Cant 506 C

Post by Vincent Fiore » Thu Jul 23, 2020 10:57 am

To all the members, Avationmegastore just notified me that they just received three kits of the Broplan Cant 506 c, and the 506 B. I just ordered one of each.
I know that some of you are eager to get your hands on these kits, especially RIC. Therefore act quickly and good luck on getting one of the two remaining
kits.

Aviation Megastore sold me their then last 1/72nd scale BroPlan Z.506C vacuform in stock on February 10, 2020. BroPlan's still in business, unable to find their website, wonder whether they're re-releases, consigned sales or "found" inventory :?: The Z.506C conversion with Italeri Z.506B donor parts follows the LF/KORA SAIMAN 202bis & 202/M, Valom Caproni-Campini N.1 builds all hopefully done by August 20th, before commencing Z.506C conversion work must clean the rugs necessitating having to move everything off them, built model collection included, all by my lonesome, no easy task for sure :crazy:

The Z.506C will be first of six Italian subject vacuform kit builds, second of two vacuform + intected plastic molded builds since 1991 first one that year converting the Airfix AVRO Landcaster MK.I to MK.II with vacuform & resin Bristol Hercules radial engine parts from a believed long ago gone kit maker (Vac Wings-72 methinks) decades before Airfix tooled-up & released their excellent all injected-plastic MK.II kit, desperately need water decals for the Z.506C build, BroPlan kit didn't come with any :wtf: :twisted:

You'd think Broplan would contact me, I could probably sell their entire inventory of these kits.

Scalemates shows these new 2020 releases so they're still in business, know little about them other they've been in business for decades cranking out all kind'a vacuformed aviation subjects other kit builders have passed over.

THE most enigmatic for me of all 1/72 scale Italian aviation subject kit releases are the 1980s KPL No.16 CANT Z.1018 apparent resin, 1999-vintage Legato LK041 CANT Z.1018 & LK065 Z.1018CN resins + vacuform w/brass etched parts kits none of which have been available since 2006 when commenced building my "Italians". I'd give anything to have ANY of them regardless of condition so long as can build ONE of these critters :!: Other "wish I had" is the 1994-vintage Aviation USK AV-1012 Caproni Ca.133, twice this year passed on eBay bidding for them :twisted:

That kind of explains it Richard, if Broplan don't have a website you can bet they have no idea Stormo even exists.

BroPlan has a Polish business address on kit boxes & instructions, no website URLs alas, they apparently wholesaling their wares via third-party hobby product retailers. Everywhere have searched tonight its on-line hobby retailers selling them, Choroszy Modelbud, LF/KORA, Special Hobby by contrast retails via their websites. There's some logic here; why retail & deal with thousands of customers rather than a few third-party retailers particularly if BroPlan has had successful long-term business relationships with Aviation Megastore (AM) for one? Complaints about defective products still could be addressed to BroPlan via their snail-mail business address; keeping fingers double-crossed none of the six Italian aviation subject kits had bought from AM are defective, royally ticked I'd be considering how damned expensive they were :evil:

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.

...Already "spent a dime" on the BroPlan Z.506C vacuform, want to get the darn thing built before mid-September! I likely gonna have to buy extra tools & supplies to build the six vacuforms, don't wanna spend single penny more on them, darn things sit like "Alien eggs" ready to crack open & attack my mind ala COVID :crazy:

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
