The JRS-1 was a heavily militarized version of the Sikorsky S-43 which was first flown in 1935 and was often called the "Baby Clipper" after it's larger Pan Am big sister, the S-42.
This is the "undercarriage down" version of the model, an "in-flight" version is available here.And the S-43 is available here.
"53 S-43/JRS-1 "Baby Clippers" were produced (31 civil, 15 Navy, 2 Marine, and 5 USAAC)...... 10 of the Navy's JRS-1s were at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, all survived the attack and one, BuNo 1063, is undergoing restoration at the Smithsonian today. Two civil S-43s have also survived, one originally owned by Howard Hughes and one at the Pima Air and Space Museum (painted as a Marine JRS-1)."

Please Note that you have a choice of scale for this model, either 1/285th(6mm) or 1/288th - please check your choice in the top right corner of this page when ordering.
There is barely a millimeter's difference between the two BUT, I do know that many modelers like to be exact about these things.
WS&F Special Note: Unfortunately some of the rugged detail of the JRS-1 does not print well on this model in the Strong & Flexible plastics and so I am not offering these materials as an option.
