Mississippi Paddlesteamer
Based on a real Mississippi steamer called the Delta Queen
About this creation

I built the wheel first, as it is the most technical part. It also dictated the scale to a degree. The chain passes into the boat where it is connected to a LEGO motor and battery box, so that the wheel turns.


At the front of the boat is a gangplank, which swings to either side and can be lowered to allow passengers to board. When the boat is under way, it is raised up to this position.






The bridge, and the funnel.






The boat is full of interesting groups of passengers, like this school party.

*writes out a million dollar check* Take this and move to a place close to the main LEGO works. DO IT. Joking. But, seriously, go to the main LEGO works.

Wow! This is really impressive. I stumbled upon this creation in looking at some LEGO river boat designs. This has to be one of the best (if not the best) that I've seen. Sheer size and all the extra details make this creation a spectacular river boat. Great job on the design of the paddle wheel as well.

This is one of the nicest, probably the nicest ship Iīve seen here on MOC.pages. Excellent work, the detail is amazing, and the paddle wheel is just awesome. Why didnīt your ship become MOC of the day?! Why is it this stupid robot? This here is quality, and proof of an exceptional and huge effort in creating. I think itīs just not right that the MOC of the day seems to be totally random. Your ship is my MOC of the day... Steffen

Wow, this is some pretty serious steam boating. Does it float? I agree, great propellors, wish there were some how-to photos on that. I'm looking at building something similar for an oldstyle hydro power plant
