The George W. Washburn was launched by the Cornell Steamboat Company to move barges with cargo like stones, sand, and bricks on the Hudson River between Albany and New York City. During her early years, she was considered the fastest tug on the Hudson. Since she took on paying passengers, her appearance was kept up. It was said that a Cornell Steamboat could be noticed from great distances by its yellow and black smoke stacks. Sad to say, the George W. Washburn and Cornell Steamboat Company no longer exist.

Kit features laser-cut plank-on-frame construction. Length: 30 inches, Beam: 5-1/2 inches, Scale: 1/48. Dumas Kit #1260

Delightful Project for a First-Time Ship Builder

by MARK -

I built the Washburn in 2020, in about 5 months; my first RC project and my first plank-on-bulkhead kit. The experience was generally delightful, and the written instructions may be the best I ever saw. They told me planking the hull would be fast and fun, and it was. Skills and tools from other modeling applied. Dumas also gets a large upcheck for never skimping on material.
