When the Chris-Craft Racing Hydroplane was first delivered, it was accompanied with a warning: FOR RACING ONLY. Chris-Craft knew that they had a thoroughbred on their hands. Equipped with a high-performance 121 horsepower KB engine shoehorned in, the three in-line carburetors protruded above the deck. The streamlined red fairing, designed to shield the carburetors, came to symbolize one of the fastest and most desirable Chris-Craft boats of the pre-war years.
This kit utilizes the popular expanded PVC and mahogany double planking method.
The 16ft hydroplane wooden model kit includes Step-by-Step instructions, flag, decal, chrome plated fittings and laser cut parts . Can be built for Radio Control or as a Static model.
