hi there I just realised I have no more pictures of me paddle build.  Basically, I made them from My Hobby Store plans but they are non--feathering

I'm really impressed with the fretwork cutting on the wheels, that would have driven me to insanity and the work out the window! Its looking to be a fantastic build I'm waiting for more.

What a wonderful job you are doing ,I would like to build a paddle tug but the wheels tend to put me off ,what thickness is the brass sheet? and will they be independent wheels?
Cheers

Beautiful workmanship, bluebird.
Could I ask a question please. is diagonal planking such as you have done so beautifully on your hull, easier to construct than longitudinal planking.
It seems to form around the frames a lot "happier" without twisting and lying proud of each other and therefore needing filling.
