Here's an interesting model by Dornier. It was on display hoping to draw interst in the full scale community. Too bad it's not in kit or ARF form.
I only question the open cockpit behind the tractor engine, seems like a pusher design would be much more enjoyable.

Great looking Dornier! Here´s a flying boat from the same era with a pusher engine.
And yes, it´s an ARF:)

I´m not sure whether the Macchi is suitable for an electric conversion. For CG reasons, I guess the battery pack has to be located in front of the cockpit, This will result in long power leads.

Very interesting and a great link to the website.

there are many paper models of similar planes available .. and they convert nicely to Bluecor sheet foam ..
