    I just finished my Revell Arado Ar 196A-3 floatplane in 1/32 scale I decided to try a water dio with it. I put a small pager motor in it to spin the prop the water is painted aluminum foil. The base is an up side down picture frame with the battery compartment under the water.

    Thank you for your comments every one, I have to say that I appreciate what you say in this forum more than any other because you all are as into WWII military aircraft as I am.
    Thanks again
