CHRIST CRAFT BARREL BACK





In 1939, Chris-Craft designed a new hull called the barrel back.  The previous models' lines of modest, slab-sided, and flat-decked utilities are replaced by the streamlined barrel backs.  Radical tumblehome and torpedo bows made the barrel backs the  most  collectable boats of all times.  This barrel back model accurately represents one of the most highly desirable of the famed Chris-Crafts.  It
features:  

- 1:8 scale.


-
Plank-on-frame construction (very important).  

-
Heartwood Honduras Mahogany.  This best mahogany type is used by real boat builders.

-
Deck is made of real individual thin strips of  planks, not a large piece of wood with faked lines, NOT good looking vinyl on cheap wood below the surface. 

- Precisely duplicates the real boat's elegantly curved hull and wealth of detailing.

-
Realistic gauges, switches...
