The Caproni Ca.311 was a light bomber-reconnaissance aircraft produced in Italy prior to and during World War II. It was a member of the large family of Caproni designs derived from the Ca.306 airliner prototype of 1935, and more directly a modification of the Ca.310 bomber. As with other related types, it was a low-wing cantilever monoplane of conventional design. This particular design incorporated the Ca.310's retractable main undercarriage, as well as the heavily glazed nose that had been tested on the Ca.310bis prototype. New features included a relocation of the dorsal turret to a position immediately aft of the cockpit, and additional glazing throughout the fuselage.

From 1940, this aircraft began to replace the IMAM Ro.37 in service, completing this process the following year. (Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caproni_…)

The British almost purchased a version of this aircraft, then WW2 started.

Nice work, I always intended to be a professional illustrator "when I grew up " ,then I grew up and, you know; life happens!

Aircraft profiles were always my "thing" This is a great piece. Love the variety of color schemes that the ww2 Italian Air Force had. You should post more of your work.

Thanks Bill, I exactly know what you mean ... life happens, shit happens, ... ;)
I have bought several books about the Italian military between 1920 and 1945, interesting subject and a great inspiration for upcoming illustrations.

Well, that sounds great: a bio-dynamic and full recyclable camouflage - pretty modern ;)
