Great Start!
Are you using Balsa or Ply for the forms?

You model is looking quite good! What are the deminsions? Does this have a scale or are you just building from you own specifications?

Looking good!! This will help me as I've got the plans and Im ordering the wood tonight. Hope to start soon. We may have to start a Yoda's Ark Club. I noticed you went with a single shaft instead the twin setup on the plan. How did you manage that with the keel? The keels too small to drill a hole into it. Can you post a picture, I'd like to go with a single motor also.
