1) Yes, that is the M67
2) There are no official drawings of the S51 and the exact dimensions are uncertain. There are only a few poor quality photographs. All 3-views drawings are best-guess
3) This is one attempt to produce a good drawing of the S51 using a model (which may possibly have been based on the S51) shown in a 1934 paper from l'Aerotechica, translated by NACA, and a photograph

Thnaks for quick responce! :D
1922 race was held in the Bay of Naples. Naples is scenic and is near Vesuvio volcano and Pompeii. Pizza, sea food and wine are good wonderful place.
But our guide told us don't get off the bus in the city because it's little dangerous for Japanese tourists. ;D

Frightful?? That means "scary"... At first I thought you said the book was awful, or terrible (i.e. bad)!
You want to use the word "awesome" or "terrific" (i.e. good) instead... ;)

No problem I understand what you mean ;). It is part of the fun of these forums that we talk with people from so many countries who do not have English as their first language and I congratulate them all on their efforts. I think that you are Japanese, which makes writing in English very difficult for you and you do very well.
Thank you for your kind comments about my book

Thanks you very much my professor and my dear hesham-san for your gentle words. :D
Anyway it's a really amazing book.
No doubt I'm a very poor speaker of English. Perhaps my Japanese-English auto translator did not work well. ;D
Please forgive me to upload part of book cover here.

Sorry Hesham but you are confusing two discussions, my reply was to Blackkite

On your subject, if you title a thread 'Various Italian Aircraft' then you cannot be surprised if the discussion covers many different types of Italian aircraft, can you? If you wanted to limit it to specific projects and aircraft then you should have chosen a better title.

Being the instigator of the "Various..." topics on this forum (in an attempt to slim down those all-and-sundry kind of threads) I'd like to underline the fact that those "Various..." topics are meant only for aircraft that can't be found in other topics. For instance, "Various Macchi aircraft" would be for all Macchi types that don't (yet) have a specific topic. "Various Italian aircraft" is for all Italian projects that are not covered in existing manufacturer-related topics. Generally speaking, it's safe to say that those very generic topics by country are NOT for aircraft by major manufacturers.

A sensible idea but as this thread started ten years ago I guess it was too early to fit your template. Given it is now a random collection of well known and less known topics its probably a nightmare for the mods to untangle and best left untouched.

Hi Ca.405.
http://www.airwar.ru/enc/cww2/ca405.html
"In the year 1938 the company was commissioned by a special version of the Caproni aircraft intended for racing Istres-Damascus-Paris. It was a modification of the bomber Piaggio P v.32bis with large range for setting records and narrow fuselage, it gained the name Caproni-Reggaine Ca. 405 Procellaria. Was contracted to build two copies of the plane (mm. and 375 mm. 376).
To save money for record flight developed the first prototype P v.32bis, and the second prototype aircraft was ready January 4, 1938 February 25 in the tests this machine is wrecked due to problems in the engine and if the landing has been completely broken down, taking the lives of test pilot Mario Gamma.
Flights were delayed, and with the entry of Italy into the war about it and it is forgotten."

Hi CANT Z.508.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CANT_Z.508
http://italianaircraftwwii.blogspot.jp/2015/03/cant-z508.html

"The CANT Z.508 was a three-engine Italian flying boat developed from the CANT Z.501 for use as a heavy bomber.
"Designed as a scaled-up three-engine version of the single-engine Z.501 for use as a heavy bomber. The aircraft was not put into production although the prototype set several world records for its class, including the lifting of a 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) load."

Excellent RC Z.501 flight!

Caproni Ca.161 high altitude record aircraft.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caproni_Ca.161

"The Caproni Ca.161 was an aircraft built in Italy in 1936 in an attempt to set a new world altitude record. It was a conventional biplane with two-bay, staggered wings of equal span based on Caproni's Ca.113 design. The pressure-suited pilot was accommodated in an open cockpit.
On 8 May 1937, Lieutenant Colonel Mario Pezzi broke the world altitude record with a flight to 15,655 m (51,362 ft). The following year, Pezzi broke the record again in the more powerful Ca.161bis, making a flight to 17,083 m (56,047 ft) on 22 October 1938. As of 2015, this record still stands for piston-powered biplanes.
A final altitude record for floatplanes was set on 25 September 1939 in the float-equipped Ca.161Idro, piloted by Nicola di Mauro to 13,542 m (44,429 ft). As of 2012, this record also still stands."

