Sorry but I I have to use a translator
I've seen that UK MIKE does not write from 2012 I sent him an email, we now expect response.
I'm putting together a little photo of my build log 'Aquarama under construction.
I hope it's as beautiful as her.
See you soon.

Mike responded to my mail.
Unfortunately no photos and even video, however, is available for each approfondimnto on building.
I think his build log is very complete and detailed, leaving little to the imagination.
I hope you come back with other construction units.

Mike ha risposto alla mia mail.
Purtroppo non ha foto e neanche video perņ č disponibile per ogni approfondimnto sulla costruzione.
Credo che il suo build log sia davvero completo e dettagliato e lascia poco all'immaginazione.
Spero torni con altre costruzioni esemplari.

This work has been assembled with 100 sets a duration Hachette collection two years.In this work the kit Amati and has been designed exclusively for this collection,
last series 2012. After Amati is selling the updated kit as hachette files.
For convenience of shipping the strips and the main spar and other material were dissected to be contained in A4 format as the files.
Along with the kit he was attached an encyclopedia on Riva and assembly instructions step by step.
The final cost was about 1000 euro without engines and radio.
In Ebay are collected COMPLETE even at 100/150 euro, they could have made the last 3 series the best and most complete as Amati, the second almost as the last (windshield acetate resin dashboard), while the first series has the hull foam to be covered with mahogany strips.
I end and the beginning of this project from an Aquarama 1: 7 to 125 cm from motorize combustion 4 strokes with 2 OS FS 30/40 modified with water cooling.
I thank Mike for the beautiful build log.

Hello all,
I am a new member from Belgium.  40 years ago I built a lot of model boats which when I emigrated went to The Child Beale Park.  I returned to the boat scene a couple of years ago after aircraft building and flying.

I want to say a big thank you to UK Mike for his superb foto's and text about his Aquarama build.  I have just bought one from Cornwall Model Boats and I also bought the motorisation set which has been recently upgraded.  I am presently building a 46" Huntsman and the Riva is next.  I too was not too sure about the planking but Mike's text and foto's have allayed all my fears.

I will follow any posts about the Amati Riva with great interest.

Best wishes to all.
Andre
