards lanthorns and bell yet, if not I have a spare set you can have if you want them, see pics below, I do not want anything for them, just PM me your address or PO box No and I will post them off to you, These are exactly the same I used on my Borkum,

best regards John.

Very interesting indeed Torpant, because I am also building a steam powered boat where i am going to use a steam engine Marcher, which is my own fabrication. And i have ordered the boiler from an Australian company: http://www.miniaturesteammodels.com
Enclosed please find a couple of pictures of my project. 20190211_165529.jpg
