Each kit has all the parts you need to build a beautiful static display for your office or home. Or add (available from the maker) the controls, motor and NICad battery so that it can really "runabout" the pond.

This is a wood-boat kit of moderate complexity, and a beautiful piece of work under any circumstances. It's impossible, looking at it. not to think of "On Golden Pond".

Made In The United States. (Additional air shipping surcharges apply.)

Great kit, but not for beginners. Take your time and read and understand the instruction before picking up a tool.

I purchased this Chris Craft for my husbands birthday. He is busy going over the plans and setting up his work center. This is the first time I have bought him a craft so unique, thank you for having such nice craft projects. I am looking forward to purchasing more for him in the future.

I am just getting started on this project and I am having a blast working on it. Instructions are in depth and easy to follow. This is my first try at something like this and the kit is making it fun!
