Amati 1/8 Scale Arno X1 Ferrari Hydroplane Model Boat Kit

Please note: this kit requires paints and glue to be assembled. Not included. Available separately.

Arno X1 wooden boat model kit from Amati is not a traditional kit; it is a great replica of an exceptional hydroplane.

At the beginning of the Sixties Nando Dell’Orto, the famous motorboat racer, decided to put a 12 cylinder Ferrari engine on a 3 point hull prepared by the Cantieri Timossi shipyard. The hull was designed for inboard races (class 800 kgs). The engine was prepared by Rinaldo Tinarelli, who was known as “the wizard” , the structure of the hull was made of wooden joists covered with marine plywood. The engine fairing and the stern fin, both colored in Ferrari red and with Ferrari markings, became a symbol of power and aggressiveness.

  • All wooden laser cut structure
  • Double planking in plywood and mahogany
  • Already made fairing and stern fin
  • Steel dashboard and details
  • Resin exhaust system and rudder
