USS Coeur de Lion-Magnus Mörck 1/250 free

Hello everyone,

I start the new ship: USS Coeur de Lion 1/250
waterline and full hull
the original ship:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Coeur_de_Lion
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Ge...e_Custis_(1861)
Today is exactly 159 years ..


Ship designer: Magnus Mörck, currently available for download:
Modeling Resource and Downloads Center

The barge and the airship are not yet certain.

Others have already built it here.

Regards, Joe

I am pretty sure that a ACW era balloon is available from Fiddlers Green. You might have to recolor it.
Here is a model of the balloon barge. The model was on display at Mariner's Museum

Here is another barge model, this model has propeller which is incorrect since the barge was not powered

I also have doubts about the model hulls, which don't look particularly barge like.
This is a short video of a model late 19th c. barge

and a picture

Nice to see your work Joe.
Will this take a place in one of your dioramas?

Help !

I built in the deck houses and the outer cover, and i made a new deck.

I would like to ask a question: Where is the rudder located?
I circled the questionable part on the photo. Any information (tip, picture, text) is welcomed.
Thanks in advance!

Best regards: Joe

The previous wheels could not be separated at the waterline, new paddle wheels were made ...
I painted the parts.
