So like always I follow the directions that are very straight forward.  I try to think about painting and finish before I start.  I enjoy these basic kits but I am certainly wanting to go big...

I built the building board.  I always do whatever I can in order not to have to put tacks through the bottom of the hull.

I ended up cracking the one side of the planking due to one of the frames being out of whack...it didn’t bother me enough to fix it lol84D1C44C-C4CB-4306-BC3C-85F79AFE319A.thumb.jpeg.ff295950e458115190bc323f09fd8f65.jpeg

I had a blue color I happened to like, it is a little darker then what the plans call out, but I like it.

I have one side of the boat mostly finished and I floor planking done...I need to add a semi gloss to them or not, haven’t decided.  Should have this wrapped up if work goes well.

I think a lot of small boats make wonderful models. Yours is looking great.

Very nice job on this one. I love these little Midwest kits to bad they are getting so hard to find.

 

Regards Art

I bought just about every type I could find lol...their are still quite a few at a good price on eBay.  I even found a two seater Chesapeake bay kayak 😆

Another one completed.  Would definitely recommend any new modeler that wants to get his feet wet without diving in the deep end to pick up a Midwest kit.  I believe even that hardest ones still have great plans, instructions and material.621DF21B-9ECE-491C-B644-D0D08F838D5D.thumb.jpeg.93c16f2b0956a5ba073ae75da958a667.jpeg

It looks really nice! I completely agree about the Midwest kits. They are a great intro for beginners. It’s a shame they aren’t still being made. 
 

What do you think you’ll tackle next?

I will be starting two logs actually 😝
 

Following In the wake of the ridiculous money I have spent on eBay, I will be starting a Peterboro Canoe which is a level 2 kit and one I am hoping to do a nice job on and also a Artesania Latina King of mississipi but this kit is probably 80’s...it’s also advertised as 1:50 scale which I don’t think it is, the newer ones are 1:80 I believe.

I’m excited to see this build; I really like the riverboat models (someday I’ll hopefully build one). I’m sure you’ll do a great job on both!

Very nice collection of Midwest builds you have there. I am following a couple on e-bay right now I hope I can snag them. I also have the newer King of the Mississippi waiting in the queue. I will be looking for your thread and following along.

This is the first time I've seen those photos of your Midwest models and they're all very nice. At some point, I want to build a small, working boat and attempt to do some weathering on it and make it look like a real, hard working boat that been through the wringer but still going strong.

I inherited this kit from a keen modeller and professional cabinet maker and I’ve brought it down from my loft 15 years later! He started it and put it back in the box but unfortunately without the instructions 😞

Are these available anywhere?
