    Thetime it came out it was Nitro. If you want to race stay away from it. Poor quality wood and not designed for today's FE gear.

    She's a boat that I really like too. I intend to build an 1/8 scale model of it too one day.
    I'm interested in seeing how yours turns out.

    On the following link, there are some plans for the Miss Thriftaway Too, at the bottom of the page. They might help you get the shape & proportions right for the cowling. Also some construction notes from the original Dumas kit.
    There's also a few other boat plans on the page that might be of interest to you down the track a bit.
