    Product Description
    Discover the King of the Mississippi, a wooden model of this steamer. Made entirely of wood and fitted with boilers to move his iconic propulsion paddlewheels, these ships were the solution to the transport of passengers and goods along the river until well into the XX century. Guided by a detailed step by step instructions you can complete your replica of this beautiful ship.

    Steamboats played a major role in the development of the Mississippi River and its tributaries allowing a practical transportation in both directions of the river. They helped to reduce the vastness of America and as 'theatre-ships' they reduced the solitude of this immensity. America is not only modernism is also romance and dreams!

    Build your 1/80 scale model of the King of the Mississippi, a classic American steamer. Its construction system using false keel and frames brings the assembly of your model closer to the construction of the actual ship. The model includes laser cut board pieces, hardwood, brass, die-cast and fabric. For the assembly you can follow a complete full-colour step by step guide in 4 languages, accompanied by real-scale drawings of the ship.
