This is a 1:500 model of the 500-Ton gun boat proposed to the Russian government by William Winans in 1861 (see my web page: http://home.att.net/~karen.crisafulli/CigarBoats.html). The model is missing the rudders and the propeller assembly becasue these would be too small to print. My plan would be to add these afterward from other materials. The gun emplacements are empty and intended to be populated by two copies of the separate Gun Boat Gun parts. The small size of the model - 6 inches long by about 1/2 inch wide - might present some difficulaties in printing, especially the deck around the gun emplacements.
