The Edwardian 26' was designed by Selway Fisher in the early 1990's for a local client who wanted her to cruise the Kennet & Avon on.
The original was to be powered by an inboard diesel but since then several have been built all round the world using both steam and electric power, with various different lengths 36' and beams up to 8'. The bow style has also been modified from clipper to vertical stem. Below are some photographs of the real launch in various different guises.

The photos above are of Mike Bell's 30' x 6'10" version.
The model plans consist of two A1 sheets - the first gives the full model sized moulds, inner stem and counter stern shapes for a 1:7.5 scale model giving a model length of 1.066m (42").
The second sheet gives side profile, plan and several sections through the launch plus approximate position of the steam power unit, propeller etc and material sizes for the model. The hull would be built using the plank over frame method and the steam unit shown is the Krick Alex 2 cylinder model with a vertical boiler.
