    I picked this up from an Estate. Abused and neglected. Dumas kit #1240. I just received my replacement parts from Dumas this week. Time to make it "Rise and Shine" again.

    I keep looking for projects that need some love. I hate to see them not saved.

    Pressonregardless: Yeah, sometimes I'm a glutton for punishment ๐Ÿ˜” ... LOL
    But ... think of the modelling skills I'll acquire as I stumble through the repair! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I find sometimes it is easier to build new than to repair.
    I'm sure she will be beautiful when you are finished!

    Chum444: Facebook Marketplace, mostly. This Dumas boat was on eBay with a local seller, so I picked it up. The skiff was also an eBay find. The cargo container boat I was told about through the local RC Boat club I belong to. Just was diligent about watching for "project boats". I didn't want to tackle a full build until I built up some experience playing with broken stuff.

    You have had some sweep! Where were you able to find all these worthwhile projects?
