Cant 18 seaplane, Uruguay, scratchbuild 1/72

Recommended Posts

I will post today, with your indulgence, Three Old Builds from my times as a sinner.

Their only purpose for me is to illustrate examples of scratchbuilding.

Here is the first one.

In my defense I would say that these machines never fired a shot, being Uruguay the peaceful, welcoming and charming little country it is. 

These models were made as a commission, long ago, for a local collector.

 

The Cant.18 was a member of a successful and large family of Italian flying boats.

The graceful lines of the type are complemented by the presence of the Issotta Fraschini V6 engine, actually a six cyl inline engine in spite of the “V”, and the Warren truss bracing.

The type flew for the first time in 1926.

Whatt a beautiful model! Thanks too for the build photos - as usual so very useful. The beaching trolley is a work of art in itself too!
