Can't answer for the cardboard. I too used Luan. There
is something to be said for not having to cut out a
second set of mold stations if you should decide to
build another. I second the statement about the wire
for the stringers.Reinforcement of the cardboard
stations would be necessary in my opinion. Having said
that, I've been plodding along with my Classic 12 for
several months, couple of hours here, couple of hours
there... It's not about how soon I get it done. It's
more about something relaxing in the evenings. So an
extra bit of time added here or there wouldn't be an
issue in the over all scheme of things.
