Thanks. Neat job. I’ve never really looked into CASA’s products in detail. I’ve just come across them every here and there. Like f.i the Armée de l’Air flying a few of both the newest types, I think, and we up here had four for maritime surveillance, two Coast Guard and two Navy. I remember getting the opportunity to look inside one of the CG machines in the nineties, my first reaction being that the cockpit much resembled a car from the early sixties, such as a Volvo Amazon or an older VW Beetle. But they performed all right until one of the CG machines suddenly lost a wing when making a low pass over a friends house followed by a not too violent pull-up that broke the already severely fatigued main wing spar.
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

One of the most interesting projecs mentioned in last link, IMO, is INTA-20. Here you can see my depiction, based on information in mentioned link.

In original drawing, dimensions are not readable, but I think that wingspan is 20,00 meters; then I can deduce that length is 14,78 meters.

What if a liner derived from CASA C.2111?

Two derivatives from C.207 Azor. First with radials and a "special canopy" and the second one with special tail fin and Jets.  :thumbsup:

Very inventive, I like that one.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

In mid 50s Iberia decides to patron a project of an airliner to fly Madrid - Buenos Aires, non stop (10.050 km). CASA and INTA as technology partners design a 4 radials plane strongly influenced by DC-7, called INTA-40.

Here you can see INTA-40 along with its inspiration: DC-7C and INTA-20, which you can see in the thread devoted to CASA transports and liners. All of them in constant scale.

Designer's main interest was range. Fuselage is depper than DC-7's, allowing for tankage in belly area; besides this, it carries wing tips tanks. Accomodation is lower than DC-7's, but with more confort.

According to documentation in Secret Projects Forum, CASA-401 could look like this. Quite similar to italian G.222 on steroids IMO.
