    Alex...? Who? Basketball

    Anyway...Arado 196 is my favorite floatplane also. I have recently bought Italeri's 1/48 one for OOB build. I've got a lot of stuff for this.

    I have no empty space for new Revell's 1/32.

    Thanks Marco, Very Happy

    Finally you have provided me with the proof of what I have always suspected. The aircraft was infact lifted up to the top of the hanger, via a platform lift. That is why the sides of the hanger are equipped with a circular pillar - (visible in the picture), which housed the square threaded pillar, which enabled the platform to be raised or lowered. cheers cheers cheers
