Nicely done. They are a fun build. I built the Mantua paddelwheeler. It had 6225 pieces when complete and finished it in 700 hours.
Happy modeling,

Excellent work, I am looking with more interest at this type of ship now. I will just finish my current nine kits then get one of these.

Happy Modelling.

Thanks for all the nice words.
This was really a nice and enjoyable build after a break of more than 20 years, I can recommend this kit for those who like paddlesteamers.

@John
This is also a kit from Artesania Latina, so you can build her already ;-) .
Regards,
Wim

Thanks Wim,

Yesterday we where at Sjaaks Hobbyshop in Leiden.....
And I saw the king of the Mississippi and it was hard not to buy it.
But he was cheap!
Maybe after an while when the Mirage is almost finished( year of 3-4-5......)
