fun to build, I got the gears to work but dont try to motorize it due to the drive gear teeth do not mesh with main gear of engine ,never the less everything fit well.

"Fun and historically valuable"
clunymike
What a fun little model to build! It's hard not to start playing with the figures. . . It's a good value, good details, very little trimming excess plastic, and it's fun to represent the world's first commercially viable steamship. Drawbacks are few: I think you need to be pretty advanced to get the gears to work, at least more advanced than me (I'm not sure how you'd paint them if they were to actually spin the paddle wheels either. . .) However, they look just fine stationary, and their lack or mobility really doesn't take away from the model; I think that the Manufacturer used the 20th century replica of the Clermont rather than the actual boat. I'm not sure if plans for the original steamship are extant, but there are many illustrations from the early 19th century, and the ship looks slightly different, though that could be an artistic flourish. Overall, the model is enjoyable to build, and makes a proud display.

What a handsome model it is, was pretty easy to build and alot of fun as well. Took a little time to clean the gears so they would mesh properly qnd drive the padlle wheels smoothly, however the finished model is well worth the effort, would mqke a nice RC boat.
