The Schneider Trophy Race was a seaplane air race held from 1913 to 1931 and the Schneider Trophy was awarded to the winner of the race.
At the beginning of the 20th century, it was believed that seaplanes were more advantageous than landplanes in pursuit of high speed, and although the race was limited to seaplanes, it was a race to determine the fastest plane in the world.
Finemold’s R3C-0 manual will help you understand the R3C series. In the manual, it is presumed that the one that was crowned by R3C-0 is the aircraft numbered 3. This Atelier NOIX’s R3C-2 is the number 3 aircraft.
It’s a resin kit, not a plastic model.
The side of the fuselage is quite different from the R3C-2, and the outline of the float is also quite different.
