    The strip planking will take up most of your building time. Just do one plank at a time on either side so the frame doesn't get skewed or twisted. Use 1/8" x 1/2" balsa wood. Once it is all planked, epoxy the inside of the hull, let it try, then sand the outside smooth. I have built several.

    I am new to this group. I am so glad to see a Lumba Lumba model being restored. I received a partial built model over 30 years ago. I was painted with model paint. I scraped off the paint not knowing what the hell I was doing. My plan was to fiberglass it and I put it to the side until the weather got warmer. Years..decades later, I found it still in storage but in bad shape. I'm glad to see the photos of before and after as it is my plan to switch it over to twin drive. Maybe I can start back on it this winter.

    ๐Ÿ“ To crew or not?

    While some of my models came with crew, I find it difficult to find figures in 1/16 scale. I build RC USCG small boats. I have a 41' UTB and a 44' MLB in progress. I do needa crew for these.
