It's a 1/32 scale model of the coastal steamer Kyle Rhea (built in 1917). As Dirk says, if you get a hull, you've got to do something with it! He's put additional structural members inside the moulded fibreglass hull both as support and to straighten the sides. Building is going ahead fast but it is going to weigh quite a bit if it gets lowered to the water line instead of running in ballast only. There's lots of room to add detail so it will be interesting to see it in final form.
