This boat was featured in Mark Twain’s novels Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. It is now available as a FULLY ASSEMBLED model ready to be proudly display as a piece of history.
Master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings and original plan. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop.
The King of Mississippi includes a four level deck with numerous details. You will find the wooden steam propeller on the back. There is an opening on the first deck where you can look inside the cabin. Each deck floor has its own stair to lead you up or down. The railings are made out of metal that can be seen on each floor. Four black smoke stacks are on the third and fourth deck.
The model is secured tightly on a solid wooden base with a brass nameplate. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.
King of Mississippi Paddlewheel Steamboat reminds us of Mark Twains famous literary characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Mississippi riverboats were jacks-of-all-trades. They served as the lifeline for cotton and inland trade, towed barges and ferried railroad trains across the river. As passenger boats, they helped to shrink the vastness of America, and as showboats, they made that vastness a little less lonely. King of Mississippi was the very first one of this type in the United States.
