Savoia-Marchetti S.55 - Dora Wings - 1/72


Recommended Posts

Hi all,
this Dora wings kit recreate the Savoia-Marchetti S.55, called "Santa Maria" which was flown by the italian aviator Francesco de Pinedo (February 16, 1890 – September 2, 1933), in 1927, with Carlo Del Prete and the engineer Vitale Zacchetti , from Elmas (Sardinia, Italy) to  Arizona.
 

I hope you enjoy it 😉

Very nice!

I love shapes of SM 55. I have one SM 55X from Spanish Civil War by Delta 2 on shelf and now I wait for SM 55A by Dora to do the second one in Romanian WW2 colours...

Great work ! Great presentation as well !!!

When I was a teenager I saw the last remaining airframe (Jahu) in a Brazilian museum and I fell in love with it.

What have you used for the water base?

 

 

Hi,

for the water base i made first a 0,5 cm or 0,2 inch layer of transparent resin (prochima E30) and next, to make the waves, woodland scenics "water waves"
