I'm hoping this will help someone design one.

I'm surprised you have never heard of this most famous plane. There is a famous movie called "China Clipper" telling one of the first transpacific flights. with Pat O'Brien and Humphrey Bogart. Excellent movie and a really beautiful aircraft. A nicely detailed card model would be a very nice addition to any collection.

I always thought the M-130 was the iconic China Clipper of the pre-war era. I first saw images of the plane while watching reruns of the 1936 "Ace Drummond" serial at the Waverly Theater in Baltimore in the early 50s (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2LCWfMvAEc - the M-130 appears at 8:42). You may or may not enjoy Ace Drummond (played by Dusty King) singing "Give me the open sky, give me a ship to fly" to calm the passengers in a turbulent sky over China at 9:45. I'm afraid Ace Drummon was not of the same quality as "China Clipper" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymbBi8oDKjQ) but at that age, I loved it. Airplanes, adventure, and the mysterious Far East! I couldn't ask for more.

Incidentally, the Ace Drummond comic strip upon which the serial was based was written by Eddie Rickenbacker - I still have my an autographed copy of his Fighting the Flying Circus, which I obtained at about the same time I was watching the adventures of Ace Drummond.

The M-130 - built by my home-town airplane manufacturer, the Glenn L. Martin Company of Baltimore - was the first American flying boat with oceanic range.

I, too, wish someone would design a paper model.

Thanks Don, for the movie links and memories around the Martin M-130. Curious how some of the flying boats became movie stars themselves, as in "Flying Down to Rio" and Sikorsky S-40. I could not help noticing that in one bit in "China Clipper trailer, there is a stunt double aircraft. At 22" the Sikorsky S-42 appears, in a head on shot (four motors, high wing on pylon, and twin tails). Maybe a little short of Clipper action footage in the editing room?
