mystery kit


Recommended Posts

Back in 1984 I visited Maine and purchased this kit while there. I was cleaning up the shop today and rediscovered this kit.

I thought it would be interesting to see how well you folk know your kits.

Who can identify it?

 

I do know what kit it is.

Harvey , yes you are correct, when I purchased this kit I had every intention of building it, so who knows I might just have to do it one of these days.

 

Tomorrow I will show the contents.

I was gonna suggest it was a chunk of 2X6 with instructions to carve away everything that didn't look like the Miss Molly, but I guess you've already put out the answer.
