Hi I've had a quick look last night but didn't turn up too much, I am looking for a 15mm paddle steam boat, anyone know of any suppliers that are making one, Laser MDF preferred but i'll look at anything at the moment, New to this period, thanks for all your help.

Inexpensive, easily constructed, and "pre-painted," types are available via the "Send A Gunboat!" line of PDF designs for card stock assembly.

Take a look for yourself by way of this link

And appropriate weaponry and fittings are available through this link

Well worth your consideration, even if I say so myself,

Emphatz,

I'm very late to this party, but a great choice would be fellow TMPer "hunter4a" AKA: "Last Stand" Dan Gurule, who scratch-builds his own guboats for sale, posted over on his blog at:

laststanddan.blogspot.com

If he hasn't quite yet he is just about to post pics of newly-built 15mm versions of his various 28mm models, as pictured here:

…and over on this other TMP page:

A few days later and I'm happy to report "Last Stand" Dan has officially opened the 15mm annex for his boatyard and posted about it here on TMP:
