Macchi M.39 (resin kit) - NOIX48001

The ninth competition in the Schneider Trophy series was held in 1926 and was won by a Macchi M.39, flown by Mario De Bernardi. The trophy had been won by England in 1922 and by the United States in 1923 and 1925. The race was held in Norfolk, Virginia on November 11-13, 1926. There were three Macchi M.39s in the race flown by De Bernardi, Arturo Ferrarin and Adriano Bacula. The design was a masterpiece of aerodynamics and the M.39 would become the model for a series of seaplane racers, English (including Supermarine) as well as Italian. First impressions were not misleading, De Bernardi won the trophy with an average speed of about 246 mph (295 km/h) while Bacula came third with an average speed of more than 210 mph (335 km/h).

Resin kit with metal detail parts, decals and instructions in English. Markings for three aircraft.

Macchi M.52R (resin kit) - NOIX48020

The 11th Edtion of the Schneider Trophy series of races would see three Italian entries, two new Macchi M.67s sporting Isotta-Fraschini powerplants rated at 1800 hp and one Macchi M.52R powered by a Fiat AS.3 1000 hp engine. The two M.67s abandoned the race and would leave Tomasso Dal Molin to finish second with an average speed of 457.38 km/h, behind H.R.D Waghorn in a Supermarine S.6 powered by a Rolls-Royce R 1900 hp inline engine clocking an average a speed of 528.879 km/h.

Piaggio-Pegna P.c.7 (resin kit) - NOIX48018

Built in 1929 for the Schneider Trophy, the P.c.7 was some twenty years ahead of its time. Designed by Ing. Pegna, the P.c.7 seaplane featured a pair of small hydrovanes in order to eliminate the drag imposed by floats. At first the plane rested in the water and was driven by a small two-bladed water-screw below the rudder. As speed increased the vanes lifted the airplane out of the water to a point where the airscrew could be engaged. Tests were carried out by Warrant Officier Dal Molin. Insufficient in knowledge of drive-shaft and clutch design caused the P.c.7 to be abandoned after Dal Molin experienced trouble with the drive to the water screw due to clutch slip. The power unit was a 850 h.p. Isotta-Fraschini 12 cylinder water-cooled V engine, with which a maximum speed of 373 mph was anticipated. This compared to the 348 mph quoted for the FIAT C.29 and the Macchi M.67 racing seaplanes.

Macchi M.33 (resin kit) - NOIX48010

The last of the Schneider flying boats, but the first of the Castoldi-designed contenders, was the M.33 monoplane powered by a 450 h.p. Curtiss D.12 engine. In the 1925 contest the most successful Italian pilot was again de Briganti, who brought the M.33 into third place at 168.4 mph.
