48th scale "Savoia S.21" by Finemolds

Diorama depicts a scene from the movie "Porco Rosso"

Built 19th October to 29th December 2020

 

A true 2020 lockdown project. I had not even seen the movie "Porco Rosso" until April 2020 when I found it on Netflix. I had ben familiar with the Savoia S.21 after having seen other model-makers build it on social media. But I knew very little about it other than the name of the film it came from. Porco Rosso is an anime from Studio Ghibli - one of many that I watched during the spring and summer 2020.

 

Once I saw it I was hooked and I knew I just had to build it. The aircraft itself is completely fictitious although its layout is based closely on several existing designs from pre-war Italy. The film is a fantasy depicting the exploits of a swashbuckling pilot who is cursed to look like a pig. He is based upon an isolated island in the Adriatic but his plane is giving him problems after a battle with sea-plane pirates. In this scene he is attempting to fix recurrent engine problems. He fails and makes a fateful decision to go to Milan for repairs.
