    Kit : SuperModel Cant Z 1007
    Scale : 1/72
    Accessories : OOB

    Another kit that has been waiting years to built!!She will be OOB with the most complicated part of the build being the paint.

    History:A direct result of design studies began in 1935,[1] and derived from the twin float Z.506B, the Z.1007 prototype made its first flight in May 1937, powered by three 840 hp Isotta-Fraschini Asso inverted Vee liquid cooled engines[2] driving two bladed propellers.[3] The wooden aircraft received generally favorably reports from the test pilots and, following modifications, the type was put into production with CANT.[N 1]
    Z.1007bis (A) Alcione


    Production examples designated Z.1007bis were powered by Piaggio P .XI RC.40 14 cylinder radial engines,[4] driving three bladed metal Piaggio propellers. The first 34 examples had annular radiators[1] Aircraft from the first half of the production run had a single tail fin, which was replaced with twin tail fins in order to provide a better field of fire for the rear gunner.[3][N 2]
    Operational ServiceEdit

    After entering service in 1939,[4] the Z.1007 first went into action when 5 aircraft from 172a Squadrigila Autonoma RST of the Corpo Aereo Italiano flew from Melsbroek, Belgium, to join 10 BR-20M aircraft of 43 Storma in a bombing attack against Harwich on November 11, 1940.[5]
