ITC Savoia-Marchetti S-55 Flying Boat - Ringo Issue, 1/96, C548-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the box is only good. The first aircraft to fly across the Atlantic in formation! The S-55 was a unique aircraft with the passenger compartments in the floats and the cockpit in the wing; the two engines are mounted in tandem push/pull above the cockpit. The S-55 proved to be very reliable and airworthy, setting 14 world records for speed, altitude and distance with a payload. Three months before Lindbergh's solo Atlantic flight, and S-55 flew with stops from Italy to Rio and NY City. In 1933 Marshal Balbo led 25 S-55s to Chicago in about 48 hours. He then flew back without incident. This is from the original ITC molds. Ringo was in charge of cleaning out ITC inventory when ITC quit the model business.
