Are there large size "mahogany type" boat kits

Hi guy's,

I'm not a boat modeler but for some reason lately I've been thinking a large 5'-6' model of those old mahogany Chris Craft style pleasure cruiser boats would be really cool. Are there kits or plans for such a model? Like I said I know next to nothing about boats but I am a long time, experienced modeler. Something like the boat pictured below.

Thank's for any help guy's,

John

Yes, of course.

I would probably steer you towards Dumas boats (or the thread titled WOODIES at the top of this forum) but the sky's the limit. Which one in particular suits your fancy?


EDIT: 5 or 6 FEET? No kits that I know of but plans can be enlarged. Whoa.

Many years ago a company called S&G Craft had a 1/4 scale model of a Century runabout - the model was 52" long, with a weight of 30-35 lbs.

There's a company called PDK LLC that has some cad plans for various boats. Their 1/4 scale Gentlemans Ruanbout is in the size range you want - 65.9" long. They also list a 1/4 scale 21' Chris Craft Cobra at 61.3" long.

Before jumping into a 1:4 scale model, think about how you'll make the chromed metal fittings.

Also, powering such a beast is not a trivial task...

A Big one ~

70" Chris Craft Double Cockpit RC BOAT frames CNC kit Dumas wood zenoah

A brand new 70" Chris Craft wood boat FRAME kit. CNC cut with precision accuracy. Furniture grade birch makes the frames strong but light.
1/2 " marine grade plywood gives the keel extra support. Frames are made of 1/4" furniture grade birch.
Included:
-CNC Cut marine grade keel
-CNC Cut birch frame

Big enough for a zenoah gasoline engine or a large electric engine.

You will have to provide the side and bottom sheeting, power source, and finishing details. Only the CNC cut frames and keel are included. Engine is NOT included. Pieces come as flat pack and you will have to assemble. Parts are precut. "

Plenty of plans of Svensons.

The Flyer was built large by PunyV, in Norway, but kids got busier than the model got time.

Hey Guys, that is my add on eBay. PM me if you'd like the frame kit. All the frames are cnc cut and you just have to add sticks and sheet to get a complete hull. Let me know if you have any questions. I'd prefer to sell to you directly rather than go through eBay because you know they take a huge cut 919-817-2795 thanks!
