Kim,

this assembly looks very well. I like the appearance of the not so heavily worn boiler. And the red color of that stern wheel is really something  Smiley. I don't really know anything about boats. Whenever I see a ship with a boiler over water line I can't imagine those things wouldn't tipple over due to the high barycenter.

I'm looking forward - thanks for posting.

Volker

Good point Volker the way I look at it that there should be only one paddle holey in the water at once too many would create too much drag. Once you set that up it will give you the centerline of the steam chest. The center of gravity should be near the bottom of the hull and in this case, it is flatboat and quite wide it should work. The area that is causing me concern is the wheelhouse area and fitting it all in without it looking clumsy.
Hoping that all is well in Germany.
cheers

Loving the detail as this goes along.  Maybe a set of "Duck Rudders" added aft of the Paddles would be in order for those tight maneuvers and steering in reverse. Would add some more detail in the back of the boat.

yes, a couple of big rudders people ask what is the purpose of such a boat.? There is a small cargo area behind the wheelhouse but its main purpose is a tug imagine a couple of barges behind going up the Congo River.

Afternoon all how are we going looks like we are heading for a very economically challenging time anyway.
My challenge is now becoming more pacific in its style and location. In the first picture, it shows a river paddlewheel tug operating on one of the large rivers in NSW Australia. This area is tropical and the prize is Australian cedar timber once common now very exotic perfect for my build. The next is the wheelhouse and last is the water supply tank which is located behind the wheelhouse construction styrene and wood weathering oil paints.
cheers.
