Chas. E. Ward



Built from Ward Engineering Co., Charleston, West VA drawings, this ship was to have been the first diesel-powered sternwheeler to eve fly the inland rivers.  Unfortunately, the ideal wasn't sold to a potential buyer. The basswood and brass model, however, makes an interesting little craft when afloat.  The ship model is propelled by her sternwheel which is driven by external pitmans.  The model responds well to commands from a 2-channel radio yet she makes a fantastic, static 1:48 scale model.  36" long.   $4,000
