New build F1 28" From start to finish

Well after a disaster with a previous F1 that i built,it was time to start a fresh and build a new 1.
Here i will document as much as poss how i put 1 of my hulls together with photos from start to end.
Iv redesigned making a couple of changes,for a better handling,faster boat that should also perform in choppy waters aswell (i hope LOL)
so here goes,hope you like and enjoy

1st up is the parts iv already cut out and sanded:
Front & rear bulkheads 1/4" ply

Centre hull sections 3mm lite-ply

Sponsons inners,middle & outers 3mm lite-ply

Stringers 3mm lite-ply

All parts together

More to follow

And here we go again
2nd up is to test fit all parts together to make sure they all fit and line up,before marking out and glueing and laminating the parts.

Side view.

Front view.

Rear view.


Will post some more shortly,just gotta mark everything before glueing.
