Old paddle-wheel steam boat with display stand (visual benchy)

3D model description

I wanted to draw something after the bathtub boat which floats but still looks good on the desk. The idea of an old paddle-wheel steamer was buzzing in my head. You can see what came out of it. It took a few approaches but I am satisfied with the result so far. As a display stand I was inspired by the Benchy display stand, the idea was great.

I printed the Finale model completely in 90% of the original size. This was important to me so that I could check the material thickness. Personally, I like it a little bit smaller even a little better.

Wave stand for the #3DBenchy

Update: 04.02.2018
I added the multicolor version to it. The printing takes quite a long time because some colors overlap.

Even if my boats are not benchmarks (benchy), you can use them for quality control.

See what might come next

Support me :)
Although it is a lot of fun to draw boats and bring them to life, it takes a lot of time to research and draw. Especially the 1:1000 scale models are very time-consuming. So I wanted to see if there are any dear enthusiasts among you who appreciate my work and support me a little bit. Thank you for your help :)
