There is a post some where, on the site , though I can't recall where, that deals with your question.

As far as I know The longer strakes are on the inside (not the way you have it). (not guaranteed). (so don't start glueing yet).

Keep searching and never give up!

Looks nice, Regards Brettos.

That's the way hyper701,

All hulls I have seen are like that.
