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.

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.
