Again, a purposeful look that feels proper.

Do-18 & S-43  and  Z501 & Do-18 pass test as correct looking for "their times".  :smiley:     Do-18 & S-43 is my favorite of the two.  :smiley:

Like to do a number of your builds with in service schemes & markings.   Don't have the time to.   Perhaps do a couple sometime.

They do indeed look like the 'real deal'  :smiley:

On the CANT Z.501/Do 18 version, I could imagine the front Jumo diesel being shifted forward slightly for the production version. Or maybe just fitted with a shorter extension shaft than the pusher diesel?

Nice!!  Engine intakes appear to be far enough forward to not take in the spray from the floats.
