Product Details


The Macchi M.C. 72 was an experimental seaplane designed and built by the Italian aircraft company Macchi Aeronautica, the M.C. 72 was just one of the series built by Macchi. It was built in 1931 with the idea of competing for the final Schneider Trophy race, but due to engine problems, the M.C. 72 was unable to compete. Instead of halting development, Macchi continued work on the M.C. 72 and in 1933 and 1934, it set a world record speed for seaplanes which still stands to this day. Five M.C. 72s were built but only one survives, the aircraft that took the world record; it is on display at the Italian Air Force Museum.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
