Mark Twain . Mark Twain sternwheel river boat as used in Disneyland. . 130 studs long minifig scale paddle steamer. This is the famous replica of a river boat used in Disneyland. I´ve actually been on board on one of these. (In Paris) Disclaimer; The "Mickey-ears" are used here for identification purposes only. This MOC is not a Disney(R) product! ;-) The rounding of the hull and the decks are the same techniques used in the Calypso MOC. As this is a river-boat with extremely flat bottom, I did not feel the need to do the whole hull. So this is more or less a water-line model. (The MOC is actually a little higher than the water-line, as the sternwheel would otherwise conflict.) Surprise; The MOC has a full interior! Close-up of the boiler-room. Complete with water-level indicator. Pressuer indicator. Furnace with flames showing. Valves for feeding-water and vapor-outlet, among other things... The bar. The draft-beer tap is not correct. All one could ever enjoy aboard this Disney ride was a Mint Julip... The luxury cabin. I suppose taste and style was somewhat different almost 150 years ago... Anyway, it looks good as a mantle-piece! Video of the moving paddle wheel; SCALE is a little akward with this MOC; The Disney Mark Twain(s) are made only to 5/8 scale, so that makes my MOC around 1:32 scale relative to the Disney replica(s), but 1:49 (minifig) scale relative to a real world Mark Twain. The MOC is pretty big, and I dont think MOCpages´ 800 pixels wide photos really do it justice, so I suggest you look at the same photos on Brickshelf, where they are available in MUCH higher resolutions; Mark Twain on Brickshelf Thanks for looking, rating and/or commenting! ;-)
