Smile Caproni Ca 3 in 1/100 scale Dre Kampfflieger

Hello my friends!

I show in this thread my build log about the WW1 Italian bomber Caproni Ca 3.

I buy this kit in 2009 direct from Roman shop, so I started the build today.

The Ca 3 is a complex model is a trimotor biplane with twin booms. Roman capture everything details of plane, include cockpit, engines, turret structures.

I started the model aplly a coat of matt varnish in the sheets.



The next step is made the ten wheels from undercarriage, the kit use building scheme, so I turned to lamination with triplex paper...







Next steps: sanding the wheels, paint and add canvas...

Caproni Build

Thank you Pericles. I am interested in this kit and it is a lovely aircraft in real life. I hope watching your build will answer the many questions I have about building kits like this. As an example, I am used to kit parts having glue tabs on them and have no clue how to make wings without spars and ribs for interior bracing. Ric minigamer1953

Minigamer, the gluing pieces with tabs out is simple, the basic is a use a small portions of glue. For no deformation I use PVA white glue, in this case the chord of wing is very slim, and no exist the need for internal reinforcements, but I am predicting a small problem in the top wing, is a junction of two, for this case a use a internal conector made with 75g filecoat paper. At the stage of build is little early. I not know about other little surprises. My intent is a make small customizations if possible. The build log show this...

Cheers!!!

Péricles

Small updates...

I build the canvas wheels, are 10 pieces in total.



A tip for gluing small pieces: is a usefull tool, a hypodermical syringue, to distribute a small amounts of glue... To conform the piece I use a needle. I pressing the piece on his palm and making the circumference of the canvas to form the cone, before I painted the white line edges with a hidrocolor pen.









result: finished wheels.

I decide, make to superior wing, is segmented with two pieces, is a small problem, at the moment is a join to two pieces, I think in use a small piece of 75g paper joiner...

In general WWI model have a small wing chord, in this model Roman not use a internal reinforcement, because the shape of airfoil, use a curve...

In the pics the wing process build...



The tools used in process, the secret is apply small amount of glue the rear of wing, for fold I make a small valley in wing bord, for this I use a dental spatula, the edge lines are painted with hydrocolor pens...



I apply the glue...

For drying, is a important tip, I press the wing in the bench, this action produce a safe gluing, no produce a deformation in thw wing...



Finish I gluing the tip wing. and produce curve chord with a cylinder of plastic...



Pieces finish and reserve for future steps...

Continue soon...

Tahnk's Dom

In this week a produce little progress in the model, before a general build, I constructed many elements, I'm focused in pieces of cockpit at this time...





FIAT Revelli Machine guns, for produce perfect fold I use a old scalpel blade...





The same process build in the pilots column...





Control console and instrument board...



Crew seats...





Fuel tanks and other boxes...

So I decided make the rest of wings, and tail elements...





Inferior wings, the process to build is same of superior wings I show posts ago...





Stabilizer...





Rudders...

At this time I build some "spare" pieces...



Floor of aft gunner...





Ring gun of aft gunner, note in this piece is necessary cut the center first...



Fuselage radiators...

That is at the moment. I hope make more updates soon...

Cheers to all!
