Chris Craft Barrel Back
Does anyone know of a source of a pre-built model of the Chris Craft Barrelback speedboat ?? I have seen some out there for $1200, but I'm not THAT anxioius ! I just love the lines of these things and want one for my den. I know there are kits, but I don't trust myself to do a really professional job.....

Well, if it is just for the den, there are the non running "Riva Aquamara" models for a fourth of that price.
It seems to me that Kyosho offered an abs hull chris craft for a while, but I can't seem to find any references for it. A Dumas kit may be your only other best option. If you enjoy modeling at all, these kits are not to difficult to build up.

Or a first time scratch built Riva, here

You can do a good job. A friend of mine is working on one as his 2nd model. My model inspired him to start. The worst part was scratch building the trailer, I did that by eye. I added working lights, and replaced the vac-formed seats with foam and vinyl upholstery.
