    You have a better chance of getting the question right if you read the full sentence. I missed the word model leading me to pick internal combustion as my answer. Must learn to spell and read before answering.

    A new update on this boat.
    After some thought decided to make a new boat out of the starter. The pictures you now see are the finale result.
    I liked the basic look of the hull but it was out of line. The first start was to brake the transom and reset it in line. Cleaned off the decking and built the sides. The pilot house and superstructure were remade in styrene .
    The final result turned out very well.
