@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...
