Has anyone out there built the Mantua Bruma kit and ideally kept a build log?  I have just completed the Billings Nordkap (photo below) with the help of a lot of advice along the way.  As a follow -up project, I want to do another plank on frame kit to see whether the saying ' experience means not making the same mistakes twice' hold good.  About the size of the Nordkap and adaptable for radio control are the main requirements.  The Bruma fits the bill but any other suggestions would be welcomed.

Well, I decided to go for it and 5 months later Bruma has taken to the water.  Many thanks to those who provided build advice at various stages.  Anyone wanting to see the complete set of build photos will find it in my Bruma album.
Next project is a complete change of pace - or will be if it works.  I wanted to build a speed boat and stick with plank on frame.  The only choice I have found is the Billings Slo-mo-shun and the kit is on its way.  I would be interested to hear from anyone with experience of making this kit.
