From the publisher:
A rare look at the Sikorsky S-43/JRS-1 “Baby Clippers” flown by Pan American Airways in the 1930s and by the U.S. Navy in World War II. Having survived the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, one of the Navy’s JRS-1 flying boats is being restored at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center.

FSM says:
Standard issue from Ginter, who presents the plane in modeler-friendly format with plentiful detail photos, inside and out.
