This is my 1/10th scale MRP 'Italia' motor yacht that I purchased randomly from Feebay in September 2019 for $24.00 USD. Yep, $24.00. It's in good shape and came with Futaba servos and receiver, a tamiya MSC, brass prop and an old SAFT battery pack but is missing the fly bridge cowl. I have no childhood connection to this model and never wanted one of these at all. While these are very rare, the only reason I bought it was because it was dirt cheap and had a Tamiya Technipower motor resting nicely in the hull in what looks like mint condition that I wanted for my brushed motor collection or one of my vintage buggies. The motor alone is worth more than what I paid for the entire boat. The motor bracket was covering part of the label so I didn't know whether it was a Technipower or a Technigold until I removed it and it runs perfectly. I'm going to put in a standard 540 silver can and see if I can get this running so I can sell it to somebody who's looking for one. Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy.
