Where did you get that paddle wheel steamboat in the photograph?
I modified it for more advanced builders by double printing the wheel assembly and making spacer parts so the wheel is sticking out from the body. It can be built either way. the smoke is simply a Q-tip with the cotton pulled out, and sewing string for rigging.
BTW, the entire egiftshop is designed with the idea to get kids to be creative...
