Wooden Ship Kits

King of the MississippiKit


This authentic Mississippi Paddlewheel Steamboat reminds us of Mark Twain's famous literary characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Mississippi riverboats were jacks-of-all-trades. They carried cotton and inland trade, towed barges and ferried railroad trains across rivers. They helped to shrink the vastness of America and as showboats they made that vastness a little less lonely. Mark Twain would need to look twice at this “King of the Mississippi” to be sure it was just a model!
