River boat - getting started ...WIP

I decided to knock up a small river boat, which could also be used as a little gunboat ...

Initially I made a cardboard base and basic superstructure, using some foamboard as a padding piece to raise the front deck
happy with the general layout, I increased the height of the hull by using a foamboard spacer and a cardboard base..
the next job was to add the sides. I cut these out of thin Daler mounting cardboard and bent as needed to fit, then stuck them on ...
 will leave this for the glue to set and plan out the top part of the superstructure plus how to make a small deck gun for the bow.
