I'm wondering if anyone has built a model of the Bering motor yacht "Mila"? Drawing MM2068 from my hobby store. There was a short article about it in Model Boats Mag Dec 2011. This will be my next project and will be a plank on frame, but I'm not in a hurry just yet to get it completed. Any help or advice gratefully recieved. Thanks for reading.

Nice boat. Can I offer a tip. If using balsa planking roll the strips on one side with a pencil or thinnish dowel and the wood will assume a curve which will help accomodate the planks to the curvature of the hull Other woods even plycan be treated like this but will require more pressure from something like a heavy dowel.Damping or using ammonia will help too. Good luck with the build.John👍😁
