v1.2 of “Building the Fly Arado Ar 234” Now Available!

I’m pleased to announced that we’ve just released Version 1.2 of our build guide, Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale, by Kent Karlsen. This update is actually only very minor, featuring a few tiny layout tweaks and adjustments. That’s it!

Being a digital publication means this kind of update is very easy to do, and we will continue to update all our books in this fashion any time it becomes appropriate or necessary.

This new update is free to download for anyone who has already purchased this book. If you have an account with us, simply log in and download a new copy of the book from Downloads section of your account. Otherwise, the download link contained in your original purchase notification email should still be valid.

If neither of these scenarios applies to you, and you’d still like to download your updated copy, create a customer account here on the website, and then contact me so that I can associate your purchase with your new account. Once that is done, you can log in and download it from your purchase history.

And of course, if you haven’t purchased Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale at all yet, you’re more than welcome to do so! And what’s more, we’ve temporarily discounted the purchase price from 15 Australian dollars to 12! This price will be valid for 7 days from today, before returning to its original price, so jump in for a bargain while you can!

Introducing Kent Karlsen!

We’re currently about half-way through the first draft of the new Arado Ar 234 book, so I thought it might be a good time to introduce the author himself: Kent Karlsen. Please check out Kent’s new author profile on our website:

Announcing “Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale”!

I’m pleased to announce that, after an 8-month hiatus, work has finally begun on our next title: Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale, by Kent Karlsen. Kent builds not one, but two examples of the Fly 1/32 Ar 234 kit, turning one into the V6 4-engine prototype, and the other into a fantastic Ar 234B-2 maintenance diorama.

Mechanics and ground crew are busy at work in Kent Karlsen’s terrific Ar 234B-2 maintenance diorama.

The book’s bonus build sees Kent replace the kit’s Jumo engines with BMW 003 units, before adding an additional pair of BMW engines to produce the V6 prototype.

Kent’s terrific Ar 234A V6 conversion of the Fly kit, complete with Kettenkrad from Zoukei-Mura.

The book will detail how Kent tackled both of these builds, including all the aftermarket products used. Speaking of which, there will be our usual appendices that list all of the aftermarket products available, along with decals, paint masks, and relevant reference books.

Building the Fly Arado Ar 234 in 1/32 Scale is due for release some time in late Q2 or early Q3 2020 as an eBook only. Check back here regularly or subscribe to our blog for updates, sample pages, and a definitive release date!
