The Cant Z.1007 Alcione or "Kingfisher" was a three-engine medium bomber used by the Italian Regia Aeronautica, Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force, Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana and Luftwaffe during World War II. The Cant Z.1007 was developed from the Cant Z.506 seaplane, an aircraft that had established many world records in the late 1930s. It was a land-based version and had many improvements, especially the engines. Filippo Zapata, the father of many aerodynamically streamlined aircraft created a very potent aircraft with the Z.506. As a land-based bomber, it could have been better than the machines already in service, and therefore, a first series of 32 were ordered, and designated Z.1007 Asso, after its 830 hp Isotta-Fraschini Asso inline engines.

Designed as a three-engine medium bomber, the Z1007 was first flown in March, 1937.

De Agostini 1:144 Aircraft

The De Agostini "1:144 Aircraft" range presents affordable, ready-made plastic models of military aircraft in 1:144 scale. These are very much "entry level" models, with less quality and detail than many other ranges. They are also packaged in unmarked styrofoam containers. Nevertheless, the low price and range of subjects does make this line attractive to collectors on a budget.

De Agostini display model airplanes feature:

  • Molded plastic construction (some releases include diecast metal components).
  • Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Removeable extended landing gear but no closed gear doors.
  • Presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight".
