I'll start with the wood pieces in the hull first and the running gear. The superstructure may wait until the fall. Varnishing I can do indoors, spraying gets done outdoors. On another note, what is the best way to cut the thin veneer? A scroll saw seems to be a poor choice.
K&Of motors are what got me into the model boats in the first place. The prices of some of them have gotten stupid expensive. A Mercury 100hp model will go for over a thousand dollars... Needless to say there aren't any in my collection.
