The hull has been achieved by combining a keel plywood and the ordinate birch, between the spaces has been inserted in the balsa wood.
After the surface has been smoothed and plastered with filler body repair shop.
Later was performed coated by plating 0.5 mm.
Later before mounting the handrail, was built a underbridge with plywood end then covered with strips of 0.5mm.
Between a strip and the other is concerned inserted twine black to have the effect of caulking.

Then I built the gunwale, and on this I drew a line parallel to the outer surface to mark the line on which to place the bulwarks stanchions.
I run on the line of the holes and enter their bulwarks stanchions.
were later mounted the boards of the sides.
Then it was later realized the gunwale.
The hull filled and honed, was treated with a gray primer tamyia, and after with a primer fine tamiya white, to prepare the base for painting.
