Dumas 1954 Chris-Craft Commander Express Cruiser Kit #1244

Has anyone built the Dumas 1954 Chris-Craft Commander Express Cruiser? I'd appreciate some building log pics/tips especially concerning motor install; geared, as the plans say using Dumas hardware, or direct drive using a third party set-up? I'mm not looking for 'scale' performance so much as wanting to see the model get up on step, hopefully without using 100% of power all the time.

Any help and/or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Bob
