If the fibreglass shell is thick enough you can just pull it off after curing.
The two important things are a finesanded foam surface +
you got to leave the stern open.

The foam plug doesnt even get damaged.
Ive done that many times.

Some more cross sections cutted.
Now that the scale is 1:20, these sections are 140mm thick.
Im doing this with 80mm and 60mm Foam.

Mainsection is 400mm whide and 370mm high for now.
The stern will be 620mm high.

This is still not full height for the main section - not even up to the maindeck, as I want to be able to take this model apart right above the lower batterydeck for easier access.

As you can see on the mainsections glued together with doublesided selfadhesive tape, sanding is easy and fast with a very rough 24 grid, then 40 grid..
