Chris Craft Corvette Model Boat by Sterling Models

This auction is for a Sterling, B-I5M scale model Chris Craft 42 ft. Corvette boat built back in the 50's by an Ohio born WWII veteran with a passion for model building. The scale dimensions are 48 inches long with a 13 7/8" beam. The boat has been wired and outfitted for lights and a radio control unit and has occasionally been seen cruising on a southern Ohio lake (or swimming pool) over the years.

The radio control unit has since been removed, but the dual 3.6 volt Pittman/Panther motors (not in picture) and other hardware remain making it simple to upgrade it with some more modern RC technology. The craft itself is in very good condition featuring a mahogany deck. The original plans are also included. However, many of the metal parts have suffered corrosion and will need to be cleaned or repaired and repainted. (the price of being seaworthy!) The cabin section of the craft is removable to access the controls.

Email me with any questions and I will do my best to answer them. Local pick up is preferred, but I will ship to continental US only. This will take some careful packing and handling and may be shipped in two separate boxes if necessary. This item will ship DHL. Shipping cost includes insurance.

Thanks for looking and good luck!

Added a couple photos of the plans on 3-23.
