Help!
Sterling Kris Kraf restore.

Hello, this is a basement find, mine, forgot I had it! I would like to restore it but can't find plans to build the cabin top, does anybody have the drawings to build original top available for copies? Thanks in advance, BO.

Wasn't that a beginner's kit that Sterling put out way back when?

Unless the readers of this forum happen to have drawings, you may be out of luck.

Not sure about beginners kit, back then, weren't we all beginners? Lol. I did see on an old post a picture of the box, a Sterling Kris Kraf. It is 19" long. I like the cruiser style cabin tops, I'll probably end up making something up anyway.

Lol, that's it, wish there was more, always looking, and in other peoples basements too! I did pass on to a fellow member on forum a Corvette recently. I do have a collection of '67 Fastback Mustang's ranging from Hot Wheels to rc mustangs 6" to 22" long, about 20 of the alltogether, but that's a different forum.
