  1. I can't really call this a build log because I didn't start the build, I received this partially built Creole Queen from a friend over on the east Coast of Florida. The original owner and builder had health issues and had to move away and could no longer finish the Creole Queen. I had not to long ago retired from ship and boat building, but being a sucker for a unfinished boat project, I just had to take on the project and due to the original builder being famed builder Tony Lombardo, that was like icing on the cake for me. Here are a few pics of her as I received it. I started out by staining .5mmx8mm limewood strips with red mahogany stain and applying them to the decks. This was not allowed for on the kit, but I hate painted decks on boats, that to me is like a cop out. Next, I will look at drilling and installing the three rudders and rudder assist fin which goes up towards the middle of the hull, which assists in turning the boat.
  2. I everybody. Few comment before the photo. The creole queen by dumas is not what expected from me. This is a boat made for RC more then collector,so everything is more...looking for the best word. Never the less,not easy to built. The length is the first problem,to translate all info the boat as tendency to twitch. But i am moving forward. Problem,of yesterday,i fond out the wing of pilot house was to large,so the fence build with coper rod has to be remove for reduction and cut the wing to be equal to the previous floor,so the beam support under the floor will fit.
  3. Taking a deep breath and starting all over again with this buildlog. Luckily Ik kept a log on Donnie's site . After 4 ships out of the box (kit) it was about time to build a ship from scratch. I decided to build the Creole Queen riverboat, a commercial paddlesteamer from New Orleans. On a scale of 1/82 the total length will be about 85 cm. I ordered some plans from Dumas for their RC-kit and started to draw my own plans. I will take a lot of time for this build. The original: Dumas drawings, nice but not for the hull, no details on the plans. Their plans were meant for RC-models and not for scratch-build. Making my own drawings: Keel and frames: Middle and stern almost fixed: "Planking" To be continued in part 2 Wim
