The African Queen full hull version

I used MS Paint, and Gimp to design. I really like the wood textures in Gimp. Below is a picture of a wooden version that I based my design on.
First thing I made was a stand for the boat. I glued it to a sprite box.

I had to redesign the hull twice before it was right. I made a middle spline with sprite box to make it stronger.
Then started building the deck.

The little box attached to the deck is for the mast. Next supports for the deck.

One of the support goes against the back before putting the deck on. Then finish gluing the rest of the hull.

I found out that I needed a support for the open triangle space in the front of the boat, but I forgot to take a picture. Next the board that goes around the inside top. Next the top deck glued to a sprite box. The mast is in the picture too.

Now for 20 small parts that go under the board that is around the inside top, and the 4 boards that go round the inside edge of the top deck.