"The Caproni Ca. 103 was a twin engined biplane bomber developed by the Italian company Caproni in the late 1920s and stayed at the prototype stage.
Extreme evolution of the series began with the previous Ca. 73, characterized by inverted and placement of sesquiplana haze tandem engines above the fuselage and in tractor-pusher configuration, developed in parallel with monoplanes equal role Ca. 101, 102, twin-engined, and Ca., failed to impose themselves against the latter, superior results thanks to their more modern setting, and the project was abandoned."

Judging by engines and tailplane, I'd say it represents the first prototype Ca.66. Not sure about that nose glazing though ...
Thanks a lot. Ummm....Ca.66.
How about Ca.87? Also horizontal tail stabilizer was biplane!

"In 1927 year among Polish emigrants in the United States the idea about organizing the Polish flight across the Atlantic. Only two years later, Stanley Adamkevič of Chicago was able to organize the plant. It was supported by pilot 3-th Regiment Captain Adam Kowalczyk and former pilot of PLL LOT Włodzimierz Cliches.
As a result, Italian Caproni engineer personally gave them one night bomber Ca-73ter (Ca-82) on the basis of which decided to build a transatlantic aircraft Ca-87. First of all aircraft converted for a possible landing on water. Work progressed quickly, and in early May 1929 year the aircraft was ready, and the first time it launched June 15, 1929 year. Then he got a proper name-"Polonia".
Start flight planned on July 4, 1929 year on American independence day. To do this, the plane had flown from Italian airfield at Medionali airfield in Baldonnel, Dublin Ireland, awaiting favorable winds. Route paved until Canadian airfield from Terranova had intended to fly to Chicago. However, Isotta Fraschini engines worked intermittently and immediately after take-off from further ways. The plane was returned to the Italian firm, where he was converted into a bomber."

Ca.66.
http://www.airwar.ru/enc/bww1/ca66.html
In the early 20-ies of the Technical Department of the Ministry of aviation in Italy announced new requirements for quad night bomber. In 1921 year to these requirements the company Aeronautica Caproni began designing aircraft, received the designation LB. 4.
At the beginning of the year 1922 aircraft replaced the designation Ca. 66, was completed. He was a four-seater car design equipped with blended biplane four engines SPA 6a power 200 HP, installed in pairs.
For military trials was built two prototype (MM. 16 MM. 17), which in the same year, were transferred to the test centre at Guidonia. The plane received good evaluations, especially for maneuverability and security, but the series never went.

Yup, you're right ... and the Ca.87 fuselage is a better match than the Ca.66. Still puzzling over that nose glazing though.

"MF intelligence followed. 4 CMASA company established transport flying boat MF. 5. It was developed on the basis of bylabyla Wal aircraft. InženerGvido Gaudi (Guido Guidi) seriously reworked the design of German boats creating your project. MF. 5 wing was parasol-type and was sponsonami on the body for better stability on the water. The aircraft was capable of carrying up to 10 passengers and was powered by two V-shaped engines Fiat a. 24R with a capacity of 750 HP (559 kW) installed in tandem with tractor and pusher propellers.
The first prototype aircraft (MM. 270) with propeller made his flight in December 1931 year. The second prototype (MM. 271) flew on September 10, 1933 year already with three propeller.
By this time, the competition for civil transport boat was cancelled and both prototypes were transferred to S.A.N.A. (Società Anonima Navigazione Aerea) in Genoa. There the boats got civil registration numbers MM. 270-I-AZEF and MM. 271-I-AZER and were used for flights in the Western Mediterranean Sea.
