An excellent series, the CF-106 looks so right. Good work on the paintjobs too.

Thanks for the comments guys, now its just a matter of downscaling it, in my AU the Royal Navy had two CVA-01 carriers and Canada ordered another two. I will also try to concentrate more on the aircraft i already have, making more variants and paint schemes instead of making new designs (Doesn't mean i don't have more designs).

CAV AC12

The CAV AC12 is a mid-size, narrow-body twin-engine jet airliner that was designed and built by Construcciones Aeronáuticas Venezolanas. It is the manufacturer's largest single-aisle passenger aircraft. The twinjet has a two-crew member glass cockpit, Fly by wire controls, turbofan engines of sufficient power to allow takeoffs from relatively short runways and higher altitudes, a conventional tail and, for reduced aerodynamic drag, a supercritical wing design. Intended to replace the smaller three-engine AC9 on short and medium routes, the AC12 can carry 200 to 295 passengers for a maximum of 6.000 to 7.800 km, depending on variant. The AC12 as a necessary technological leap for the Venezuelan commercial aviation.

The AC12 was produced in two fuselage lengths. The original AC12-100 entered service in 1989; the AC12-100F freighter variant, and the AC12-100C, a passenger-freighter combi model, debuted in the early 1990s. The stretched AC12-200, began service in 1997. Passenger AC12s have been modified to special freighter (CF) specification for cargo use, while military derivatives include the transport, VIP carriers, and other multi-purpose aircraft. Private and government operators have also customized the AC12 for research and transport roles. All AC12s are powered by Aerotécnica TR-11A-45, Rolls-Royce RB211 or Pratt & Whitney PW2000 series turbofans.

CAV AC9

Developed in tandem with the AC8 the AC9 tri-jet was a commercially necessary reaction to VeneAvia’s VA110. The AC9 was originally conceived by CAV in the late 1950s as the CAV 221 in response to VIASA's request for a new short to medium haul haul jet airliner. At the time, speed was one of the most important considerations in airliner design so the aircraft was designed with a low drag wing, with the engine mounted at the rear of the aircraft so the wing was kept as clean as possible. The first AC9 aircraft entered service with VIASA in 1965, having first flown in 1964. The aircraft performed well and was reliable, but VIASA soon realized that they required larger variants of the aircraft. CAV responded first with the 200 variant, with a slightly stretched fuselage and uprated engines and the 300, featuring uprated engines, longer fuselage, improved high lift devices (slats) and greater capacity and range.

Nice designs!!! Just two "clearance suggestions"...
_ I would move the AC-12s 2nd door a little fwd, away from the engine (you can move the fwd cargo door a little fwd too to avoid having two large cutouts close to each other)
_ I would move the AC-9-300 aft cargo door a just little aft, halfway the wing trailing edge and the engine...
I think these little changes will avoid a lot of ground equipment strikes... ;)

Very nice.
I don't quite get the logic of shading on the top view. ;)

Thanks for the comments guys. ;)

@Progress: I've already made the changes you suggested, thanks for pointing them out.

@eswube: I don't really know how the shading on the top view should look.

There are no rules (and frankly, most FD top views don't have much shading at all). But currently Your drawing has lighter shade on top surfaces of wings and horizontal stabilizer and on sides of no.1 and 3 engines (but not the central no.2), as well as across the leading edge of vertical stabilizer.
My suggestion would be either to dispose the shading at all, or to simply lighter shade in exactly the same areas as on the side views.
