    if you are searching for the original plan you can ask at this site "altomareblu" , I have made the model from some picture and few information before konwing him and remeber I had a conversation with Alessandro Vitale and if I remebar well they have many original plans by Sonny Levi and for sure they have many information.

    An update,
    I sent an email like pafurijaz suggest, and until now I don't have any kind of answer.
    I have been working in the cockpit, more properly in the seat, the photos that I could find on the internet I can see part of the seats, I started the seat three times and I'm not happy with the director and the results, how a simple thing can be so hard to draw !!

    I'm sorry, about, anyway this boat was lost, because after the crashes at High speed they stopped any buld, I think was builded only 3 and all for racing.
    Holy crap I found some picture on the older email.. I really don't know how I have these, but I didn't used these for design my 3d model I used the yellow render below.
    Update delete origianl scan.

    Thank you so much for sharing the images with me, it will help, I still haven't had much time to compare the images with my drawing.
    The original images I couldn't find, and the other images I also have the same.

    Finally I have some time to compare the drawings to mine design, I take a few lines from the original drawing to compare, I have not made any changes in my drawing yet, minimum adjustments, not bad for a design from some photos, I'm not far. The step is 34 centimeters because of the measures that I could find, 38 and 40 feet. I could find in my searches a few measures, beam, distance from the step until the stern and a few more.
    The wing needs to move a little back and a little wider, the deck a little down after the cockpit, the holes for the air vents need to be resized, small adjustments like I said, very happy with the result. One thing that I didn't know it's the frames for a boat that was built with fiber and carbon fiber, with frames giving some strength and rigidity to the hull. The yellow lines it's the new ones.
    What do you think?
    Thank you so much pafurijaz.

    I have been adjusting and correcting some of my lines (such as deck, hull, spray rails and starboard) in relation to the original design, some of them now make more sense after being straight, I haven't touched the cockpit yet it will be the next step.

    Yellow lines, study the cockpit height and shape in relation to the pilot's position, maybe it's too high

    I already started the cockpit but I have to do the seats first, so I decided to start the emblem / logo, I will need eight of at least two sizes in order to make the stickers. I already have the baselines done now, I will create a surface and put the corresponding color in each part of the emblem.
