Post by Will » Mon Feb 28, 2011 12:53 pm

Hi,

I show you my last production a CR 42CN 1/48° scale from Classic Airframes.
This is the Capitano Corrado Ricci's CR 42CN, 300° squadriglia 167° Gruppo Autonomo at Ciampino airfield near Rome in 1942.

One of the most realistic camo jobs I have seen. One thing though. From the plane view the white band is off. But still a better job than I could have done.

Wil,

A beatiful build of Capt Corrado Ricci's CR.42CN. I am impressed at how you captured the details that manufacturers have forever seemed to miss on this aircraft, namely the retangular air intake and double oil coolers. The paint scheme and motteling on the lower cowling is especially well done. I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

Chris
