Arado Ar 196 Fixed Wing in wood

March 31, 2020 · in Aviation · · 7 · 1.8K

As the world is gripped by Covid 19, and India is under a 21 day lock down with extension possibilities high, it was the best time to finish the Arado Fixed wing recon plane. Trying to make it by looking at the different pictures of the plane available, hoping to get the proportions right. Still a lot of work on it, the cock pit i guess will be the most challenging bit. Any one who has done it on wood may please guide on the thickness of the wings and the cockpit.

The lock down has been extended for the forth time, cant remember the days now, well over 50 days by now. The work on Arado Ar 196 is almost completed, adding a cabinet to it-Top Loading.

The cabinet was occupying a lot of space. Made an open display gives the plane a feel of being airborne.
