Ambrosini Sagittario

After tests with a 45 sweptback wing fitted to an otherwise standard Ambrosini S.7, thus nicknamed Freccia (Arrow), the designer Sergio Stefanutti designed the Sagittario (Archer) powered by a 400kg thrust Turbomeca Marbore turbojet. Intended mainly for aerodynamic research into transonic compressibility, the Sagittario was built largely of wood, and flew for the first time on 5 January 1953. From this initial prototype Stefanutti subsequently developed the Sagittario II, which made its maiden flight on 19 May 1956.

Hi Rob. I liked the Sagittario I so much that I built a flying stick and tissue model of it. Do you happen to have any color scheme or markings for it ?
Regards.

Was this plane based on the Yak-15?

Sagittario II built by Aerfer was all metal, powered by Rolls Royce Derwent, capable of diving at Mach 1.1 (Jane's Pocket Book 12, 1976).
