This is the Thoroughbred model 1:600 scale Tinclad steamboat that I modeled as the USS Fort Hindman. After building, I added the two forward masts out of plastic rod. I added all of the deck railings and the derrick on the upper deck, are also out of plastic rod. I built the funnels of the sunken steamboat out of plastic rod that I drilled out and glued in place.
