    Thanks again David. Been grinding away at hull openings. Done except for what gets photo etch, which I'll do later after the hull pieces are joined. A clear plastic ruler comes in very handy.

      Finished. I did make a mistake, cut the linkage opening on the wrong side. Patched it up like it didn't happen. Won't bee seen anyway. After filing all the openings, used the backside of an Exacto knife to clean the edges of the openings. This helped get rid of the annoying fuzzies. I'll probably add some additional holes on the centerline at the lowest point of the hull bottom to facilitate draining the water after a run.

        Naw. The scale flood-drain holes are enough. Don't Swiss-Cheese this thing, Ken!
