The Engine Room
The Coleman disposable propane tank that feeds the burner beneath the boiler, resides in the bow, and the radio gear is mounted in the stern behind the seat.
This was by design, as to not detract from the appearance of the model, as I wanted the overall appearance to be that of a full scale 1890's steamlaunch, although scaled down.
You can see the part of the linkage connected to the servo that exits from the right of the seat and is connected to the steam throttle . this linkage needed to be reinforced, as the throttle is somewhat stiff to move when under steam pressure.
