Side Over look
The Macchi M.C.72 is a sea-based aircraft designed and manufactured for the Schneider Trophy Race by Italian
aircraft company Macchi Aeronautica. It has contra-rotating propellers and a V-type 24-cylinder engine. By
negating the powerful torque effect thanks to its large horsepower engine and propellers, the Macchi M.C.72
actualizes high speed and great maneuverability. The world speed record it set in 1934 of 709km/h for a piston
engine sea-based aircraft still remains to this day.
The scale of this papercraft is approximately 1/24 of the original size.
