p9080020.jpgHi All,

Pick up october issue of model boats , with free plan of stern wheeler by GLYNN GUEST nice and simple build ,

so i thought i wil build one based on plan , BUT using my contents of my scrap box some the items used ikea blind slats for hull and decks , plus deck house and wheel house , styrene for paddles and motor house wich is total water tight,   louver made of  coffee stirrers,

, wire mesh for deck rails card for fancy frets mount board for enginhouse vents paints used acrilic artist type paint semi gloss spray sealed , power will be single motor chain driven , with rudder steering, saves having two of every thing , check out photo album for build , a 4hour build a day so far , nice and easy , and cheap , .......Larry...p9080011.jpg

Hello Larry

You have made rapid progress since you bought the magazine,the other day!

And the boiler is burning already

The fancy frills look the bizz too!

Larry, yes , like the fringe. How about making more cotton wool smoke, and putting it on a stick to pivot on the funnel when sailing (to follow the wind) ??

Where are you going to put the rudder exactly? I will be interested to see how manouverable your wheeler is!
