The model plans show profile, deck, and hull sections. Model was for exhibition purposes power plant was fitted, but the hull construction was designed so that- one could be added if required. Notes and sketches were made during construction and are included.
The superstructure was made from balsa and 1/16 in. ply. For a working model, this can he made removable, fitting over the coamings around the deck opening. When painting the model all the paints were of a matt finish, and colour notes are shown on the plan as a guide. Several coats were applied, these being rubbed down with 'wet and dry' paper, until a good finish was obtained.
