I'm sure you do, Chris! :wacko:  :wacko:  :wacko:

Barolo, Bardolino, Chianti, Frascati, Gambarella, Soave,  Valpolystrippa Valpolicella,  Sophia Lauren,  Claudia Cardinale  and no doubt several other Italians too.  I suspect that linguini and cutoletta Milanese  might possibly hit the list too.

Quote from: zenrat on Yesterday at 03:37:32 AMI have a weakness for Italian trimotors.  I've already built an SM-81 and have an SM-79 and a Z.1007 in the stash.


Single or twin fin? Or does the kit supply both options? I prefer the twin fin version but if the kit has the option for either I'd be tempted to make it a triple fin. ;D

Twin.  Supermodel released separate kits of the two subtypes.

I may have found and ordered a Z.506 on evil-bay last night.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Nice! Three engines and floats, that may be a good addition  ;D

Italian designer's in the 30's and 40's seemed to have had a good eye for proportions, I cannot think of an aircraft by them in that era that I don't like the look of. They may have been slightly underpowered and/or light on armament but they looked good.

Always an important consideration for Italian designers: Looks, then Function! :wacko:
