I had a Maisto 1/24 shovel head die cast engine laying around so I raided the parts box and came up with this

RePurposed Chris*Craft

Last winter I got these two 1/56 scale Revell 42 ft. Chris*Craft Flying Bridge cabin cruisers, one was an old built glue bomb and the other kit is complete and mint. I'm going to call it repurposed instead of scratch built or fabricated.

Took the built boat apart, cut the hull down so it would now be a 14' aluminum fishing boat in 1/25 scale

Right now it's been taken apart for paint and detailing,
