Hi my friends

In this thopic I will try to create one Bulgarian, military national treasure - Arado Ar 196 A3 - the only well preserved plane at the world

The model is 1/32 revell kit with a lot of after-market of course BigEd, metal machine-gun barrels from Master and resin parts from Quickboost

The plane will be post-war, from 1945, reg num:2, with one-color green camo and "ОФ" identification markings:



And let fun begins:







































Cheers friends

I know a site devoted to planes of this scale that would love to see this. I have seen a few builds of this kit but not to the level of additional detail you are taking this one.

Stunning detail!
And I'm a sucker for a float plane.

Chavdar, I too am a sucker for a float plane and the Arado Ar196 is as good as they come!

Often overlooked in kit form, my ideal wish would be to see the Arado and the Walrus both receive new tools in 1/72... but that's another tale for another time.

Your build looks stunning so far and your attention to detail is fantastic!
