    ๐Ÿ“ Blog is now Closed!
    20 days ago by figtree7nts ( Admiral)

    Hi All,

    I'm sad to say this Blog is now Closed!

    There were too many issues the the model.

    And I had to send it back!

    And request a refund for the Kit!

    It would have been an awesome build.

    But with all the cracks that the model had.

    I felt it was not worth keeping the Kit!

    And after purchasing the kit.

    And discovering all the cracks I saw.

    I lost total interest in the Kit and the Build!

    Linberg 40" Chris Craft Sports Fisherman build.

    Now closed indefinitely!

    Cheers, Ed

    PS.

    See me at my other Blogs!

    Hi Martin,

    I was so looking forward to building that model!
    But, there were too many cracked pieces!

    And to think, I had ordered over $100.00 worth of paint!

    That's ok, Now I have paint for other Builds!

    My model finally arrived!

    This model is from the early 50's!
    It's in real good shape!

    The last owner kept in in very good conditions!
    The kit that is!

    I think the Kit has more value unbuilt!
    The kit makes for a very good collectors item!

    Makes me think?
    Hum, What if I don't build it!

    Someone would want to buy forward!
    Or is that sell it forward............
    Hum, decision decsion???


    Nah, Just joking!
    Of course I'm going to build it!

    I've been looking for this kit for a long time!
    I finally have one!

    Take my time building her!!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿšค

    Great News - I'm guessing it's a Marx kit based on the molded-in color plastic. The good news on that front is the tooling wasn't worn out yet. Later on more of the detail on small parts was lost and there would be a lot of plastic flash that had to be trimmed away. At any rate it's a nice kit and will be a good looking model. Like the others, am looking forward to your build. ๐Ÿ‘

    But, from what I've looked at.
    It's looking very good!

    Hot Dog you got her!! Man, Iโ€™ll bet youโ€™re relieved. I ordered an old Robbe Jackson off of EBay, price was right, it was in France. Once it was shipped, tracking stopped after it made it out of the country, didnโ€™t hear a thing until almost 3 weeks later, when it showed up. Alls well that ends well!!
    Watch a gonna put in her for power?

    Yay, My Christ Craft Sports Fisherman Model.

    Is on it's way!

    It was in a facility for about 1 month!

    The postal service is now moving it in my direction!

    I'm not sure when it will arrive.

    But, it is on it's way!

    And to think I almost put in a PayPal Claim!

    I actually got in contact with the Merchant.
    I purchased the model from!

    I think I made him Panic!
    As I threaten to put in a claim with PayPal!

    But, now my Package is on it's way to me!
    So, who's at fault the Postal Service!
    That's Who!

    Never the less, It's on it's way!

    Looks as if I'll have a boat to build.
    In the not to distant future!..........๐Ÿ‘

    Yes there is Rick,
    When PayPal emails you with the transaction confirmation they will also state the deadline for raising a complaint and requesting a refund. Usually few months so Ed is OK for the moment.
    He should check the confirmation mail before waiting tooooo long.
    I have a similar issue with my HMS Vanguard kit. Delivery was quoted as up to 11th August.

    Contact PayPal and see what they can do. In the interim if you have a US tracking number ask your mail carrier if they can help. UPS can track it too FedEx is another story in itself. Good luck- BTW Ebay (US) has a couple of more listed...

    Hi Ed,
    Nopeโ˜น๏ธ Unfortunately not.
    A curious story!
    A few days after ordering via Amazon/Paypal I received two messages from Amazon on the same day, within three hours.
    First said 'Payment received, item has been despatched' and quoted the delivery window.
    Second a few hours later said, 'Your payment has been refunded. Reason; Item not available.'
    Checked on Amazon and seller sites to see 'Currently unavailable.'
    When I ordered it was 'In stock' with delivery window quoted.
    Sent Email to seller - No answer๐Ÿ™„
    Checked Paypal account and read 'Your payment has been refunded before it was made.'
    It don't get much stranger than that do it!๐Ÿค”
    Tried a few other leads, all dead endsโ˜น๏ธ

    That's the first thing I thought of Doug, so contacted Royal Mail who inform me that they do not divulge such information, not a birthday either, that's St George's day, so as you say, it could be a scam, have checked all my PayPal payments, and the payments from my bank account and nothing is outstanding๐Ÿ™„

    Look what arrived today!
    My FlySky Wheel Controller!

    It's a pretty decent looking controller!
    All I did was put in some Double A Batteries!
    Turned it on!
    But, I need to order a Servo!
    I'm not sure if the Christ Craft model.
    Will use a standard servo.
    Or an S9 servo!

    My model is delayed!
    So, I can't tell which servo to purchase!

    That remind me!
    I need an ESC as well!

    But, will order in due time!

    For now, I'm off to my 3D printer Blog!

    You can probably use a full size servo if you mount it way over to one side. There isn't a lot of room between the underside of the aft deck and the hull.

    Ed,

    Regarding our USPS, it's funny I have had some things come much faster than expected! Only two times in the past two months have I received delay notices but they got here within 2 -3 days.

    It's our taxes at work Ed, I keep supporting those workers that face covid everyday. Do you use the email notice service? It's great and I get daily emails on my package status. I always have about 4 items either coming or going and I like to track them all.

    Good luck with your builds, they look like fun!

    I have a Spektrum two channel pistol grip with a fully waterproof receiver just for my Club 500 racer Ed, and I luv it, much easier to use on a fast boat that twin stick, turns are so much quicker to react with the wheel, beats the twin stick competitor every time๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi Pete,

    That's what I thought!
    When I purchased the pistol grip!
    It would be way easier to make turns!
    With a pistol grip than a 2 stick controller!

    So, I agree with you 100%!
    On the the pistol grip controller!

    Cheers, Ed

    Oh, I got it at a good bargain price also!

    I have a Spektrum DX4C that I use for my fast electrics, and my Robbe San Remo, which is fast-ish. Only way to go once you start hitting some speed. Itโ€™s a 4 channel transmitter, but Iโ€™ve only used it on 2 channel applications so far.

    Sounds like that pistol grip will work great on fast boats, sounds logical. I have only sailboats and slow tugs so I'll stick with my stick setup. ( don't know if my pea brain could keep up with two systems! ๐Ÿค•)

    But, I'm not sure what I will use!

    I'll wait to receive the Kit.
    And see then what motor to use!
