Steam models

Having just encountered the wonderful steam models page of Forest Classics in the UK I was amazed at the range of steam models now available. It used to be mamod and more mamod, but little else – now it seems there are many manufacturers of high quality kits and assembled live steam models – from stationary beam engines like this one from Sussex Steam Beam & Mill Engine Kits

to full-on radio controlled live steam cars, like this model 1907 stanley steamer from the MiniSteam company…

After seeing a mate run his radio controlled petrol driven model race car up and down our street, I thought nah, I prefer steam!
