This is the Selway Fisher version of an old favourite - the Prospector type open canoe. The original Prospectors were originally designed in Canada and known as the "workhorse of the North".
They had to have a good carrying capacity for all of the Prospector's gear and they had to work well through white water and wilderness.
Construction uses 0.4 - 0.75mm aircraft modeling plywood and the tack and tape (stitch and tape) construction method. The plans give full-size plank shapes for the model. The planks are cut out of the thin plywood using scissors and held together with Sellotape before the seams are glued together using a PVA glue.
Details of the full-size Fisher Prospector canoe can be found on the Selway Fisher Design web site.
The model plans consist of one A1 sheet giving full-size shapes for the construction plus six A4 sheets giving a photo sequence and instructions for the model's construction and fit-out for a similar canoe model.
