Lindberg Chris Craft 40' Sport Fisherman

Vintage model boat...very LARGE!!!

Lindberg Chris Craft 40' Sport Fisherman

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-mode.../200845938919?

"Super rare HUGE boat model!!!
My family has had this since it was new in 1965. The box is in great (not perfect) shape. There are a few small issues with the box and a few staples in the end (no idea why?) and no tape anywhere on the box. Model is as it was when opened. Nothing is missing and no assembly was started on anything!! Electric motor is still there and still in its plastic wrap. No damage to the model or any of its parts. Comes with the original tube of glue that came with it, original decals and instruction book."


Current bid:

US $0.99 ( BIN: $500.00 )

A kit that nice needs to wind up in the hands of a skilled builder.

At 33 feet, a 1:1 model would be a manageable size !

Perhaps the Are plans or drawings ..

I'll look !

It was rumored.... some time ago, that we might see it in October. Don't hold your breath when it comes to Lindberg. BTW , My LHS owner says.....He hears from his distributors saying, "Linderberg aint doing so well"

Some of these old kits bring back memories to me, back in the days when I used to browse through the local hobby shops to see what they had.

Never bought much, but grazing over the boxes was entertainment in itself---.
