Default Another hull material option

i designed and scratch built a fantasy sub boat using hobby plywood for skin and hobby wood for frame.
epoxy paint sealed the wood for water resistance. The resulting hull is very stiff and light.
Of course the shape is limited to the woods property to bend and ones imagination to use it favorably.
for bonding I used Tribond 3 wood glue.
my boat is on You Tube video. Search “Harpoon RC Submarine “.
