  1. Possibly a bit late to start a log, but what the heck! Being an old steel boat sailor myself I never thought I could fall in love with any other type of craft. I was wrong! When I saw Charles's build log of this vessel I literally fell in love with this type of craft. Since then I have tried to learn as much about them as I possibly can. Kurt and Cathead have provided a wealth of information, and for that I am truly grateful. Previous to starting this model my main understanding of this type of vessel came from multiple viewings of the Jodie Foster ( best actress ever) film, Maver
  2. Well here we go It is a while since I have done anything like this and hopefully I will be able to craft as well as I used to I am also running a blog for this build at http://micklen32.blogspot.co.uk/ My previous builds were the Sergal Racehorse of which I have no record unfortunately Then in 2004 I built the Sergal Thermopylae. Whilst building this I built a web site which amazingly still exists at http://micklen.50megs.com/ Well that's me and my history Now some pictures of the parts and what work I have already accomplished

  4. Many years ago my first build was the AL Mississippi which was a fun build. i have now started to build the Occre version which has several major differences. I will take some photos of progress so far and post them. The photo enclosed shows my attempt at the AL version.
  5. Hi all. After the construction of the model of Armed Cruiser Averof and a time of laziness, I decided to start a new model. This time it’s the Battle Ship “Kilkis”, another warship of the Greek Navy. Kilkis (Greek: Κιλκίς) was a 13,000 ton Mississippi-class battleship originally built by the US Navy in 1904–1908. As “Mississippi bb-23” she was purchased by the Greek Navy in 1914, along with her sister “Idaho bb-24” and they both renamed as “Kilkis”, and “Lemnos”. Kilkis was named for the Battle of Kilkis-Lahanas, (an aria nearby the town of “Kilkis” at northern Greece) a crucia
  6. Ok, I realize that the OcCre Spirit of the Mississippi is a fictional rendition of a Mississippi Sternwheeler, so my question is more obstract than aimed at that specific ship. The question is when did such riverboats start to ply the Mississippi, and when did they first become floating casinos? The model depicts a full gaming facility, in nice detail, BUT, the flag it flies is a US flag with only 20 stars. That would indicate the year 1818, as the 20 star flag was only used for that one, year (Ok, from Dec 10, 1817). I didn't think steam riverboats had reached the level of lu
