    Aparently a couple of them made their way to Japan, the French used several after the war also.

    No, not really. the engine is done in two parts with the sparkplug wires molded on. A paint job and button it up.

    If your going to do the Japanese Ar, I might have a look through my books to check if I have her :) in some photos :)

    I also know theres a pretty cool Russian and Swedish and Finish AR-196 out there somewhere :D in case you want a diverse markings :)

    The Japanese Ar-196 was actually a German unit using them to support vessels in and near Japan, she was heading back to Germany in 42 (what she was doing near Japan no idea) and they decided to keep her closer to Japan for support. They were previously stationed in Malaysia.

    Good info, there, Igor ... However, I'm sure Paul will do her up in her native markings....
