      Since mid 2008 I'm busy with building the RIVA Aquarama of Amati. It is an Itallian wooden speedboat with 2 engines from the beginning of the 1970's. As you can see, I have allmost finished with the first planking, only need to finish the back and need to sand the whole hull. When first planking is finished , I can start with the second. I 'm not adding any extra detail as the kit is already very good and I'm concentrating on getting the basic skills, as this is my first model. I have installed 2 electric motor + speedcontrol + servo + receiver to make it Radio Controlled. I have added 3 lights in the front (not standard). I'm sure the original boat must have some lighting at the back and maybe even on the side but I can't find any detail. Does anybody have an idea? Any advise is more than welcome.
