1940 Chris-Craft Barrel Back Boat Kit

These are not your average kits--they are made by model enthusiasts for model enthusiasts, and true craftsmanship is evident in the results, which combine high-quality materials with clear instructions.

The vessel you see here is perhaps one of the most classic and iconic boats around.  Sleek, graceful, and instantly recognizable, the Torpedo Deck or Barrel Back hull style was introduced by Chris-Craft in 1940 and remains one of its most coveted designs.  This kit replicates the original in exacting detail, using a double-planked PVC and mahogany veneer hull, chrome fittings, preformed plastic seats, and running hardware, as well as flags, decals, and burgees.  At 1/8 scale, it measures 28 ½” L, with a 9 ½” beam.

Please note that for these kits we offer the model only, not the motor, which can be sourced directly from the manufacturer if desired.  The boat without a motor is fully complete in itself.
