Details

Looks can be deceiving, which is certainly the case with the Creole Queen. When you study the Creole Queen you could easily place her in the days of Mark Twain, wheeling down the Mississippi as onlookers sit fishing off the bank. In actuality, the Creole Queen was built in 1983 for the 1984 New

Orleans World Fair. The fact that the Queen looks so authentic is no accident. Even though she is powered by a powerful diesel electric propulsion system, the builders at Halter Marine took every precaution to make sure the Creole Queen had the look of the 1800s. The Dumas model of the Creole Queen is constructed of precision die-cut birch and mahogany plywood. The detail package included in the kit is immense. It has stampings, wood turnings, castings, plastic parts, and a 3 page decal set. Running hardware kit #2349 is the paddle wheel drive system for the model. It includes an internally reduced gear head motor that supplies the perfect speed to the paddle wheel. For the more adventurous, the size of the Creole Queen leaves the door wide open for those modelers wishing to try less conventional powering methods. Live steam would certainly be a possible option. So if you have always dreamed of building your own working stern wheeler, the Dumas Creole Queen is for you.
