Steam Kits and Ready To Run Models
We have a great selection of Kits or Pre-built Models that are ready to fire up out of the box, these all come with some fuel tablets and oil.
One of the most popular kits we sell is the Wilesco model based on an early 20th century Showman's Engine, they could be found at every funfair. It was used to drive the showman's roundabouts and to provide illumination for the fairground. These old timers were decorated with bright colours and fitted with a dynamo so that they could generate their own electricity.
