I haven't given up on pop-pop-steamboats yet, but took
a few days of shore leave off to come up with notions
for starting some of the stuff discussion groups are
for, discussions, for example.
pop-pop-steamboats is still online at
with the same home page
picture that has been displayed for several days. I
found a source for awesome computer generated pictures
of civil war vessels on Orin Palmer's "Studio, the
Galleries" but haven't requested permission to use
them. If you would like to see them, go to:
to get an idea
about what semi-scaled models with radio controllable
pop-pop or gurgle-gurgle engines might look like. I've
never seen anything like Orin's pictures and think you
will probably agree that you haven't either.
Best wishes, old Frank
