Re: Retired In Kalifornia's Italian Aircraft Model Builds In Progress Photos

RIC, You might consider making vents an easier way. Please accept this in the light as easier for you, I do not want you to think it is a better way than yours. The way I did it was to get a piece of spru, cut it to length. Then I flattened one side. With my Dremel tool, I reduced it to the dimensio...

Re: Retired In Kalifornia's Italian Aircraft Model Builds In Progress Photos

Beautiful job, looking forward to completion. Is there a reason you did not install the air ventilation ductworks on top of the fuselage?

CANT 506C - WIP - V. Fiore

I am in the early stages of my build of the 506C, here are a few pictures and a brief description of progress. Cutting of the wing fillets and testing to check fit. Placed tape at the wing joint to locate where wing pins will be located on the fuselage. Because cabin windows were not aligned perfect...

Re: Cant 506 C

It has been a little over a month since I received my vac form conversion of the CANT 506C; I am sending some pictures of the progress made; Firstly the kit is not too difficult, but If I build another I would do a few things differently. Instead of cutting each window out separately and gluing in t...

Today I received my kits of the CANT 506 C and B.
Planing to paint it in the colors of the one registered I-DITO. Is it white with blue trim, or is it Ivery with blue trim?

Thank you for your help in this matter,

Vin

Re: Cant 506 C

For a fee of about a little over one hundred dollars, Mika of arctic decals will produce a beautiful set of decals for the cant 506C. Right now he is very busy and you would have to wait a while before he could produce them. The wait would be worth it.

Re: NEWS: SEM Model 1/48 Savoia Marchetti SM.84 by Vince Fiore

RIC, When you build your SM 84 I am sure that you will notice that the flight deck windscreen is incorrect. When I built this kit about 25 years ago I made a mold in the correct configuration with wood and then vacuformed it. Unfortunately this form is back in America and I am in Morocco otherwise I...

In conversation with him one day he told me."Vin never eat in a Chinese restaurant they are very dirty." I never did. One teacher told me a word to the wise is su...
