FTFC19 - April Showers by FoamyDM, Savoia Marchetti S55X (Porco Rosso)


Building Fool-Flying Noob
For the FTFC19 April Showers Challenge I will submit one From Scratch build that is in my idea folder:
Savioa Marchetti, SM-55 depicted in Porco Rosso
This was a real plane. First as a military vehicle then turned into a commercial endeavor.
Project Ambitions: Design and build this plane, flying it, then make is watertight and Fly it in the rain.

There's so much to like about this design, twin boom tail, twin engine and twin hull!
If/When you get a working set of plans I might just have to try this one.

@rockyboy - Thanks!
In Porco Rosso, there were like a fleet. (briefly) I'll have to pull out the VHS and watch it again...
