Artesania Latina 1/80 King of the Mississippi Paddle Steamer

Discover King of the Mississippi and its renewed steamboat wooden model kit. The real steamer was entirely made of wood and equipped with boilers to move their iconic wheelpales, these ships were the solution to transport passengers and merchandise along the river well into the XX Century.

 

Steamboats played an important role in the development of the Mississippi River basin and its tributaries allowing a convenient transportation in both directions of the river. They helped to reduce the immensity of America and as 'theater boats' reduced the solitude of this immensity. America is not just modernism: it's also romance and dreams! Dream and fall in love now with this unique model that will beautify any of the rooms at home!

 

CONTENTS:

Build the renewed 1:80 scale model of the classic King of the Mississippi steamboat. Its system of construction by means of false keel and frames will help you to build your model in the same way than the construction of the real ship.
