1/72 Super Model Cant Z 506
This is another old one from the stash. While several versions can be built from this kit, I tried to choose what I thought was the most colorful. I enjoyed the build, and thought the little research I did, most interesting. It was a very successful design, and carried on until 1959 in it’s ASR role, and used by several countries.
I first primed the model, then painted the wings with a Krylon red. When thoroughly dry, I masked off the red with Scotch brand Washi tape. (this stuff is wonderful) I had virtually no runs or bleed, through this tape. I hand painted the tail. The silver, except the cowls, was a Ford Metallic Silver automotive paint, I found on closeout, and thought I’d give a try. The cowls received a separate treatment, as per a few of the photos I’d seen. While the props look unpainted, they are actually to the version I was trying to copy.
