Hello all! Continuing my Italian saga, and as I did previously wrote on the Caproni 311 post, here is its predecessor, the 310. The fuselage is close to the 309 "Ghilbi" but the wings and engines will open way to the 311, and 311M series. This model is less easy than the 311 and is more in the spirit of SH as we used to know! Plane is from the 50 Squadriglia, 38° Gruppo based in Elmas near Cagliari in Sardinia in 40. Cheers!

That's brilliant.

 

What's the image on the propellors?  It looks like the "eye" charm you see on small Mediterranean fishing boats. Is it?

No! That's not Santa Lucia eye! But rather the logo of the prop! Thanks for looking.

Very nice! The Caproni 309 -314 family is a great subject for modelling! 

I did mine some 10 years ago, now I am thinking on 101,111,133.... 

Cheers

Hi Jean

 

This is very nice and not in your usual scale. Did you paint the green on sand or on the other way?

Many thanks. I wish there was a 309 available!

Indeed, it would be nice. However - Some teens years ago I made mine as scratch build based on some parts (actually - self made resin copies) of Italeri 311. If you wish it is here:

Now with kit of 310 it is a bit more easy since the conversion of fuselage is simplier. The wings and tail are basicly the same :)

Thanks JWM and kudos for your 309 scratch. They will probably be one available one of these days, and Special Hobby can without doubt develop the 313/314 line! Best regards, jean.

Very well done - not an easy scheme to pull off.

You have done a superb job.
