Hi Colin
Welcome to the forum.
Are you a complete novice regarding RC? We will be able to help but it is useful if we know what level of detail you require. There is a section on this site All things RC which will help with the basics. I see you are located in Queensland, Australia so if any of your country men are reading they may be able to offer local help. If you have a local club that could be a starting point. Radio gear is used in all the modelling types so it doesn't need to be a model boat club.
I am attaching a picture of a friends Norcap so when you respond to this post I can get some detail pics of the details you require

Hi Colin
Merry Christmas to you too.
I will get some pics of Malcs model interior in the near future and post details online.
I usually cover my hulls in fibre cloth and resin but tissue paper and sanding sealer will also seal the hull.
More to follow
Dave
