1/18 Major Sternwheeler Kit

Post by Xiaoshan_Sailor »

Do we have anyone here who is into sternwheelers? I helped develop a 1/18 scale Major towboat kit with a local model boat supplier where I live, mainly to get one for myself. Am not actively selling these but did send the initial run to some folks in the States who were impressed with the kit.

There's a thread over on the RC Groups Dock Talk forum that shows many photos of both the kit & initial build. It's currently available for sale on Aliexpress but if anyone would have interest, feel free to post here for more details.

Could be an interesting basis for conversion to a riverine ironclad or Ram.

Xiaoshan_Sailor: Ignoramus here, is that a type of river boat used for pushing barges?
