I have built a number of 1:48 scale paddlers - Lincoln Castle, Wingfield Castle, Waverley 1899, Waverley 1947, Fair Maid 1915, Marmion, Lucy Ashton.

All were exactly to scale and have fully working feathering paddles. As per the prototypes the paddles are attached to a single shaft. It's not that difficult to build feathering wheels - I cut the frames (spiders) from an old aluminium body panel from a bus!

If you build them to scale then they sail like the real thing!
