I really love this site. I have been to many model boat sites, but this is the best I have found. The layout and ease of use is great. I thoroughly enjoy looking at the other modeller's harbours and builds. If you are boat blind like I am, this is model boat porn to me.
I have two of these kits and will be starting one after Christmas... I will keep you posted. This is a Lindberg model of a 1959, 40' Chris Craft Sport Fisherman which is 30" long. I have two motors for her, but not sure if I will RC her or not. The finished boat should look like the photos or a bit better. These are plastic kits which I intend to apply mahogany skins and accents to make it more realistic.
This was just finished by my brother after a four year build. He used plans from the original sternwheeler from Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. We grew up there so there is a connection. She is seven feet long and the hull is built entirely from popsicle sticks. She is bound for the museum in Whitehorse as a static display.
