Just a progress photo showing Joio's laminated hull de-plugged. I'm slowly working on the plugs to produce the mast/pot well and the mast/fin case. The lay up consisted of two layers of 135g/m2 and a top layer of 80g/m2. All three layers were applied at the same time using one mixed batch of West Resin which took 30ml per hull half. Once cured I applied two cts of just resin. Again, once washed and sanded I applied another 2cts of resin. At present her total weight is 328g or 11.5oz

Each balsa strip is roughly 8 x 3mm. I've cut 34 lengths from 3N 48" x 3" x 1/8 sheet. The remainder will but cut from 36" long sheet which can be purchased at my local model shop.
