    Last week we had a Mahdist War game where the paddle wheeler was used actively for the first time.

    The Zaphir was fairly devastating as it was pretty invulnerable & had awesome firepower.

    The solution? Build another; the Abbas (captured by  Mahdist forces):

    Not a hard thing to build as the two boats have the same hull configuration but differ slightly in superstructure & boilers (horizontal Vs vertical):

    Then the British will want another, and the Mahdists will feel the need to maintain naval equality, looks like the start of an arms race.

    I was going to say the same thing Victoria!

    They look really good, store bought or home made?

    Scratched by yours truly.

    I *do* want some Arab dhows but haven’t worked out how to build them.
