Summer 2015 (July) Micro Builder Program model

Background:

There is not a lot of information available on this quirky little design. What attracted us to it as a potential model design was a wonderful line drawing that we had stashed away in our future projects file. A search of the internet yielded some additional information including a few photos.

Lifelong Italian aviation enthusiasts, brothers Umberto and Ettore Ricci, started their aviation careers with rigid hot-air airship models and free flight gliders, designed and built in their youth. They went on to design huge flying boats, and a series of small aircraft, conceived as flying motorcycles. The Ricci Triplane is one of these designs.  The 10-foot, 7-inch wing span aircraft, was powered by a six-cylinder Anzani engine that could propel the plane through the sky at approximately 78 miles per hour. The lovely little triplane was built for a competition of small light aircraft, held in 1919, it came in behind a few other competitors, including the little Breda Pensuti Triplane. 

Although The Ricci Triplane is largely forgotten today, it can still take to the skies – in model form at least. The Stevens AeroModel Ricci Triplane UM features a modern kit design that builds trouble-free and quickly, thanks to modern design processes, pioneered by Stevens AeroModel.  

Kit Includes:

  • Precision laser cut parts 
  • Full size detail sheets with markings template
