    My first model boat build for about 30 years. Mincio is all wood construction with balsa planked on frames and clad with mahogany planking. a simple boat to build and sail. Very small motor 280, which drives small two bladed prop. Kit comes with motor, shaft and prop and rudder and all deck fittings. I use a small pond so the size is ideal and looks good on the water, not swift but goes well. small rubber band drive between motor and prop shaft. I change the band on each sailing as I have experienced transmission failure mid pond on one occasion!

    Doug, In a way it is a mask, but is actually a self adhesive plastic used for car side advertising by printers. Had a terrible job fitting the windscreen, finished up creating an new cockpit surround and sticking screen with polyfilla and then adding the blue surround.
