Default large scale Lake Boat



Hi all,
I want to share my Lake freighter I've been working on scince last year.
I built in 1/24 scale.
She's 12' long 21" wide and 1' depth. She's modled after a typical turn of the century ore boat.
I used 1/2" plywood for framing and 28ga steel for the sheathing.
Thanks for looking, Eric
