Still one of my favourite aircraft, and I particularily like this colour scheme.

Next up, the Amiot 143 series?

Nicely done, as always!
Thanks for the education. Frankly, I'd never heard of this plane, and looked it up 'in the source of all knowledge and wisdom -- Wikipedia!)

Thank you!  It is kind of obscure, I first noticed it because it has really long wings, so a did a few (simplified) top views for t-shirts, and finally came back to it again to do profiles. :)
