Ken Willards Hydro Honey

Pulled off the net and enlarged to 34 inch wing span. All traditional construction, dope finish, lightspan covering on wings. Full house with a CD ROM for power by Phionex 10 controller. All up weight under 9 ounces with 2/1500 lite polly pack. 30 minutes flight time on pack. A little pitch sensitive but about 30 flights or so with about half of them off water including indoor pool.

I built this little beauty back in 1962. Powered with a TD010. Very short of cash I could only fly it free flight..After several great flights it caught a hat sucking thermal never to be seen again. I have down loaded a set of plans ,but no construction tips. I am not sure how to start the boat type fuselage?? Anybody got a build thread or some advise???
