Ferrari Razzo 1/48

Hi guys

Everybody knows the Ferrari Arno XI, right?
The famous 502 bhp speedboat that achieved a 242,7 kmph (150.2 mph) top speed in October 1953 on Lake Iseo.
A world speed record for an 800 kg boat that still today remains unbeatable.

What many people are not aware of is that afterwards Ferrari continued that project development
until they came up with the less well known Ferrari Razzo (rocket in italian).

Please find below the testimonial photos.


























































Thanks for watching!

From start to finished, this is by far the best combination of parts and imagination I have seen so far.  Absolutely marvelous Antonio!

So thats where my remote endes up? And here I was blaming the dog.....
That is seriously very cool and possibly the best use of an old remote ever. I love the ingenuity and originality of the design.  Your very clever
