This is an extremely well-built model of the unusual Chris-Craft Cobra speedboat built in the 1950s. Chris-Craft was traditionally a wooden boat builder, but this was their first attempt at fiberglass construction, with the gold finned engine cover on the stern deck. Mr. Brunkow’s model includes electric motors and receiver for running the model via radio control. His epoxy finish on the individually planked hull is virtually perfect. White calking lines are represented by thin strips of white plastic between each plank on the deck. The model is based on a kit by Dumas.
