King of the Mississippi Artesia Latina kit #20505
Length 660mm
Height 192mm
Beam 130mm
My third build from Artesia and as usual the box came nicely package
At first inspection all is there nothing missing.
I start that kit in November 2015
But stop early in December as I start the Royal Louis

The build went well
Flat bottom easy to build
The kit do not come with a base so I just put 3 supports that will be discrete

The paddle wheel was easy to build and look good

Here ship complete

Now the kit
It went relatively well
Only 2 portion of the kit that did give me a bit of problem
The stair at the bow and adjust the balustrade no dimension all the measurement as to be take from the 1:1 drawing and as they must be equal from deck to deck it took time
The kit came short on 3 type of wood 1.5x3, 2x2 and 3x3 in sapelli
Overall nice kit to build
