Okay, so I posted some pics of the finished paddle steamer a couple of months ago. This isn't a rehash. This is a link to an illustrated post on my blog, that I wrote today, about how I scratch built her out of cardboard and MDF (mainly). I hope it might be of use.

The stern paddlewheel came out really well!

Nicely done, no armaments?

Thanks, everyone, for your kind words.

14bore, not fixed ones. It can have a light gun or MG in the bow
as shown in this shot, but unpainted.


As yet, I haven't painted a single Perry figure from the lead pile for this period and the lead pile for this period is quite something:


Though I have made a town (plus six more town sections since this shot):

Very nice work!

I can see why you haven't painted any minis, you're too busy scratch building awesome set pieces!

What a great looking vessel.

That is quite a bit. It might take the great James Roach as much as a week to paint it all!

Jesting aside I love the boat, and the town. Very nice work. I have zero interest in colonial gaming, but I am a huge fan of scratch-building projects.
