    An interesting thread on this appearing over on Model Boat Mayhem:

    (I've put a new section in on the Forum - Hull Construction. It didn't seem to be covered anywhere else. David)


    And Nigel deserves a link of his own:

    Just mentioning a conversation with Nigel about the above thread:

    Nigel suggest that thin plywood (thinner the better) still has a lot to commend it when making a hull plug.(Good for plating lines etc.)

    And he thinks that I should have included a link to his Pioneer build also!:
