1/19 B11M Sterling Chris Craft 63 Foot Motor Yacht - With B-11F Fittings Set - 40 Inch Long For R/C or Static Display
Wood and Metal Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Very rare. This is the flagship of Sterling's famous wooden yacht and cruiser line. Very large and highly detailed wooden model measures 40 inches long when assembled. Includes the optional rare and desirable B11-F metal fittings set. In the 1960s Sterling produced a line of famous and now legendary wooden Chris Craft Yacht kits. They were known for their scale fidelity, excellent design, strength and quality materials including mahogany woods as used in the actual boats. This is the largest one of the series - the 'Holy Grail' of the line - the 63' Motor Yacht. Specifically designed for gas or electric radio control or for a wonderfully detailed static model. Includes full size plans, instructions, drawings and photos of the full interior (if you wish to scratch build it), die-cut balsa and hardwood with inter-notched and self-locking construction, numerous die-cut African Mahogany sheets including cabin sides, windshields, aft cabin bulkhead, rear catwalk, transom and more, die-cut Gabon Mahogany decks and side catwalks, poplar motor mounts, decals and flags, reed molding, plastic for cabin windows, Venetian blind material, metal oval and round portholes, aluminum deck hatches, material for canvas skirt, marine hardware and more. This kit has never been started. The small hardware parts that Sterling sealed are still in the factory sealed clear bags. The parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete. Almost all parts are still in the wood die cut sheets. Plans and instructions are excellent but have the expected paper yellow aging. The fittings set B11-F is in the original Sterling Box and has never been used and is inventoried complete.
