Description

Model (scale 1:32). The succesful development of the steam turbine was due to Sir Charles A Parsons and his experimental yacht, the 'Turbinia'. She was the first vesel ever to be propelled by turbine machinery. The T.Y. 'Tarantula' (Inv 1924-0445), built in 1902, is of special interest because of her similarity to the 'Turbinia'.
