Yes it's a full width rear seat but without a backrest. I'll post the new photos in the next couple of days.

A special thank you to MACK RC, Harbor Models and my local hobby shop Empire Trains for all their help

Ultimate Enticement by Puddle-pirate Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 17 days ago
This is a 1984 re-issue of a Lindberg Chris Craft Sport fishermen purchased used on Ebay. Some of the parts where broken and some partially assembled. The model did come with 2 MACK RC motors and some fabricated wood parts, including a template for the aft deck. The interior was assembled from quarter scale doll house items except for the dinette. There are 4 underwater LED bulbs with a dedicated power supply. The running, interior and radar unit are powered by a separate systems from the hull electrics. The second Li-po battery is for backup and balast.

[Score: 8/10] 30"/1400g Masquerade Capable of 8mph and a runtime of 45mins Single Propellor (4 Blade 30mm) Direct Drive to a MFA 500 (4 Blade) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) 7Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Alleot 320A (5Amps) ESC - Comments: Masquerade is a Dean's Marine Oùlton Lady somewhat 'Americanized" (sorry) - Many of the deck fittings are plated with a Caswell brass plating kit. The lighting is all LED with the exception of the searchlight. The second deck was fabricated from doll house flooring as is the helm seat. More photos will follow.

Older Billings Models by Puddle-pirate Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
I recently purchased a Billings Sea King on Ebay. Not certain if I'm going to build it or not. Frankly my workshop doesn't have room for a scroll saw. This kit doesn't contain die-cut parts so a power scroll saw is a given. If I decide to sell it I'll post details. Happy New Year.
