    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
