1/24 Whaleback Freighter Build Log

Check out this 19th century replica build of the historicngrain and ore cargo vessel.


Cargo vessel build recreates history.

From RCGroups.com user Eric Klein:

Hi all, just sharing my new project. It's patterned off of an 1890's whaleback freighter.

I have a weakness for big boats. I live in the Keewenaw Peninsula near Eagle river, about 4 miles from Lake Superior, fun to float my boat in.

Without machinery it should weigh about 100 lbs. I would LOVE to run steam in my boats but money is short right now, so for now they are kid powered - big and small.
