Spotlight Review

iltcruz (Leesburg, FL,)
I usually put together the sailing ships like the San Francisco. But I decided to try something different. This ship certainly was that. It looks simple in the picture but was very challenging to assemble. The detail is fantastic. The paddle wheel does turn freely and you can make the doors move too. I did leave the railings brass instead of painting them. It also sits flat on the shelf so I didn't have to build a stand. My wife loves it and it will be displayed in the living room not in the ship room with the others. She says the only thing missing is the smoke coming out the stacks. I will defiantly recommend this boat.

"quality product"
just finished the king of the Mississippi steamboat took almost 3 months working sometime almost every day. I have built sailing ship models but this was by far the most challenging. the finished model is outstanding. like one gentleman in a previous review said his wife was going to display it in the living room. I was kind of skeptical about that comment but the same thing happened to me. in thirteen years of marriage my wife was never to interested in my projects but she too is wanting to get a display shelf for the model. patience is something you need if you are building this model. it is surely an advanced kit but well worth the effort. artesania latina built an outstanding quality kit

I wander if they have a motor to run the paddle wheel? am looking forward to putting this together..

"king of the Mississippi"
approximately 6 months to complete but enjoyed every minute of it. Made a few mistakes along the way but because of how busy the boat is only I know where the mistakes are, unless YOU look closely. Came up short with the railings but the manufacturer sent me what I needed. If you go to my pictures you will see what this boat really looked like on any given day. On to my next project, USS Nimitz. 38 inches long, can't wait to get started. Richard
