    Designers please take note.....not nearly enough Golden Age subjects avaliable on the net, particularly as nicely executed as this one.

    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

    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.
