    As I said in an earlier post I want to try plywood for a keep and framing. I think 3/8 is the depth of the material I want, you RC folks use sturdier material that I use, so any suggestions on what to look for and please be specific, unfamiliar with plywood jargon. Thanks

    Craft Plywood 3/8 x 6 x 12 (3)
    This is a Package of 3 Micro-Cut Baltic Birch Craft Plywood Sheets (3/8") by Midwest Products Company.

    Looking for advise, I usually use balsa for the keel and frame. I want to try plywood. Size, cutting, gluing, etc come to mind. Thoughts appreciated.

    I think you misunderstood what I intended. There are several RD "clubs" here, people with a common interest. Not everyone does RC, therefore I was attempting to group with people who just build boats.

    Just curious, would the material you use work for smaller models? My hulls are usually 10" long and 4" wide. Frames can be a challenge with balsa.

    I've ask before, but I'll ask again. As boat builders, kit or scratch build, we share a common bond. EX's share there hobby, so why not boat builders. I would like a place to share ideas, what did and didn't work, material resources, access to plans and just a place to talk about our hobby. The email for this is staticmodelboatbuilders@gmail.com

    No I haven't done any kit builds. As a kid I built model cars from kits.
