This is a fun build, it came from the Norm Marshall Toy book that I bought back in 1983 right at the time I bought my first Shop Smith.

I love this book was what got me into building models and toys.
I’ve seen many a toy on here and else where using these plans to get started in the hobby or addiction in my case. LOL

Here’s my first Steam boat, 1983 or there abouts.

And the new one.

You’ve certainly developed from a good toymaker to a great model maker Bruce; along with the superb tutorials you put together to share your craftsmanship with so many others… THANK YOU SIR!

Very well done collection!

Building toys gives you the obligation to “test-DRIVE” them!

Looks good enough to go down the Mississippi. Great looking paddle.
