Great start. Looking forward to the next batch. How is the kit fit etc. I've got this one and the MKI to get through it'd be good to know what awaits.

Regarding the screens, what part number are these on the Eduard instructions (will need also the specific PE set number, not the BIG Ed number)? Not sure what you are talking about, but I can take a look in my references.
22. June, 23:49
Andrea Morris
Thanks for your attention. ED32 681 #47+48. "It is worth noting that the rear cockpit seems to have been lined with sheet plywood or similar to stop the spent casings from the rear armament from finding their way into the workings of the aircraft. Check your references for confirmation if you can, and grab some thin styrene sheet cut to shape if you plan on replicating this." End quote. Hope this helps.

Ok, now I see. I looked through the Book: The Arado Ar 196 (by Richard A. Franks) to see if it has any info on this. I was unable to find anything, although it's a pretty detailed book and I only paged through it.

The Arado Ar 196 (Valiant Wings Publishing 7)
 


That said, this sounds like a later modification to the production machines based on service experience. The B series only existed as few prototypes and 6-10 pre-production machines before the A series was selected for full production (per the book, the D-OVMB marking in the kit are in fact of the V4 prototype, not a pre-production B machine). It's probably safe to leave those part off IMHO. The book has a build of the Revell kit by John Wilkes and he is not mentioning using them, nor are they visible in the cockpit WIP photo. Hope this helps.

I'm seeking advice from you competition guys. I'm looking to build, from my stash, something that both stimulates me and stands a chance of winning. I have reduced it down to three. Arado 196 (single float), IL2M3 Sturmovik and the Bf110 Dackelbauch???? All in 1/32 scale. Vote now 😀

@David I haven't forgotten your suggestion to build both. I have both boxes open near me. There is so much PE involved that going from one to the other is appealing, more gluing, less inhaling CA glue!!!

Rui Da Silva
I thought sniffing glue was part of the hobby's attraction 🤪

Thanks Gary but it's all sorted now. I've used Micro Kristal Klear for all the portholes as the kit parts are too thick and a bad fit.

@Christoph I was lucky that most of the canopy is not see-through, so I just glued (TET) it back together avoiding the actual transparent bits. After a fine sanding you won't notice it. @Gary compliment accepted 🙂

Interesting subject. I'm tuning in.

I love 'em: built the 72nd Italeri one...best camo schemes!, so tell us how the 48'er goes together?
27. August 2020, 13:36
Andrea Morris

@Andy The kit is fine with no real issues. If you have built a Trumpeter kit before then you know what to expect. I did end up with a 1mm gap in the nose, that turned out to be no fault of the kit, but a result of the Yahu instrument panel. I am also having a tussle with mounting the engines in their cowlings. I have put them to one side for now until I figure it out. The underside is painted, when it's fully cured I can get on with the camo on the upper surface. Should be done over the weekend. NB: Handle the canopy with GREAT CARE, it's fragile and I snapped mine whilst giving it a gentle polish!
28. August 2020, 12:15
Andy Ball
@Andrea: I wrote my comment before looking through your commentary and photos. I'm on the cusp of going 48 from 72, and want to know how certain subjects I like would perform in the larger scale. The Italeri kit wasn't without its issues too, I see you've coped well with your challenges on the Trumpeter (I've just done their Tupolev and it has few fit issues....but accuracy, hmmmm!)
