Taking a break from shrouds. Have been looking at Occres R/C tug ulises for next build.

 

 Will make as a static build, maybe r/c.

 

They state it has a fiberglass hull. Taking in the translation problems on foreign suppliers can someone advise if it is a thin cheap plastic or fiberglass.

 

Thanks John

John-

 

I built the OcCre Ulises Tug for R/C back in 2009 (she's in the Gallery).  She has a plank on bulkhead hull.  Of course there's every possibility that they've modified the kit but I can't seem to find a fiberglass version.

On the occre website, it is presented as a plank on frame construction.

Augie & Jan,

 

I thought I left dumb at home but picked up dumber. I had that confused with another rc build I was looking at, had looked at the occre site numerous times. Drank to much water :(

 

Thanks for the replies
