Default Arado 196

Just completed this Italeri 1/48 Arado 196, based at Crete, 1942.

The cowling is a resin replacement as the kit cowl had a prominent mould seam right through the valve-cover blisters. The machine gun is also a replacement.

Nice job Mike, and it's always good to have spare bits and pieces at hand.
