Arado Ar 234 B-2 - Fernaufklärer (Finished)

Recommended Posts

Oh my.  This keeps getting better and better with each post.  I love how it blended all together after the last wash. I think you should modify ONE more FLY kit into a 234 C and fulfill the Arado 234 stable Kent!  

 

Once again superb efforts going on here.

You have have a wonderfully well done assortment of models in your portfolio, Dude.

 

Sincerely,

Thanks Mark,

I've thought about that. I'm trying to  do dioramas and planes from different hemispheres with various environments.

New Guinea, Corsica, North Africa, Greenland, Northern France, Britain, Germany and Denmark of course.

Haven't really been to the Pacific, Africa or the US yet!  And almost nothing after 1945.

 

Cheers: Kent

You are a Wiz at this. The details of this build are out of sight!   There is much to like about this build.  Of those many things, I particularly like how each camouflage color is near the other in the value range.  Great show, Kent.

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mark

Thank you Mark. It was a 'monumental task' just to keep the parts together and not to loose any ;-)

No seriously, I'm also happy with how the camouflage turned out, I used cardboard templates for the 'splinter' to avoid any sharp edges and get the colors to blend even more.

In this photo of the one of the Arado's 'left behind' in the summer of 1945, you can only just make out the color shift.

Watching your scratch-building in progress is a treat, the detail painting eye-watering, and the overall finish somewhat overwhelming. Those cameras and their boxes however... :o
