Sultana steamboat by Elye Posada


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I’m new here and have been working on a model of the infamous Sultana that sank in the Mississippi River at the end of the American Civil War in April of 1865. Her sinking took the lives of over 1800 union soldiers who were heading home. 

 Sultana II, which will be her name, is going to be 3ft 8in long, and 10in in width. Her height is yet to be determined. She will be capable of going into the water with her engine and paddlewheels.

 Hope you all will enjoy watching her rise.

This was a process I used to make the hull look smoother and completely waterproof.
