We call a subfield k′⊆k‾ a plane model-field of definition for C if C descends to k′ as a smooth plane curve over k′, that is if there exists a smooth curve C′/k′ defined over k′ which is k′-isomorphic to a non-singular plane model F(X,Y,Z)=0 with coefficients in k′, and such that C′⊗k′k‾ and C are isomorphic. In this paper, we provide (explicit) families of smooth plane curves for which the three fields types; the field of moduli, fields of definition, and plane-models fields of definition are pairwise different.
