Product Manual

The Arado Ar 196A-3 Seaplane model kit can be assembled in one of two configurations. It can be fully assembled to look like it would if prepared for flight, or modelers can follow many of the optional assembly instructions throughout the manual to build the model plane kit as it would have looked if sitting on a battleship like the Tirpitz. Some options include the choice of two propellers and how to position the wings. While the seaplane model kit can be assembled with the wings in standard flight position, they can also be folded back against the fuselage to conserve space on the battleship. Decals feature two finishing options. One is intended to look like the German Seaplane that was active in Kalamaki, Crete in January, 1943, while the other represents how one of the Arado Seaplanes would have looked aboard the German Battleship Tirpitz in the summer of 1943.

During assembly, modelers will notice that a static machine gun was mounted on the front of the plane, while the rear facing crew member had a moveable mounted machine gun. One bomb is affixed under each wing, so this two man sea plane was a dangerous threat over water. The hatch can fully enclose the cockpit or be left open, and the engine covers can be positioned in the up position to display the high level of detail Revell Germany put into this larger scale model plane kit. Skilled modelers looking for the highest degree of accuracy will want to add string to the supports between the pontoons and the fuselage and between the tailfin and the cockpit hatch. Once finished, the assembled Seaplane model kit can be displayed on the included stand.
