1/25 Scale Miss Budweiser Race Boat Model Kit


miss budweiser


An AMT Miss Budweiser Hydroplane / race Boat.

This is a large kit, 1/25 scale, and is around a foot long. My kit came with stickers for the graphics on the deck, but I believe some of these kits had actual water slide decals. An additional decal sheet has all the smaller markings. (these can be seen below where I scanned them).

Maybe they switched to stickers on the hull-deck, because of issues with decal printing? They would have been quite large sheets.

This is one of those kits that if it was packaged correctly, with the right box art, would sell like crazy to me. And it's on my wish reissue list.

Although not this kit, I have built two Budweiser race boats.

Here above is a deck sticker. Note that this is as
long as the kit, about 1-foot long.

This decal sheet is smaller, and has the markings and sponsorships.



The above picture, and a lot more,
can be seen online here.

  • A Century of Gold Cup Racing - Celebrates 100 years of racing for the Gold Cup - The Crown Jewel of Hydroplane Racing. Fred Farley, the Official APBA Hydro-Prop Unlimited Historian, and Ron Harsin, have written this excellent account of the history of the Gold Cup which had its start in 1904. In those early days, the boats ran at the Blistering Speed of 24 mph. Today's Unlimited Hydroplanes - The Thunderboats - set the Water on Fire at over 200 mph! These pages contain over one hundred black & white photographs, many of which have never been published. It is also the first known record of the races to have all the drivers' and owners' name correctly listed for each race.
  • Prop Riders: 60 Years of Racing Hydroplanes - The hot rod muscle cars of boat racing-hydroplanes powered by V-8 engines from Chevy, Chrysler, Ford, BMW, and Alfa-Romeo-are explained in detail in this book. Providing information on hull development, power train technology, drivers, safety measures, racecourse design, and the growing budweiser hobby of restoring vintage hydroplanes, this fully illustrated volume explores these specialized boats that skim atop the water balanced delicately on the propeller and three small parts of the hull. Included in the appendix is a list of postwar racing record holders, along with the names of their boats and the types of engine used. This examination of sleek, brightly painted hydroplanes appeals to the casual and dedicated enthusiast, boat racing fans, hot-rodders, and vintage boat hobbyists.
