I AM BUILDING THE "FATHER GOOSE" LAUNCH AND HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CABIN TOP. WHY THE 1/64 PLY FOR THE MAIN HATCH? I ASSUME THIS IS THE ACCESS TO RUNNING HDWE, BATTERY PACK, SPEED CONTROL, AND IS NOT GLUED DOWN. THE TOP OF THE CABIN IS 1/32 SHEET BALSA. HOW DOES THIS MATCH THE HATCH. MY ASSEMBLED HATCH WANTS TO WARP A LITTLE BIT AND NOT LAY FLAT. I AM AFRAID PAINT WILL CAUSE FURTHER WARPING ON THIS VERY DELICATE PLY. SHOULD I PREFINISH THE CABIN SIDES BEFORE INSTALLING TO PREVENT MESSING UP THE WINDOW PLEXIGLAS? tHIS IS A VERY LIGHT BUILD AND WILL BE A BEAUTIFUL BOAT. DO YOU HAVE ANY PICTURES OF IT OR CONSTRUCTION PICS OR VIDEO OF THE FINISHED MODEL?

Unless you plan to attach wings, you might get a better response in the Scale Boats forum.

Eric, Yep, that's my "other" hobby. But, lets don't beat up on PJEFF too much, it could have been posted in Scale Boats too, but I've been a bit delinquent about checking in over there lately, so I'll have to take some of the blame for this one too.
