Within the MMI range they include Choupette, a chine ply panel open launch intended by designer Bernard retif to offer a simple to build model as a first steam hull, with plenty of room for the most common steam engines and boilers.
Please Note: These plans are printed to order and take approximately 7 days for us to obtain.

Difficulty Rating: One Star

One star means that the plan is an elementary design suitable for the beginner or first time plan builder.
