Product Description

WOW032 Arado 196

Our second aircraft was the workhorse of the Kriegsmarine, the Arado 196
(WOW032) which came about as a requirement to replace the lacklustre Heinkel
60. The Arado was loved by its pilots for its handling in the air and on the
water and was armed with 2 x 20mm cannons in the wing ports as well as a
rear firing machine gun, it could also be armed with 2 x 50kg bombs. Over
500 Arado 196 were built during the course of WW2, some versions being
exported to Finland, Bulgaria and Romania.
The Arado 196 was used as a shipboard reconnaissance aircraft from Germanys
capital ships and was also utilised by Naval land based units, in the
reconnaissance as well as the anti submarine role.  
Our aircraft comes in the markings of one of the aircraft employed on the
Bismarck prior to its destruction by the British fleet in 1941.
Limited to 15 in number and priced at $695 with 2 figures (CLUB016 &
LUFT017), this will also make a great addition to your collection. We are
expecting delivery of the Arado towards the end of this week possibly early
next week.
