    The structural frame for the superstructure is now in place along with the 2 sides of the superstructure. The log box is being built and the little details are starting to go on.

    The bow section of the top deck is made and is now Varnished, some pins as rivets on the bow, the Rudder shaft supports with pins as rivets and now the top deck stern section needs to.be made. The stern section has gaps in the wood.

    The boiler is coming along nicely and the deck is glued down. The chain rudder servo is in place.

    I agree Joe, intriguing!
    but I might be tempted to use some plastic tubing liners on the breakthroughs through the decks and coamings.
    Otherwise you might end up with a chain saw ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    As this model will be Electric a mock boiler will be put in place for aesthetics as it can be seen clearly if you look directly front on, on the real ship. The struts that come out of the hull are for a extra piece of deck that then connects to the paddle boxes.

    Hello, Looks like you are moving along pretty well. I have never considered a paddle wheel boat, I will be watching your build with interest. Cheers Joe

    Hi Joe, paddle wheelers are very interesting such as the waverly but I chose the enterprise as she's pretty much a box and has lots of flat surfaces.

    This model is intended to be used to carry camera such as a go pro. my current camera vessel is a barge and I can't turn the barge without it looking bad on video so I wanted a vessel that can move under its own power but not too fast. The model is 1/20 and will have 2 paddles wheels, one on each side. This particular vessel is currently in Canberra NSW but it used to operate in Uchuka NSW.
