ggrieco Posted October 3, 2015 Share #1 Posted October 3, 2015 Hello Everyone, Several years after the excavation, we think we have enough information to attempt the reconstruction model of this early steamboat. The excavation provided some wonderful information about the hull up to and including the deck and Dr. Kevin Crisman's research has provided the details of the appearance and arrangement of the upper works. I've already started on two 1:24 waterline models for the Oklahoma Historical Society. The finished models will be complete reconstructions with cutaways highlighting the machinery and other artifacts recovered during the excavation on the hull. The next couple of months I will be focusing on the engine and boilers. The research is ongoing and I'd love input from anyone interested in steamboats and steam engines. Although we have a good idea about the overall appearance and layout of the vessel, there is very little info out there about construction details, joinery etc. I would like to make these detailed and accurate as possible so any ideas that anyone has would be greatly appreciated. hexnut, Omega1234, avsjerome2003 and 36 others 39 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
