This is a 52" twin hull RC catamaran . Built with 3mm plywood. I used fevicol as a glue. But latter switch to araldite. Below are some build logs..https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170603/39c4ab5f8a3dc1b4a1e4a3b6592adcba.jpg

@desachristopher,
 Clap
Must be far more difficult using ply as compared to balsa.
Hope you are going to:
1. Have a thin fibreglass and epoxy finish, plus spray painted colours
2. A roaring nitro engine to make this cat really fly
3. Set an Indian speed record for boats
Looking forward to completion...
Regards

Hope you have a good spray gun. Or that you are using spray cans.
This boat deserves better than a brush job...


Edit
And you never told us about that high powered nitro engine...
