I want this!

Very cool.

It's pretty cool. I just don't understand why the boiler/steam engine is below the bridge? There is a long distance to transfer power to the paddle wheel, and if something goes wrong… no more bridge!

Nice work! Might it make sense to extend the ladders with vertical rails of some kind?

About boiler placement, this article would seem to support the arrangement:

This looks great! Could be a candidate for my Sudan project. Which scale is it? 28mm?

Kitwood Hills make something very similar:


which would, I think, make a sound basis for conversion into a Nile gunboat.

I am just wondering if O gauge would be too large for Perry MIniature's 28mm figures.

It's technically a bit large but I think it would work fine.

O scale is around 1/43 to 1/48 and 28mm is about 1/56
