rvchima Posted December 31, 2013 Share #1 Posted December 31, 2013 (edited) And Now for Something Completely Different - Arno XI Ferrari Hydroplane, 1:8 scale, by Amati I now have three tall ship models in my house, a Spanish Galleon built by my grandfather in 1933, a MS Flying Fish that I built in 1969, and my recently-completed US Brig Syren. One can only have so many big plexiglass cases in one's house before one's wife starts to object, so for my next build I decided on something easier to dust, an Arno Ferrari hydroplane. Besides, with a glossy red cowling, polished mahogany planking, and chrome exhaust, wheel, and rudder, who can complain? I bought the kit from Cornwall Model Boats in the UK. Even with shipping to the US their price was significantly cheaper than anyone else. I ordered the kit on a Sunday and had it in my hands the following Friday. I knew that I wouldn't be able to start on it until after the holidays, so I gave it to my wife to give to me for Christmas. She didn't object. There's not much information about this kit on line, so I'll start my build log with What's in the Box Edited April 7, 2014 by rvchima yvesvidal and lb0190 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
