Italeri 1/48 scale
Arado Ar 196 A-5
by Antoine Huyghe
Hobby Boss' 1/32 Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop is available online from Squadron
This is Italeri's 1/48 Arado 196, built essentially out of the box except for the dual-barrel MG81Z (Eduard) specific to the A-5 version, the usual hand-made seat belts (wine bottle collar) and other details.
The top RLM73 comes from the Real Color range, which is quite pleasant to work with except for the smell, and maybe more fragile than other brands.
The antenna cable was made using Rig That Thing from Uschi which I strongly recommend despite being pricy, it is easy to use and gives flawless results.
