1/72 scale LF Models Curtiss C2R-2
"Navy Racer"

Curtiss C2R-2

The Curtiss C2R-2 was a float version of the earlier wheeled C2R-1, prepared for 1924 Schneider Trophy, and eventually cancelled.



This airplane set an unofficial world speed record of 227,5 mph.

This is really “shake and bake” kit. Even for a slow builder like me, it took only a week to complete it.



The moulds have only few bubbles, and a very little amount of filler was needed. I had a little trouble with floats (hard to align properly), and I changed very oversized exhaust pipes.
