Fly Models' 1/32 scale
Arado Ar 234 B
by Osvaldo Viggiani
Here I send you photos of my Arado 234, Fly's debut kit in 1/32 scale. Needless to say, this kit is of a very basic configuration in what it presents in details, but with a little work you can reach a good final result.
The kit features smooth surfaces with very few rivets, all the panels are in low relief and have some very good resin parts as well as a photo-etched plate, the transparencies really leave a lot to be desired since it is the most attractive of this machine, I will detail the work I do in the kit.
Starting with the cockpit, only use the resin base to which I modify and detail everything in scratch, dome frame, wooden dashboard as well as all cables and pipes that you can see, the transparencies were thermoformed and all the external fastening screws were reproduced, the access door has movement as well as the pedal to access, with respect to the wings it was cut off n the flaps and articulated for their movement the ailerons were only structurally detailed.
The engines are the Jumo 004 of the Me 262 from Trumpeter adapted and detailed with scratch. The doors of the gondolas were made of aluminum and also moveable. The ventral pump support was also modified and detailed in its entirety.
Passing to the tail group, both stabilizers and rudder for its movement were detailed and articulated.
The rivets in 0.20 mm were reproduced on the entire surface of the kit one by one.
The painting scheme that I chose is based on a very good color photo from the Monarch book by Monogram Publications where colors 71 and 81 are clearly seen, did not carry out much wear or weathering since these machines were very polished and waxed well.
I hope you enjoy it. Many greetings!
