Product Description

This section contains various options to replace and upgrade the Sterling Models B15F fittings set, for their famous 42' Chris Craft Corvette cabin cruiser.

The original set contains almost 2 pounds of heavy white metal fittings. While many modelers have reproduced the Corvette wood model just from available plans, they are usually stuck when it comes to the fittings, which are hard to make and nearly impossible to buy. Here is the answer.

First, please take the time to download and read my single instruction set which covers all the fittings offered here- it's a PDF file which most any computer can open automatically. It also contains the full listing of all the offered parts:

Then note that I have broken the Sterling set up into several sub-kits. You may not need or want all of them! So I give you the option to not order what you don't need. Examples:
  • The mast and spars may be done better in wood than in brittle 3D printed plastic, so they are in a separate set. Templates for making your own from wood are included in the instruction set.
  • The steering wheel and life rings I offer are nice, but you may have other sources already... so they are offered separately.
  • You're welcome.
All of the fittings are offered in Shapeway's "Frosted Detail" plastic, which is the best they have for surface detail, but which still needs some special attention. Please see the details in my instructions at the link above. The plastic parts can be "chromed" with careful preparation and application of ALCLAD II chrome lacquer finish- it's really quite good, try it! Some available Alclad clears can be used to both provide a smoother base coat, as well as a protective top coat. See more at IPMS-USA.

SOME of the fittings will be offered in investment cast ("lost wax") brass castings, which can be procured in the "raw" as-cast finish, or pre-polished from Shapeways. After polishing, these fittings can be nickel plated at home; an instructive link is included in the instructions. 

Thanks for looking, and please use the "Contact Designer" button at the top of my shop's home page, if you have any questions.
