  3. Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale Build Guide Series No.5 KLP Publishing KLP Publishing are extending their reach in digital publishing of guides for modellers. Mainly dealing with the larger scale 1/32 models. In this new 154 page e-book modeller Kent Karlson brings us not one but two builds of the Fly Models Arado Ar 234. The first features an aircraft post surrender in Denmark and Kent has gone to town with the aftermarket on this one. For the second build he converts the kit to the V6 four engined prototype.
  4. Good day all! Hope you are all keeping well, or as well as you possibly can. This is my latest completion, Hasegawas AR234 B in 1:48. I got this quite cheap as a second hand from my LHS so I also splashed out on a couple of extras. I used the Aires Cockpit detail set along with the landing gear bay set. Both of these sets are exquisite and beautifully cast. The cockpit set is well worth it as the greenhouse style cockpit canopy really calls out for some extra detailing. The landing gear bay is also beautifully produced but unfortunately the gear well door openings are so small you can really s
  5. Ok this is part two of a new project that I have sort of been hinting about and the base components have been photo bombing. Again I blame Arnold for this rash of “unusual” builds. Basically this is a “what shall I do with the left-overs” build, but after having a look at what will be involved a far more substantial build than the Arado one. One of the big issues was to the layout of the undercarriage and to where to fit it! With the two engine pods for the BWM’s there is no room for undercarriage. I could have gone with something exotic like a bicycle mains with outriggers but that does

  9. A fun project from beginning to end, only watered down because the weights in the nose got lose. It was brush painted in RLM 79/70/65. I still have to come up with an interesting Luft 46 story.
  10. Huma's very nice 1/72 Arado Ar 80. Great fit of parts and sharp trailing edges, it just needed a bit of extra detail in the cockpit.
  11. My daughter Rose (aged 11) has decided to join the GB, I hope that's OK ? While mrs Jockney was at her " Book Club" make that wine drinking club tonight, I though I would sneak a bit of time with the Be-4. Rose asked if she could have a go, so never one to miss an opportunity to start another kit, I raced off to the stash to see what fitted the bill. These 2 were the first to break cover, so she had a choice. She chose the Arado, so below are the necessary photos to prove its unstarted. P
  12. Ok time for another project, can’t have the production studio sitting around ideal now can we!! Ok this is a project I had talked about previously and more recently with Arnold (Arniec), and well once I get an idea in my head I just can’t help myself. I will do a background story for this but basically I’m taking the Arado Ar-234, which is one of my favourites and playing around with the design. Last time, well it’s still in progress, I took it to one extreme; Turbo Prop/Swept Wings/P5 Nightfighter nose. All were planned for it at one stage but probably never together!! Ok this
  13. Still something that had had to be finished but started in 2016. The kit came together well and I find it pretty detailed cosidering it entered production in 1979 IIRC. Colours are Vallejo model Air and some Revell Aqua Color for details. Fit of the clear parts was a bit problematic, especially the fit of the windshield to fuselage and to the first component of the canopy. Everything else went together well. Have a look.
  14. Revell 1/32 Arado AR196A-3 Seaplane "FINAL REVEAL!!": Hello Guys, Following on from my "Build Update #6" posting, I assembled the canopy onto the fuselage, attached an EZ-Line antenna, glued all the light lenses into their locations, glued the pitot tube and counter-balance weights onto the underside of the wings, along with door handles on the canopy frame sections, and, fitted the engine cowlings and engine bay doors in their open positions to complete her!! So, here are the "Final Reveal" images of my completed Arado AR196A-3...I hope you enjoy the views as much as I enjoyed building her!
  15. Hello Everyone, I have just joined the forum and this is my first contribution to Britmodeller. I hope you enjoy this build thread? History: The Arado Ar 196 was a shipboard reconnaissance low-wing monoplane aircraft built by the German firm of Arado starting in 1936. The next year it was selected as the winner of a design contest and became the standard aircraft of the Kriegsmarine (German navy) throughout World War II. Design and development In 1933, the Kriegsmarine looked for a standardized shipboard reconnaissance aircraft. After a brief selection period, the Reichsluftfahrtministeri
  16. Hello all A few pics of one of my latest completions - Revell's Arado AR 196 in 1/32. All built out of the box with just a Montex Mini Mask for the canopy, and what a lovely kit to build. Loads of lovely detail inside and out, so I've posed it with everything open and with one wing folded. Eventually painted with a mix of Tamiya and Mr Hobby acrylics. I had intended to go with Humbrol's range of RLM colours for the RLM 72/73 topside camo, but these proceeded to block my airbrush in no time at all, and the paint i managed to get onto the plane had a horrible gritty finish to it that i could h
  17. I recently got a Hasegawa Arado 234C "anti-ship attacker" (the 4 engined Arado) and I plan to start building it soon, but I do note the cockpit glazing looks different to the regular 2 engined version, and my question is does the Aires resin cockpit work with the 234C version (as it is designed for the 234B)? It looks like a nice upgrade, but obviously if it is the wrong shape for the 234C I don't want to spend the money on it, only to hack it to pieces to make it fit!
  18. Hi, i lost instructions for the HUMA Modell Arado Ar 396 kit. Is Huma company still active? I can´t find their website or email address.
  19. This model was started a while ago by my husband before we both went through a big model making dry spell. Now we're both back on track we thought we might as well start a build log. The first and oddest thing you notice about this model is that they give you this lovely framed interior, then if you buy the Eduard photo etch like he did, you find you need to cover it up with a big blank panel. Much research says that yes this is the right thing to do. So despite my disappointment, accuracy won out. He found that the cockpit actually goes together very well when carefully fitted, although i

  24. Found this little gem on eBay just before Christmas and I'm really looking forward to this build. I'm going to be engraving the panel lines and I have a nice set of resin wheels that came with the decals to replace the very bland kit parts. The decal choice was born of necessity as the kit decals have yellowed, they are far worse than the photo suggests. There were a few decal choices out there but for some reason these caught my eye. When I did a bit of research I found the Bulgarian Air Force (One of the worlds oldest, being established in 1906!) flew 24 of the AR 96 from May 1940 and th
