The corner of my paper planes

Hello everyone, this is the first design that I finish and I want
to share with you, the Caproni CA-311M in 1/60 scale
(originally I was thinking of doing it in 1/72 scale) I hope
you like it and I hope you have no problems in its assembly.
Saludos!
Juan.

That is one very good looking model,and an Italian twin engine bomber !

I really hope that weathering shows up after printing .It looks fantastic and it looks like you put considerable time into it.

One thing I could add from myself.It seems like lighter colors print much better with home printers I got to use over the years.Darker ones sometimes come out right and a lot of times come out strange possibly because they draw ink from cartridges too fast.
I run into that problem even with commercial printers.In future I would suggest going for lighter color schemes.

That doesn't mean I won't build this model,of course I will .Thank you very much for this model.

Thank you very much for your words...and it is true Carol,
the weathering and this type of model decoration do not usually
work very well in the printers of our homes...especially in my
old Epson...it will be difficult for me to change This painting
technique, I worked many years as a draftsman, drawing and above
all painted in the same way for different publications (although
with pencils, acrylics, watercolors, etc.) but I recognize that
designing for our home printers is something completely different
for these points to keep in mind...anyway, I hope you enjoy this
model, as I enjoy designing it in my quarantine...another model will
be on the way soon.
Saludos!
Juan.

What a wonderful gift! You've done an outstanding job texturing this model. It shows just the right amount of weathering, highlighting and shadowing. The subtle mottling adds interest. Per decal sets and illustrations though, I believe that the fasces symbol should be axe head forward on both sides of the fuselage. The port side one should be flipped 180 degrees.

Many thanks for making this model available, Juan!

It looks like you have done a very good job of designing and engineering the model.

The CA-311 was a good-looking airplane, and your art work and design provide an excellent representation of it.

Don

Muchas gracias / many thanks.
Just in case some one would like to build it in 1/72, reduce it 83% and 60% to 1/100.
I think this is a first in paper.
Congratulations.

ps any other model in the near future?
