    ***PLEASE NOTE- UNLESS STATED HERE, THIS ML BOATWORKS SCALE HYDROPLANE KITS ONLY INCLUDE THE INTERNAL PLYWOOD FRAMING. BASSWOOD STICKS AND PLYWOOD SHEETING ARE REQUIRED. THOSE REQUIREMENTS ARE LISTED BELOW***

    Chances are, you have heard about the quality of the ML Boatworks scale hydroplane kits. For the last few years, we have helped re-open the door for wood boat builders. These kits are made from top quality birch plywood and with the use of CAD, have excellent fitment. ML Boatworks Scale Hydroplane kits fit the general scale hydroplane rules for both NAMBA and IMPBA. We do modify "below the water line" ride surfaces to maximize hull efficiency and stability. Please see the NAMBA Master Hull Roster for all boats this kit makes. Paint and Sheeting Sheets for this kit are available at www.newtonmarine.com. Newton Marine plan sheets are to be considered the instruction manual for these kits, however all of our kits have a laser etched number system that helps the builder match up all the framework. The Newton plans will need to be rescaled to match the size of this hull. ML Boatworks works very close with Newton Marine, and we try to keep the frame numbering system close to their plan sheets. If you are an inexperienced builder, PLEASE contact ML Boatworks before ordering so we can guide you towards a kit that matches your experience level.

    Length: Most all 1/7th scale kits are between 45-55". Designed to run in a COUNTER-CLOCKWISE direction only. ML Boatworks scale kits FIT THE MASTER HULL ROSTER!
