Yeah i am going to fibreglass the foam after i get the right shape. I looked 
at it a little more today and i might change a few things, only took my the 
afternoon to make up the turret so if i don't like it i will make another 
one. I used 1/8 baltic birch double sided board to skin the upper section. 
The main hull is 3/8 ply, I reinforced the 1/8 skin with spray in foam, 
makes it alot more rigid and stronger. I was thinking about using fibreglass 
resin on the entire outside but i haven't decided if this is overkill or 
not. I am going to order a couple of the so called EVX motors from surplus 
center, see how bad the shipping is aswell.
