Ok i'll start this one off, this one will be OOTB as planes arnt my thing & i know nothing about them, it's got wings an engine it fly's endex.

I may put outboards on the floats Nos the engine nice chrome exhaust and a grovey pearl paint job.

Apart from that OOTB.

Nice choice John. I have the little 1/72 kit. All I need is time and for this house to get itself finished!

Is an excellent choice John!

One day I see a weathered one, and was an amazing plane.

Good luck mate!

It's a great kit with some fantastic detail for the price I managed to pick one up from wonderland Models for £14.99( yet to build this one). There are two versions to build and a choice of folded or in flight position. Check out my build thread it might help you when you get started http:tongue-out3:/www.scale-models.co.uk/threads/revell-1-32-arado-196a-3.13912/.

These look great when built. Vaughan's is a great example - no pressure there then.

Okies then slow start on this one been on night shift for the last 5 day's so here we go.

To start with the floats, filled with 30g fishing lead 10g of car body filler, that should do it.

New floor, lucky guy. Are you getting someone to lay it for you or doing it yourself? The Arado engine looks great too, look forward to more updates soon,
