Hi

Another type for us to get our teeth into. Does anyone have any photos and section drawings for this one.

Is it the largest floatplane ever built??

carved by Mike Fogarty as part of his large collection of seaplanes that I have bought.

Hello, friends!
Very unusual and beautiful airplane is discussed here.
I have some materials about it. I like muchly beautiful designs of famous italian engineer Filippo Zappata. I have the 1:72 plastic model of the CANT Z.506 and only can dream about such model of CANT Z.511 Idrogigante...

So, here are some pictures from me

Despite the only CANT Z.511A was sinked in september of 1943, it served to accumulate design and construction experience for the postwar airliner BZ.308.
