Default Scale ore boats

I am building a model of a great lakes ore boat based on the Arthur M. Anderson, (not exact), but my plan is to 3d print the bow and stern sections of the hull, and then to make the mid section out of plywood wrapped around ribs, I would like to know Wether or not this is the best way to do it. This is my first radio controlled project, and the shop will be powered by an electric DC motor.

Dumas makes a Great Lakes Freighter, might be worth checking out to get ideas.

That looks like a super easy hull to scratch build. I'd say either build it all out of wood, or 3D print the whole thing. I think the whole project will be easier if you stick with one construction type.
