Picked up an old Model Shipways Gjoa kit.  The hull is not the usual basswood or mahogany I have seen in other MSW kits.  It is a fairly hard light brown with dark brown flecks in it.  Straight, coarse grain.  I thought it might be pine but haven't seen any with the brown flecks before.  Any ideas?

Yes it looks like Pine to me, however there are quite a few different types of pine, and without a clear image of the grain and pore structure it is difficult to tell which one, there is a website, the name eludes me right at the moment where there are images of the structure of different woods that you could match to find out exactly which species of Pine if in fact it is pine.
