First completed Arado

The first model from the “Grand Arado project of 2022” has now been completed! It is an Arado Ar 96B-7, built from the old Heller 1/72nd scale kit. The model depicts a captured aircraft marked “AIR MIN 120” serving with the No.435 DSRU of RAF in Germany in December 1945. The history of the aircraft is documented in the book “War Prizes” (p.120; see our previous blog post for a list of reference sources) as well as Mark I Publications’ book “Arado Ar 96 colours & markings”.

Full write-up of the project, as usual, is on our Web site.
