Dammmn, that's a beautiful job!!  It's all the more impressive for being a vac-form.

Dammmn, that's a beautiful job!!  It's all the more impressive for being a vac-form.

...Bloody Damn Awful time building this model, not mechanically more than procedurally frustrating, i.e. complicated cockpit canopy pane placements well has having to replace all fuselage portal panes "ship in a bottle style" trying patience to breaking point, forward engine carburator stack breaking off & "growing feet" replicating replacement taking interminable hours, on and on-!!! The kit lacked water decals, left-over SEM Model ones employed, didn't have Ca.111 unit insignias nor number sets so "went generic" ala my FLY Models Ca.101 Tri-Motor build some months ago, are same size BTW. Big regret not finding buying & building a Aviation USK/Xotic-72 Caproni Ca.133 Tri-Motor completing the trio it slightly larger than the others, two chances last year buying one - cos la vita!

The cockpit glazing looks fantastic, despite the problems.

...Ignored BroPlan instructions replacing entire vacuform-molded cockpit area with clear plastic part necessitating major surgery, zero assurance flush fits with adjoining fuselage areas, damn glad I did-!!! Wish I'd not bought & built the bloody thing, bought it on pretext of also building the Aviation USK/Xotic-72 Caproni Ca.133, three up for sale last 18 months two within space of days, almost snagged one if had bidded higher. IMHO chances near none new 1/72nd Italian aviation subject releases out anytime soon, handfull over last 5 years bought & built, LOOP (long out of production) kits ala CANT Z.1018 Leone likely never be re-released, good time as any retiring from model building now!
