Details That Impress The King of Mississippi model features a four-level deck with authentic details. From the wooden steam propeller to a peek inside the cabin from the first deck opening, it captures the essence of the historic vessel. Metal railings grace each floor, and four black smoke stacks stand tall on the third and fourth decks. Mounted securely on a wooden base with a brass nameplate, it's not just history; it's a work of art demanding attention. This model isn't just for show; it's a journey back when steamboats ruled the Mississippi.
