Deluxe Commuter Boat Kit Set
Chris-Craft Commuter Boat Captures the Style and Elegance of the Roaring 20's
The 1929 thirty-eight-foot Chris-Craft Commuter Boat is the essence of style and class. This model positively drips with mahogany and epitomizes this classic era of American wooden boat building. The craftsman at Chris-Craft out did themselves when they created this beauty and now the model masters at Dumas are offering this little slice of heaven in 1/12 scale kit form.
This boat is a tribute to planking. The hull, the deck, floors, and parts of the cabin are all planked, so this one is a dream come true for the serious wooden model boat enthusiast. Loaded with quality features and real wood as far as the eye can see, there is no expanded PVC used in this model. What is used is a combination of birch and poplar plywood, bass and balsa strip and a whole lot of mahogany. The hull construction is die-cut birch and poplar ply over poplar ply laser-cut frames. The cabin is a series of individual laser-cut mahogany parts assembled over a full size plan. The details are immense, with some structures assembled like a model within a model (the windshields, for example).
