"Medway Queen" Paddle Steamer

Built by Eric Smith in March 2007

The paddle steamer Medway Queen was built in 1924.  I have modelled her as she was in the 1930's and not how she will be when rebuilt.  It has been kept as much to scale as Meccano will allow.
 

Your Questions and Comments

Ian Davis wrote: Hi Eric, I am building a diagonal paddle engine and also a brass section of hull to mount it in. The MQ would be good, but I need some plans, actual boat pics etc. around the paddle boxes and sponsons etc. to make it. Can you help or point me in the right direction? Thanks, Ian in Australia. P.S., I have had some pics sent from the preservation society, but they don't seem to want to help any further.
