As this German bomber project was never realised, I intend to devise my own colour scheme, based around my interpretation of what I believe would be suitable for such an aircraft in operation.
* Night Raids across the Atlantic at High Altitude, above fighter operating ceiling.
* Based in France or Spain to increase its cross-Atlantic penetration.
So, this would require low visibility in the air, and on the ground. this space!!!

There's some comments in the (now attached) photo-album, that I've been diverted and distracted during the remainder of 2013 - mainly due to work (sigh).
I'm definitely going to be adding LEDs and Fibre-Optics (now waiting on the filaments to arrive), but have a problem with getting power to the whole show.
After many trials I have finally found the answer - the Bedford QLD & QLT truck set - there's enough room in the back of the fully covered truck to contain a 9volt battery, so the truck will become part of the diorama (my first diorama), with a "chunky" fuel pipe between the truck & Arado.
Before I found the Bedford I was going to modify the "German Fuel Truck & Schwimmwagen", but felt that the necessary mods would have been beyond me. With the Bedford, it will be much easier (I hope).
So I'm 1/76 Truck building for a little while!
