I would like to see a list of German ships that carried the Arado 196 so I can decide on the markings.

I do have the profiles from Wingspalette...

http://wp.scn.ru/en/ww2/h/21/2/3

The kit offers Bismarck codes.

Can I go with those ?

I'm certain we already had this discussion and it was more than appropriate! Bismarck

I was wrong yet again.

I recieved the kit today and it has Tirpitz marking.

I will deal with the correct markings for this GB after the painting is done.
