    I started building this auxiliary ketch when I was 13, see photo. It is scratch built from balsa using the two shelf principle, finished with two or more layers of doped tissue to give the skin more strength. Originally it was steered with the help of a simple Braine gear but over the years I have updated various features and it now has radio control. I will post details of the construction and adaptations in due course.
