Default Stern Wheeler almost there

A little miss alignment in the paddles. Make them slide easily. I had them a little snug and the glue grabbed before i could get them perfect. Still building and shaping the wheel covers and some more details around the stack and finish designing the cradle.

Test fired the engine today. FAILED An hour making mods and problems solved.
A few more hours dry time and it's going for the float test to see if ballast is required.
Tomorrow it's in the pool for the shake down.
I'll post pics of that in a new thread tomorrow.
Here are a couple of shots of the engine and cradle that will get a few coats of clear. It's padded with felt and has felt pads on the bottom.
Lighter rubber bands will work better I think. More wraps possible
