Built from solid balsa, PRESTO complies with the Footy model rules by fitting into the 12" x 6" box... on the diagonal, to give her just a bit more length.
The book is packed with step-by-step building photos, suppliers materials including radio control units, a reduced sized complete set of building plans (yes, you could scale-up) a lengthy intro to the evolution of the PRESTO design, as well some Flavio sketches for ideas of other boats.
Is the model considered a beginner project? No, not really.
