    Another older Lindbergh kit this time a early '50's Chris Craft Constellation. The older Lindbergh kits Are getting harder to find and some of the last ones the tooling was getting pretty worn.
    Nothing extreme or particularly exciting about the build, just a nice old Chris Craft.

    How much of what we see is part of the kit? And, what decor have you added?

    Most everything is from the kit except the railings on the cabin roof, the radio and antenna, flags and railing chain. A couple of other bits like the horns, spotlight, portholes and anchor/chain are from Harbor Models and Cornwall Boats.

    Thanks for the note. Try MACK RC Products too for deck fittings and the like. Shipping is a bit expensive but he has a lot of good RC stuff.

    Because it has an attachment to you Dad you should certainly build it. It's a nice kit to build, so take your time and enjoy it.
