Default New model sidewheeler

After a bit of planning to build a model of the rafter Clyde i have decide not to. Many of you have given me references for the Clyde which i very much appriciate but there is still very little information about it. That being said here is a photo of my next model. It is a 1/24 scale model sidewheeler of my own design but will closely resemble the upper Mississippi rafting steamers such as the Clyde. I have never built a boat from my own ideas so this should be fun but since i have built so many this should also be easy. The only limit to it is my imagination and according to my wife thats a scary place. It will have all the usual animations. Electric drive, smoke, whistle, lights, and sound. I am open to any ideas from all you professional steamboaters as the model progresses. Stay tuned.
