1930 Chris Craft Mahogany Runabout by mtdoramike

Recommended Posts

OK, I know, I know, I said in the past that I don't like building the same model twice, but I never said never, so here we go with another 1930 Chris Craft mahogany runabouts. Now, if I have my arm twisted behind my back to build a second model, my arm wouldn't have to be twisted nearly as much to build another 1930, this is one of if not my favorite Chris Craft runabout. I had been offered this kit a few months ago and it had been nagging at me, I could hear it in my sleep, saying (build me, build m mikie, you know you want to, just go with the feeling), which I finally did. I swear I could see that box dancing in my rear view mirror all the way home.

🤣 I'm glad I wasn't on the road when you were watching the box dancing in the rear view mirror!


I'm already in the front row, Mike!

I moved this to the proper area for it and added the tag for Chris Craft.  :Could you add a tag with the name of the kit manufacturer?
