    Hi,
    not worth talking about - I wish you a quick recovery.
    I have been a member there for many years, and I must say that you can find there almost anything you can think of.
    I have my Lulonga quarterwheeler model there and several articles about the construction of paddlewheels. On my model, I tried using slanting padllewheel leaves. It has perhaps a little better maneuverability. But I see their use mainly only with quarterwheelers. I don't think it's useful for classic paddlewheelers and sternwheelers...I control the model with one stick - both speed and turning using the V-tail mixer (+ another stick for the rudder, which has low efficiency due to its location between the wheels)Β¨
    I added some pictures of my Lulonga
    I modified the transport trolley from the skeleton of a shopping bag.

    Hi,
    I think in that case you might take the time to check out www.paddleducks.co.uk , which is for all paddle steamers lovers out there.

    Hello everybody!
    Now I have the better version of one of the 4 wheel spokes of the rear wheel. . . But I've already found improvements, such as instead of "printing" rivets, I'll put holes and replace them with real little rivets. . Just details!
    I still really have to go to the land of Freecads-CAD. . but as I said before: you never stop learning, even in old age you learn to get older . . . . 😊😊😊
    Best regards
    Michel-Cl.
    PS:At the moment I am in quarantine due to Covid. . Shit! πŸ€•πŸ€•πŸ€•

    Hello Dave,
    It's a quarter to three in your area, we're going to bed in about 1 hour! (21.45)
    Well, as far as the rear wheel is concerned, I'll be happy to continue reporting, but I also have to rely on my buddy in the club! But I promise to keep you and anyone else interested informed. I myself have drawn 2D (laser cut) up to now, but am learning 3D. Let's see how fast my brain learns this stuff!
    But please give me some time, because in between I also have two repair jobs on other ships that have priority. . .
    Best regards
    Michel-Cl.

    Hello Mike, I am interested in the paddle wheel you are printing. Can you give more details and pics as you go. Keep up the good work! Dave

    Hi Doug!
    Google knows everything, but apparently not! πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
    Ask Doug, he'll know for sure, thank you very much!
    Now I can keep tinkering!
    Best regards
    Michel-Cl.
    Ps: here is the first 3D printer test for the rear wheel

    Hi M-C,
    "position lights are located on the Mississippi Sternwheeler. . .
    Just couldn't find it."
    I'm not surprised, she very likely didn't have any!
    Esp. if she was built and operated in the so called golden age of Mississippi Steamboats, ca 1810 - 1850.
    Coloured sidelights for orientation were first proposed in the UK in 1958.
    Edit: OOPS! 1858 of course πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜‰
    The USA had been adopting UK rules (Trinity House and Admiralty) since 1850.
    Before that probably at most a white mast light was carried - if that, until 1848 there were no binding regulations for NAV lights for steam ships at all.
    The first international regs for NAV lights were ratified in the 1890s I believe (1897?).

    If I were you I'd just fit a white mast head light and cabin/deck lights and be done with it.
    Cheers, Doug 😎
