Here's a model that I thought I'd never get to build until recently. An older release from a different manufacturer (name escapes me) was the only game in town, but that was old technology, expensive, and hard to build.
As soon as I got it, I started it... everything else was placed on hold.
any way, here's my progress on the recently released Savoia-Marchetti S.55, which I plan to build as the one in the box art.
The pantoons/hulls went together quite effortlessly.
the cockpit was simple, but the PE control levers were a pain!
My main complaint, is that the instructions are printed very small, at times vague, and plain wrong in several steps.
The quality, however, is very good, but some of the pieces are very delicate.
Regardless, I'm really enjoying it.
thanks for looking.
