Soviet-era River Rocket (Raketa) kits?
Posted by Greysteele on Monday, November 20, 2023 2:26 PM

Does anyone here know if there are any kits of the old "Raketa" hydrofoil boats used in the former Soviet Union to travel the rivers? They were sometimes referred to as "river rockets" and followed some fairly cool, futuristic designs. I've found a paper model but no real kits.

TB, did you really mean to post your email and mailing addresses on a forum the whole world can see?
