Macchi M.5, the most beautiful derivative of the Curtiss flying boat. The M.5 was extensively used by the Italians and their allies in the Adriatic, this model depicts the machine of Ensign C H Hamman, Porto Corsini Naval Air Station. Hamman received a Medal of Honor flying this plane on a bombing mission to Pola.

 

Built from scratch in 1/72, with propeller hub and wind screen being PE from the spares box:

(apologies for the tape; the glue on the base has not had time to dry)

Markings are Italian, since the US naval station in Porto Corsini was formally under Italian command. Some pictures from the station here:

DHC 6 Twin Otter -Trans Maldivian Airways. 8Q-TMA. Revell/Matchbox kit straight OOB apart from adjusting wing dihedral and adding additional float struts and steps. And an extra window in the passenger door. Painted with Citadel Ceramite White glossed up with Klear. Red is also a Citadel product - Mephiston Red. Black is Revell Aquacolor Gloss Black. Transfers from 26 Decals. 

 

I built this one as we flew in iton our holiday in the Maldives, so had actual photos of the plane to use as a reference. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Just made it after dropping her. It's the Pegasus 1/72 Macchi M5 seaplane fighter circa 1918. Typical short run that required replacing the main wing struts as they appeared too short but worth the effort.
