    Hi Guys
    Here's some photos of the Arado196 that I finished back in January( took 4 months to build). A fantastic model with some very nice detail and at the incredible price of only £24.99 The only issues I had were with trying to close the fuselage at the wing roots. Masking and spraying around the floats was a bit of a challenge but being able to fit the wings afterwards was a great help. I've included some build shots as well.
    All comments welcome.

    Excellent Vaughan, very nicely done indeed.
    This really brings home the question of kit prices too. When Revell can turn out kits of this quality, as with their Ju88 and He111 in the same scale, and the He219, at realistic, affordable retail prices, it really does beg the question why some other manufacturers kits are priced ridiculously high, when the content is not particularly better, or more involved.
    I'd quite like to build the Arado, in a mini-diorama, if I had more display space available.

    Thanks for the comments Guys

    I'm with you on this one Terry, if Revell can do it why can't the other manufacturers!. The detail Revell manage to produce like the plug leads on the radial engine it's well worth the money. I'm looking forward to building the He 219 Uhu next year.(mind you the camo looks tricky)

    Wow. I have utmost respect for any model that looks that wonderful with macro shots. I know, because macro shots are brutally revealing and your model looks like you could zoom in another similar factor of magnification and still be impressed. Great work.

    Hi Vaughan,
    I went back to your thread because I'm starting painting upper surfaces on mine and I have a question: which shades did you choosed?
    Instruction say RLM 73 and RLM 72. I got these from Floquil (Polly Scale), the only brand I found avilable in arilics, but the two shades looks very, very similar but in your model some difference can be seen.
    Thanks in advance for your kind answer.
    Alberto

    Alberto sorry for the late reply I used RLM70 and 71 (modelair doesn't make RLM72)for the camo, the contrast is too great and not green enough. So I sprayed a very light dusting of highly diluted dark green over the wings(see image top one is slightly greener). It's a subtle change but I think it makes a difference. I hope this helps.

    Nice build Vaughan, great detail. Wouldn't mind building on in that scale myself someday.
