...Not many BroPlan Z.506C build photos on the Internet, your's & Alex Bigey's 2015 Build all could find doing random searches. Likely won't get to my Z.506C build till early December it now the last BroPlan vacuform build after the Savoia-Marchetti SM.95 it methinks my largest by size though not buik Italian aviation subject build, largest by bulk was the Piaggio P.108T build during August 2019.

The Z.506C was a beautiful plane. Alex Bigey's Z.506C is very well executed the only comment I would make is that White should be Bianco Avorio. In black and white photos it's easy to confuse the two colors. Still a gorgeous model. I-DOTE was later repainted in Grigio Azzurro Scuro 3.

...Still need to determine this Caproni Ca.316 color:

Also need to be sure the BroPlan kit has the decals for this aircraft otherwise will have to paint it generic Grigio Azzurro Scuro 3/Grigio Azzurro Chiaro 1.

Hmm...

...Thought it be white, not silver for sure, cabin door thought be blue-gray color. All this is moot, BroPlan kit doesn't come with decals to model this aircraft (methinks its the prototype) will have to paint it Grigio Azzurro Scuro 3/Grigio Azzurro Chiaro 1.

Unlikely white, white was used for red-cross and air-sea rescue. More likely as you suggested a light gray/aluminium as in the profiles and photos in ADI#5 Z.506 and the box art of the old Supermodel 1/72 Z.506. The Ca.316 was used for reconnaissance duties and was intended to replace the Ro.43 (also finished in an aluminium/silver dope) and was to be catapulted from warships.

Colors for Naval Aircraft:

You'd think that I'd refer to my own charts before answering a question by now :roll:

...Can't tell y'all how many times dead sure something so on right later finding out was dead wrong :oops: For what its worth, Wikipedia says none of the 14 Ca.316s "entered service" though this "hand crafted" wood model for sale art rendering on eBay suggests otherwise:

Image

Unless can find photos of other camouflaged Ca.316s will have to go generic as previously posted.

There was only a single prototype that flew on August 1940 which is the one in the photo.

...To bad the BroPlan kit didn't have the decals, may had provided painting info as well. BroPlan CANT Z.1007 Asso build going quite well, may be done by the 12th. Even with A/C going can't do much building, 109-F outside right now :shock: possibly a Cameron Park daily record, that plus smokey skies from area fires making live miserable for all here :(

We got a bit of a heat wave in August also. Since we're so far north anything above 25C is too hot for me. I remember living in Toronto, I wouldn't break a sweat until it reached above 30C and often worked in the open as a kid helping my dad in 35-40C weather. The hottest place I ever visited was Abu Dhabi where it reached 50+C almost everyday, and would cool down to a balmy 30C in the evenings. Here in Canada pools are heated, in Abu Dhabi pools are chilled.
