three other kits included, plus the 14k gold chain used on the boat?

I found this add while looking at real CC boats, this guy has no idea what he's selling or what they are worth ..

This model has been oddly treated ~

ONLY $3000---. The seller must be a bit odd too, Tim.

I think you are right Karl !

In the same category as this subject was found are a few of LaBob's models, REASONABLY priced in comparison, this seller must not even have seen what well done models look like.

Kinda sad, Modelerman. Lindberg has been around since I was a kid, when the name was "Paul Lindberg"---.

Seeing that lathe, makes me feel a little more like a FOSSIL! As I have had one since the early 80's. I need to fab a travel screw, then it will be usable. But with my Shurline, I will probably never really use it. Charlie

The lathe is modeled after a Monarch 10EE.

It may have been the on/off switch for the electric motor in Ito type assembled model boats from Japan.
