    Nicely done! You should take some solo shots of that green and tan camo one for us!

    Sure, I've got these two. I'll have to take some better pictures when I get a chance.




    I based it on the card in flight of giants and made the cages from styrene and the insides of lighters. I may try it on the Ares ones some time as they look just right.

    Those Capronis are very well done Ian.
    I especially like the cage for your rear gunner and the cammo effect.

    Shapeways Caproni Ca.3. Not very historical livery.

    A very nice rendition Roland. I can see we are going to have some real competition when the next painting challenge comes along.

    The thread about these is here. It's quite a long ramble and would take up too much room as part of this thread!

    Well folks, I just could not help myself. While not a repaint, this is a modification that I was compelled to do after all my work on Shapeways Be2c and Caudron G4. The Caproni looked incomplete. A few photos showed me the way to adding nacelle strut support not included. I used heated sprue extrusions and 32 gauge wire plus my very versatile Bandai 144 crewmen. Ah, now I feel better.Click image for larger version.

    Here are shots of my 1st Bombardment Squadron Capronis - they'll eventually be flying over the water instead of sitting on it...

    Luke - Please post that type of info in the Sale-Trade-Wanted Classifieds sub-forum rather than the painting showcase (you will find that the source is already known & being pumped ! )
