Sterning the Wheel

The two stern wheelers will be finished later today - one merely needs some additional fitting out whilst the second needs the wheel mount built. This part - the mounting for the stern wheel - has proven to be quite taxing and the solution I have opted for works well but it does mean that all my stern wheelers will have the same fitting. I have also rather cunningly chosen not to mount the actual wheel itself until after the hull is painted so that the wheel will be far easier to get at with a brush.

I also need to add some more gunports/hatches to the three timberclads but once this is done the whole 'schuck and jive' will be finished.

Nearly there....
