Here is the civil Caproni of the London-Cape Town attempt in all its Italian redness. For the step-by-step building article please go here in Britmodeller. (I made a mistake on the WiP and many photos are now missing, but I re-uploaded many of them at the end of that post): http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235027739-caproni-ca310-civil/ My thanks to Fabrizio D'Isanto who provided useful input. He is not responsible for any mistake I may have committed. As I mentioned before, there were several Caproni Ca.310 civil machines that participated in raids, record attempts and long distance flights: I-BFBA, I-BFBB, I-BFBC, I-LIRA, I-MANU, I-ORSA, I-LUAL, I-META, I-MOTO, I-ORSA, I-LUPA, I-ABMI, I-GARA, I-SVSB, for some of which you may find photos online. Details vary between them. There is a clip showing the machines at the Saharian Raid here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWIBtENfu7c All these other machines wore an ivory/metal scheme with most likely black regs. I used a custom decal set by Mika Jernfors of Arctic Decals. Many drab military models offered in the market can be easily converted into their civil counterparts (and again, in this case the manufacturer fortunately did include at least one "civil" option, although not really civil) for a more appealing result. This kit has very good detail and external parts' surface. The resin and P.E. accessories in the box are also nice. It is good that with some modifications this well done kit can be converted into many options for the civil versions of it. Old Airfix converted to one of the Corsa (I-12), rather poor Dujin Breda 33 kit righted, and the nice Azur kit of the Caproni, to establish a size comparison:
