Max, thanks or jogging my memory. I remember seeing that aircraft while researching one very similar which I had forgotten about until now.

The Savoia-Marchetti S.55!

I honestly I don't know how I forgot her. Very important aircraft. If this hasn't already been made somewhere, I'll have lost all faith in humanity.

We have it already!! :D

Cheers!

It looks like something from "Crimson Skies":D

Heh heh heh heh. I love that game. It's too bad you have to have an old ass computer to play it. I remember the first time I played it; any hope of me being normal went out the window...

Well... IMHO, being "normal" in the true, classical meaning of the word, is nowadays "not normal"...  Impossible to be "normal"... I prefer having fun...

Hahaha. Normal was the only word I could think of to describe people who think airplanes run off magic.

One Savoia-Marchetti S.55 is preserved here in Brazil, in a museum. It is named Jahu, and is painted red.

I love that gorgueous atypical plane painted in any colour.  :-*
Another weird seaplane that became famous in that period, painted in red, is the Sikorsky S-38. Used for exploration of several big rivers and for passengers also.




Although, as you can see, she looks great also in other schemes:




This is for the kit, which BTW, is one of the most expensive plastic kits only available through ebay or similar (together with the one for Savoia S-55X)
But I thought the drawings could be useful for a modder to "assemble" a mod.  ;D

É muito lindo.

Yes. Was that restoration completed in the last two years? I remember when I originally read the Wikipedia article it mentioned that none survived(it has since been updated). After some brief scouring of the Internet I came across two photos of Jahu, but at the time the aircraft was, If I recall, still waiting for final assembly and the engines/pylon had not yet been installed.

Nice thread and idea. I am too a fan of this period.

I did not see anyone mentioning the beautiful Hawker biplanes, both two seaters and single seaters,

Hart (and the similar Hind):


An the hottest looking biplane fighter imho, the Fury and its naval variant, the Nimrod seen here as a restored example:


Edit: I forgot, the Hart is already done, and I think I have also seen a Fury at some point, am I right?
