Curtiss R3 C0 from the "Porco Rosso" movie
« on: April 15, 2014, 03:29:57 PM »
Hallo: as anticipated in the Dabohaze thread, here is the 1st part of the Miyazaki triptyque I decided to make after watching the Porco Rosso movie.

The Curtiss R3 C0 which was flown by the american pilot Donald Curtis who was called for help by the Mammaiuto pirates against the flying pig...


Some details taken during work:

Instrument panel (hand painted)


Engine


seat+belts and finihed Instrument panel


The interiors of the fuselage before closing it




Here are the pictures of the finished model:




























OK that's it...   :))

Thanks for watching

Antonio

What a super slick and stunning seaplane!

The open engine panel is a nice touch.
