Up for sale is an assembled like new Hydroplane Model, as described below. It was only displayed in my office/not played with and is in excellent condition.
See the awesome detailed red Ferrari seat, with detailed cockpit and dash. Also has the Ferrari logo as seen on side of model. The number 50 is on both sides. Detailed rudder shaft and prop. Minor display wear on some of the metal parts, which probably just needs polishing.
No stand was available when I received as a gift. Very easy to display on your own stand. As pictured on side next to cockpit is says Nandodell' Orto.
