Work has begun on the river steamer for Nova Hungaria. I found a large piece of thick cardboard for the main hull and various scratch pieces for the structures on deck. It is at a very early stage: I covered the edge of the cardboard with glue-soaked paper strips so the following plates would adhere better; added the smokestack and the traversable gun turret (that can hold a repeater gun or a naval cannon).
Upper deck with cabin for the non-combat steering wheel. Everything will be removable so figures can fit into the lower cabins. The roof on this cabin is removable too.
Initial work on the gun turret that holds a gun from the Zvezda GNW artillery box that I deemed large enough to do the job (it's over 3cm long that is 216 cm IRL if I counted it right).
