  5. HI Guys here is one of my latest builds it is the Revell 1/32 Arado 196B with as much extra details as possible.I have used the Big Ed set , HGW cockpit set, quickest exhaust Ali Catz canopy and Master Barrels. painted in Gunze Mr colour and Aqueous paints finished for publication in a up coming book. I have photographed her with the original 196-a1 which was straight from the box and built in 2010.

  6. Hi Guys here is my latest which is built from a test shot of the kit which should appear soon from HK models. I had no decals or instructions to begin with but have added Airscale instrument decals and an MDC Sutton Harness.

I have only published one image as this is for a magazine Model Airplane International . Hope that you like here? John

Hi Guys just finished today in under 4 weeks straight from the box. i had the pleasure of building this kit before it is on general release and I have to say i thoroughly enjoyed this kit from start to finish. She will be the subject of a build review in a forthcoming issue of Model Airplane International. This is the reason for only one image as otherwise anyone buying the magazine will feel cheated seeing the same images as here! Hope that you like her? John

  14. Just be careful with the instrument panel and where it fits it will foul the canopy so move it back a little, also take your time to align the side fuselage panels and everything will work out. John

  18. Hi Terry the seat came with a set of etched seat belts in the kit. It builds easily but beware of a couple of areas which need attention the nose to rear fuselage and the intakes being the most note worthy. Parts fit on the whole is good , there were a couple of issues listed above. The decals are fine although they are all very close on the sheet they worked fine with MR Mark softener.

  22. The blades have drooped under their own weight and I had four failures of the rotor head so i am reluctant to start to bend it too much the links are very weak. Progress pictures will be in the magazine article when published. The windows fit ok but there is a little slack around a couple the biggest problem was the windscreen which was fouled by the instrument panel and sat just slightly high on one side. Decals worked well although the biggest problem Ih had was due to them being so think HI Azor I simply dragged a scalpel blade over the surface and made multiple passes parallel to t
