Historic 19th century steamboat paddlewheeler wood kit is exceptionally realistic. The hull is solid pine, and many other wooden parts are pre-cut birch.
The superstructure is a modeler's delight with its pilot house, cabins, machine turned smokestacks and boilers. A sheet of photo-etched brass parts gives your model eye-catching precision and detail.
White metal windows, doors paddlewheels, lifeboats and anchors are included, and there's a generous supply of brass and copper fittings. Deck and cabin walls are planed in walnut and basswood.
Six giant sheets of plans plus an instruction manual. Display base and pedestals are not included. Although complete plans and instructions are included, the limited English instructions provided require critical thinking and some modification as needed.
This is not a build by numbers kit, and is not for everyone. Additional technique books, and or access to the advice of an experienced wood modeler or wood model club is recommended.
