Owens 42' Flagship from Dumas

I love these old Dumas kits! This is Vintage Modeling at it's best. The 26" Owens Cruiser is of all balsa construction, and is designed for static display, but will be build for R/C with twin S-400 motors, lights and horn.

I don't know what year the kit came out, but the address on the Box dates back to the days in Milwauki, so you know it's old. The kit is laid out on 19, 2" X 12" balsa printwood sheets and a whole pile of 1/16" X 2" X 12" & 24" plane balsa sheets for shinningh the hull and decks. This is some primitive stuff. The plans are 1 sheet, about 18" X 30" and don't offer a great deal of information to actually build from. There are also 4 pages of instructions, or better stated, suggestions, for building the kit. This is going to be a fun and challenging build, so lets get started....
