  1. 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
  2. The Arabia as envisioned by artist Gary Lucy; used with permission of the Arabia Steamboat Museum As a resident of rural Missouri, not far from its eponymous river, I've long been fascinated by the less-well-known steamboats that worked the “Big Muddy” from the river’s mouth at St. Louis all the way to the head of navigation at Fort Benton, Montana, an astounding 2,300 river miles. Most modern impressions of interior American steamboats are of the large, highly-decorated “floating wedding cake” craft of the lower Mississippi River, which represent a small fraction of the full dive
  3. hi all i am totally new here so please forgive mistakes i have been building this ship for a long time and so am a long way on. she is loosely based on a Vic Smeed plan. i make aplologys in advance she is not upto the standard of work on here but i aim to learn ( also i am not really good at this internet stuff) once again i know its not up to the standard on here but i aim to learn.
  4. OK, my next build is going to be the AL King of the Mississippi. Looking over the plans and photos I noticed that the bow bulwark has hawser holes. Being that you have the hawser holes wouldn't the riverboats have had anchors stowed somewhere? I have been doing research over the last week and cannot find an answer to my question. Can anyone give me some advice on this or a good place to do some research?
  5. Hello all. This is my third build log here on MSW and will be my first attempt at scratch building a ship. The ship that I will be trying to build is a Hudson River sidewheeler named the Armenia. I acquired plans for this vessel through my local model club (Connecticut Marine Model Society) and there are two main reasons I decided to build her. First I found the ‘walking beam engine’ that drives her paddlewheels to be a fascinating piece of machinery; the second and maybe the more important is that the admiral likes her too. The original plans, by F. Van Loon Ryder dated 1954, a
  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
