Savoia S-21 Porco Rosso
From the Studio Ghibli movie Porco Rosso.
About this creation
COMPLETED--02/17/08

I am happy to say that my most ambitious project ever is finally completed. It hasn't been that long a build compared to other people's but I started it in November and have since then made way too many Bricklink orders to finish it. I would make an order from 2 or 3 stores only to find I forgot to order some needed bricks or had to modify my build to get a more true to the original design and as a result had to make more small orders. I hope everybody finds this a worthy homage to Porco Rosso! If you haven't seen Porco Rosso, watch it as soon as you can: it's one of my favorite movies.





The build for the engine was completed early on and made me very happy to see it actually turn out.

The front end was a challenge. I had to include the machine guns but it took me a while to figure out how.



Scale is really dictated by available Lego parts. I think I'm lucky that everything came together as well as it did. The propeller for example is almost perfect scale wise.







"A pig that can't fly is just a pig." That's my favorite line from the movie.. it might not be that way in the English version and is different from the subtitled version I have but that's the way I think it translates best into English from the original Japanese.

I really wanted the cockpit to be as detailed as possible since Ghibli put so much great detail into the movie version. I was able to build the foot peddles the dials and the control stick so I'm pretty satisfied.

I usually don't much care for anime but I saw Porco Rosso yesterday and found it surprisingly enjoyable. I'd never heard of it before seeing this MOC, so thanks for the movie tip!

Fantastic! Like Andrew said, you've captured the overall shape very well. This is a fitting homage indeed for an excellent movie.

Great angling on the wings, and you've captured the shape of Porco's plane very well.

That is a really great subject for lego airplanes. You probably won't see another Italian flying boat or any other Italian airplane in legos. Very nice!! I wonder if you could build a 3 engine bomber like an SM.79??

It has arrived... in all its glory... The hull is really well shaped here. As usual I wonder how you got the wings to make that angle without a lot of ugly exposed structure. Great job!

Very good. Porco Rosso is also one of my favourite movies. Try to do the blue Curtiss now.

I've fallen in love with this MOC. This is amazing. I love the details all over the thing! Such a great movie, and a very faithful representation of the plane.

B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!! And a fitting tribute to one of my favourite movies too; ah, great minds DO think alike. I know exactly what you mean about reordering from Bricklink: oh the AGONY of forgetting 1 or 2 tiny parts! Great build mate, very enjoyable!
