Nice that the Arado 196 is in the list.

 

Looking forward to the new Revell kit.

 

But in what way was this plane involved during the BoB ?

 

If I'm correct they mostly operated from battleships.

hi Erwin,

i guess maybe one or two got involved (involuntarily i'm sure) with RAF fighters over the Channel or more likely somewhere in North Sea, so that way they would qualify...

 

as to dates, i believe the "official" dates are actually different from those posted above

from the RAF BoB site:

" the Battle fought over Britain between the 10th July and 31st October 1940"

 

it looks a very useful reference site

From what I can gather they were used on convoy, air-sea rescue and reconnaissance missions. Several Spitfire pilots put in claims for shooting down Ar 196's.

Channel front only?

So Dackelbauch Me-110s, Do's and Ju's attacking GB from Norway are not allowed to step in?

Ultimately the call is Dave's, but I think we're relaxed enough about it all to allow that. :BANGHEAD2:

If it was during the same time period it's BoB as far as I'm concerned...

Did not the Bristol Beaufighter (also available in 1:32) participate significantly in the Battle of Britain? Am I miss reading the list or is it not there?

Participant yes, significant participant? I am not sure. I doubt it as it went operational in Aug 1940
