Hunt down enemy warships with this Kriegsmarine favorite.
Highly effective in the air and on water, the Arado Ar 196 seaplane entered service with the German Navy in 1939.
It was mostly used for patrol and reconnaissance missions, but the Ar 196 was often employed to track down enemy warships as well. When pursuing submarines, small bombs were placed underneath the Ar 196’s wings.
Once production had ceased in 1944, 541 aircraft were built in all. Kit features surface details with incised engravings, textured imitation materials, a detailed BMW® 132K engine, a realistic cockpit and two floats.
