    Long time back, I decided to take two of Athearn's boats, and bash a larger version. What was left over from that bash, sat around for all those years with "no place to go". I was looking for some parts and came across the "old remains"......this picture is the original bash, the next part is continued on page 2...:mrgreen:

    In the foreground is the stock classic Athearn boat. Behind, the Athearn boat, stretched to 42 feet, with a scratch built cabin. There's more detail work to be done, and finish paint. so here it is at this point.
