This Sterling models 1955 Chris Craft Corvette was inspired by the time period it was made. A time when it felt good to be an American and the dream of cruising on a yatch meant something more! These ships were hand made by craftsman with a passion for producing a product that showed pride, dedication, and style. This model has been modified to include many handmade, one-of-a-kind elements to represent the "true" artesian aspects of the real thing. Note the hardware, fixtures, lamps, stove, seats, fire extinguisher, anchor, etc etc etc have all been made by hand from scratch. My father, Bob Wittenkeller, spent years on this project and his attention to detail combined with his skill for making scale art have made this ship spectacular! I hope you enjoy it!!

WOW!

Awesome, I try to build my own accessories too. However, I use a smaller scale and that presents its own challenges.
