I am building the yacht Krispie , buy I am diagonal planking with 0.5mm ply not with Rice Krispie cartons ,as per Vic Smeed,s article 1977 Model Boatsfor rigidity and strength.The question I have asked and have also been asked is.  Are there any photographs of the completed model,static or sailing? , as no-one appears to have seen any.It would be nice to use them as a comparison.
