From the Magazine:- A One-Fifth Scale Model of WWII Germany’s Standard Advanced Trainer. Arado 96B by David Andersen.
Arado was the only German aircraft manufacturer to refuse to cooperate with the Nazis. Consequently, it was the only company to be nationalized by the Reich. The AR 96 was a technically advanced aircraft when it first flew in 1938. For comparison, the British production fighter at the time was an open-cockpit biplane, By far the most important advanced trainer in the Luftwaffe, it was adopted in 1940 as the standard training aircraft. Distinguishing features were the narrow nose and the typical tall Arado fin and rudder. The main production variant featured the Argus 465 hp inverted V12 engine and a single MG 17 gun in the cowl. A later version added underwing bomb racks.
