Those inline sixes used in the Chris Crafts were made by Hercules in Ohio

Wonderful! I've never seen nicer boats in this scale (and I love the Olds too)!

This is the first boat , in mahoganyveneer and two Cadillac engines. The trailer with real wood inlays and the car built from a resinbody. I cut out the sides and replace it with mahoganywood. Some pictures of how it's made ............

Awesome work on that boat. The hull in the Hemi Hydro kit scales out to about 1/20th scale along with the trailer.

Where did you get the Ford wagon body?  Is it the Jimmy Flintstone casting?  If so, you've done a great job building it?

Not 100 % to take a 2 door coupeinterior to a 4 door stationwagon,but the details that fail cant be seen throu the windovs anyway. Or more like nobody havent seen it yet    :D
