An enthusiast for motor boat racing, Achilles Castoldi decided to focus on setting top speed records in 1953. He commissioned a 800kg class three-pont hydroplane hull to be built by Cantieri Timossi. The hull was dubbed Arno XI. As for the engine, he turned o the new up and corners of the auto racing scene - Scuderia Ferrari. On the morning of October 15, 1953, Achille Castoldi succeeded in smashing the 800 kg class speed record with an average "flying kilometer" two way speed of 150.49 miles per hour. He followed up the performance on the follow day by setting another record of "24 nautical miles" event with an average speed of 102.34 miles per hour. Arno XI was restored in the early 1990s and was placed for auction at the Coys Festival Silverstone in 1997 that was not sold. However, Arno XI was eventually sold at the 2012 RM Auction in Monaco for $1.1 million dollars.On the morning of October 15, 1953, Achille Castoldi succeeded in smashing the 800kg class speed record with an average ?flying kilometer? two-way speed of 150.49 mph on this Ferrari hydroplane. Now you can recreate this stunning race by installing RC system for this model. Master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wood models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings and original plan. They are built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany. They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual ships. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. This is an amazing model of the Ferrari Hydroplane handcrafted from cedar and mahogany. The hull is encapsulated in one layer of fiberglass from both inside and outside for extra reinforcement and water proof. Under the painted red hood, there is plenty of space for installing RC system. There are hundreds of tiny construction nails vividly showed on the hull. The dashboard has two tones wood panel installed with realistic look stainless steel gauges. The cockpit has a hand stitched red leather seat, a big stainless steel steering wheel and copper pedals. Two large stainless steel exhausts are coming out from the V12 engine compartment one on each side. Shiny stainless steel ruder, prop shafts and propeller are uninstalled but included. The light wood trim around the boat completes the decoration of this gorgeous model. This model is secured on a removable large wood base for display when not racing.
