    Hi All,

    Nice Macchi 72! Good to see an appreciation for one of the more interesting periods of avaiation. I'm off doing something that might have a wider interest than most models and is well in keeping with this time period. Taking a note from Nobi I'm not at liberty to reveal just yet keeping it a secret until it's ready.

    Best regards, Gil
  6. Still the absolute world's record holder for float planes. 440MPH in 1934 :shock: Powered by the Fiat AS.6. Two 12 cylinder AS,5s on a common crankcase nose to nose driving contra-ratating props :shock:

    YES! I've been wanting to build a model of that plane for years... That's gonna have to go next on the list after the Ouragan.
