Arado Ar 68 E (Roden 1/48)
And this is my first biplane model kit so far. The main purpose of this build was rigging.
Despite that fact, that this kit was released in 2019, it’s a standard Roden kit, but now also overpriced in addition to other issues. Decals are no good, should be replaced (I was cutting masks for everything), clear part is horrible (thick and blurry), flashes everywhere, sink marks, rough surface. But the overall fit is quite good.
I was using the decal of Eduard’s Bf 109E for the control panel tools, seat belts for Bf 109C, windscreen is made of foil. Brass MG17 barrels would be a good addition to this kit as well.
I didn’t do any type of marbling/black basing/pre-shading with this build, instead I’ve put a flat layer of RLM02 paint, and all the rest was done with oils.
Thanks for watching!
