Oh, There’s Gonna Be An Ebay War For This Century Model!
It popped up yesterday and within seconds had a bid on it. And we predict more. This little model has it all. Prerestoric Condition, a cool name. Even a PA hailing port. Mmm do we know anyone in PA that likes Centuries? This little sucker rocks my old boat model love. Is there such a thing as a prerestoric Model?
CLICK HERE FOR THE MODEL ON EBAY
I refuse to comment on this comment. “…that looks like the famed Chris Craft Thayer IV from the movie On Golden Pond…”
Let the bidding begin!
I think it’s turbine powered. The sellers description says Chris craft. But the boat has a century sticker on it. Yea it looks exactly like the On Golden Pond boat. Only its missing the ladder on the transom maybe Pat Curtin would know if it was in the movie. and would that hull number be. l U ?? Cause its less than a foot long. It has some great patina
Well at least from yesterday we know where to get that wheel restored. Now for windshield brackets, step pads, vent covers, rudder, bow light, flag poles, correct batteries, mini extinguisher……….
Does it come with tiny fenders or tiny bumpers ???
Paint some pencil erasure tips white and hang with fishing braid?
Merry Christmas from Bob Matson
My monkey wants it for Christmas.
hey, this Berkerly Sea Bird is only $12
no cleats, no windshield, no seats, no bumpers
This model started out as a Century Resorter model made by Sterling models of Philadelphia, Pa. the model is around 12″ They also made a 12″ Seamaid, and the more common 27″ Seamaid. All 3 were based on boats from around 1952.
Here is a photo of a Resorter model that I bought on EBAY a about 15 years ago.
A photo of a 12″ Sterling Seamaid.
A photo of a 27″ Sterling Seamaid.
An original 27″ Sterling Seamaid box from the 1950s. the model was re-released in the 1980s. the boat photo was colorized on those boxes.
I just ran down to my office and snapped a few photos of my 12″ Seamaid & Resorter models.
Other models and boxes.
