In the spring of 1940, the German Reichsluftfahrtministerium's (RLM) Technical Office asked the Arado company at Brandenburg/Havel to undertake the design of a bomber/photographic reconnaissance aircraft to be powered by the new turbojet engines under development at Junkers and BMW. No performance details were specified, except that the aircraft should be capable of covering Britain as far north as the naval base at Scapa Flow. The design work at Arado resulted in the first design E370 (Erprobung). On basis of this design the first prototype Arado Ar 234 A - V1 (Versuchsobject) was constructe
So I'm in with the Fly kit of the Arado. One of the kit marking options is for one in RAE markings. As luck would have it, I hava a Cutting Edge decal sheet in the stash which has the markings for the aircraft flown by then Lt Cmdr Brown. Since the roundels and fin flash are already in the kit for a slightly different version, I just needed the yellow P emblem so the plan is to use one from the Meng Me 163 kit. That about covers it for now. I'll probably start working on it later this week. Carl
