Stern Wheeler circa 1870-1920.
Riverboats were jacks of all trades. They served as the lifeline for cotton and inland trade, towed barges and ferried railroad trains across the river. As passenger boats, they helped to shrink the vastness of America, and as showboats, they made that vastness a little less lonely. These legendary riverboats sailed the Mississippi throughout the 19th century, following a route that passed through the most emblematic cities along the river’s banks, from its origins in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, to the mouth of the river, down in New Orleans. The main characteristic of these delightful wooden boats were the great, steam engine powered paddle-wheels.
This Mississippi kit is one of the finest and largest of its type, enabling you to faithfully recreate an excellent scale model of the era. The shallow draft of these fine boats allowed them to navigate all but the smallest of rivers. The kit contains all the parts to complete a model you'll really be proud of.
A plank on frame construction, the kit contains building plans with general details, multi language instructions, lost wax brass castings, walnut or lime planking, wooden masts and spars, brass and walnut fittings, laser etched details, rigging cord and silk flags. All sheet ply sections are laser cut for accuracy. This kit can also be motorised.
Supplied as a static display model, the hull is roomy enough to hold R/C equipment if desired. So, if you are an experienced R/C modeler, there's no limit to the fun you can have building and sailing your own authentic Riverboat.
