@dora

How about the S.55A? Brazilian Naval Aviation had six units. I have found two photos only (and a few drawings but it doesn't count :) )

 

Cheers, Moggy

Ok!

they are in an Aviakuleksia book on the S.55

The drawings (made by a knowledgeable Brazilian) show the camo & markings plus a good idea about what the Brazilian Navy's S.55 looked like

 

Give me your email address and I will send you the material (via Firefox Send)

 

Cheers, Moggy

@doraInteresting if the Romanian WWII S.55 will be also available? Were they S.55A, BTW?

Yes, it was S.55A.
Romania labeling will be included when 55A is released.

OK, so I will wait for it! Thank you for this info.

Currently I am constructing SM 55X by Italian Delta 2 (short run) in colours  from Spanish Civil War (the thread is in Floatplanes II GB) - but I started to think that there are really big differences between variants of SM 55 and maybe on my shelves should be room for two SM 55? ;)

I hope Dora won't  disappoint and make us who want the X variant, to find and build the lousy Delta 2 kit. 😪

 

As there are big differences in the engines, the float sizes and the cockpit shape, which is also enclosed.

I thought it was the Delta 2 kit that I had, but it certainly isn't resin.  I might wish it was, it is very hard polystyrene.. difficult to work.  Perhaps just Delta?  It might be available, with a little persuasion...

My bad Graham. Its plastic, but very difficult to build.....

It is an interesting short run kit to fight with. I am right now doing it:
