Amati’s 1954 Ferrari Hydroplane is a real head turner combining beauty, speed and ease of construction. Laser cut wooden bulkheads and birch plywood decking are over planked with individual mahogany strips for a smooth finish. fins, motor cover and seats are made of strong yet flexible polystyrene.
Running surfaces are reinforced with steel plating. Numerous molded resin parts replicate the exhaust and ventilation systems, rudder assembly, propeller and other internal details.
Cockpit and dash are fully detailed with all the instrumentation of the original, authentically replicated in photo-etched stainless steel. the stainless steel steering wheel is laminated with laser cut wood. For absolute authenticity, all dials are framed in steel, and latches are complete with steel springs.
Clear plastic windshield, rope for insulating the exhaust tubes, and decals are also included. Three sheets of plans and 24 pages of illustrated assembly instructions are supplemented by eight pages of easy-to-follow text.
