I didnt even make the Adelaide connection.... but now you say it is very similar (but when the Adelaide had "square" paddle boxes.. not its original and current "circle" ones)..
I agree with Seans "incredibly pitched roof" idea though!! Dont do it :)

Hmmmmm someone hasn't read up on Aussie paddlers.....please please please if you make this model do not put the incredibly pitched roof on that back cabin.


One of the first things I thought on seeing this model was that the rear cabin roof looked wrong, how could you carry anything on top of that!

by the way, now I re-read the mag, the 'defunct' comment wasn't part of the article but was on the 'contents' page at the beginning, the model builder appears to be quite knowledgeable about the murray steamers  :)

Pitched roofs

Almost certainly it is not a pitched roof; certainly it would not be used to carry anything.
My guess is that it represents a canvas canopy over a hatch cover, as on Oscar W.  Se the enclosed photo, and several other of Oscar W posted recently, in various threads.

Yes, that could be it, but is built as a 'cabin' to protect (and hide) the steering servo maybe?
