I remember seeing a guy called Geoff Wolfe flying a steam powered model aircraft at one of the big shows maybe at Old Warden.
There were more people watching his Comet fly than any other model that day.
Oh dear that has got me thinking that it might be a nice challenge for my newly acquired mini lathe.
More on the Comet here link

Radio controlled models, too, over a hundred years ago. That surprised me a bit.

What a lovely book, I can only hope my paternal Grandfather learned his model steam knowledge from similar publications.
