Claude Joffroy de Abbans (1751 - 1832) was the first inventor, who made a funktionable steamboat in 1784. Two decades bevor Fulton he navigated with his "Pyroscape" on the Saone near Lyon for some 15 minutes against the river.
The remarkable model isn`t a model of the original, he made it later, presumable ca. 1815. Obviously the engine is funktionable, the paddleshaft is driven by a double cog stake. Remarkable even the geared paddlewheels.

Looking really good Bob... Couldn't agree more about the sponson sides, so much better properly cut out as they would have been in real life!

I didnot like the idea of the stick on transfers for  the paddlewheel cover so I cut some thin plywood out then cut out the holes in the correct positions.
I thenfitted the steam plant in position.

Ok so I have got some more done to the Glasgow.
First the moldings of the vents were baddly bent so I made a new pair on the 3D printer.
Then I got the wheel wings fitted in the correct position.
