This is the seaplane piloted by Porco in the Studio Ghibli anime Porco Rosso, after Fio has fixed it. It is supposedly based on the designs of the real life SIAI S.12/S.13 reconnaissance fighter biplane and the Macchi m.33 seaplane. I was very pleased with the level of detail Fine Molds implemented into this kit; especially the cockpit interior! Sitting figures of Porco and Fio and a standing figure of Gina with base are included, but I did not have the correct paints for them at the time. I highly recommend this kit for fans of the movie – this is, at the time of writing, the best kit of the plane out there.
