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.
