  1. Macchi MC 72 'Early Version' 1:72 SBS Model The Macchi MC72 was an experimental seaplane designed by Macchi in the 1930's. Originally Macchi made warplanes but later decided to move to racers and aiming to win Schneider Trophy. Sound familiar with another famous company? To this aim the company hired aircraft designer Mario Castoldi. A series of aircraft were built with the M39 winning the trophy in 1926 with a speed of 246mph. The company though failed to win again and from this MC 72 was designed. It was a streamlined aircraft with the radiators faired into the wings and pontoons. However due to engine problems in 1931 which would turn out ot be the last race. Despite this the aircraft did manage to set a world speed record of 440.7mph which remains as the record to this day for a piston engined seaplane. This world record aircraft survives in the Italian Air Force Museum. The Kit The kit from SBS is a full resin kit, with resin clear parts, photo-etch and decals. The resin is very well moulded with no problems. The kit will require some 0.3mm steel rod, and some 0.3mm brass rod to complete which is not offered in the kit (but separately from SBS if you want). Construction starts with the basic cockpit. The seat, stick, rudder pedals and a few other control are added. The instrument panel is a sandwich of PE and film. Once the cockpit is in the main fuselage can be closed up, and the resin front screen added. The tail and rudder are then added followed by the tail planes and main wings. The main wings are each braced with two 0.3mm brass wires. The prop can then be assembled and added. Next up the floats are added. Each float has two resin legs. The floats are braced each side with three 0.3mm steel wires on the outboard side, one on the inside and two wires to the each other. Decals The decals are sparse but well printed in house and should pose no problems. Conclusion This is a fairly simple little kit, much like the real aircraft. If should pose no problems to a competent modeller and maybe a good starter into resin models. Highly recomended. Review sample courtesy of Insert other media
  2. Caudron C.600 Aiglon Hungary & Germany 1:72 SBS Model The C.600 was designed by Marcel Riffard in the early 1930s when he took over the design department at Coudron following their merger with Renault. The aircraft was a low wing cantilever monoplane with tandem cockpits very similar to the Miles Magister. The type proved popular with civilian pilots and 178 of the standard version with a Renault 4Pgi Bengali Junior engine were built. With the outbreak of WWII many aircraft were requisistioned by the French Govt. Some of these would later find their way into Germany use. 6 were operated by the Royal Hungarian Air Force. The Kit The kit from SBS is a full resin kit, with resin clear parts, photo-etch and decals. The decals in this kit are for Hungarian and German service, other boxing are available with Civilian and Spanish Civil War decals. Construction starts in the cockpit shockingly enough. The instrument panels made up from resin, film and PE parts are put into the right fuselage. The seats and control columns, and other controls are added to the cockpit, PE seatbelts are provided for the seats. Once all the cockpit parts are in the fuselage can be closed up and the choice of nose depending on variant is added. The single part main wings and tailplanes are added, again the rugger and vertical fin depend on the type bring modelled. The wheels, spats and exhausts are added. Again the exhaust is dependant on type. Decals Two schemes are provided. One of the machines operated by the Royal Hungarian Air Force, and a captured German machine. Decals are in house by SBS and look in register, colour dense and should pose not problems. Conclusion This is a fairly simple little kit, much like the real aircraft. If should pose no problems to a competent modeller and maybe a good starter into resin models. Highly recomended. Review sample courtesy of Insert other media

  8. 39M Csaba wheel set (Firestone) for Hobbyboss kit 1:35 S.B.S Model With the prominent wheels on an Armoured car sometime the supplied wheels can be lacking. In most cases resin does a better job than kit plastic or rubber. This set from SBS are exquisitely cast with the wheels & hubs as separate parts. These should enhance your Hobby Boss kit, Review sample courtesy of
  9. EXPAL BRP-250 Bomb (48049) 1:48 SBS Model Our friends at SBS have been quiet this last year due to various reasons, but they were present and Scale ModelWorld and in good spirits, with some new products, this being one of them. The BRP-250 bomb was widely hung from Spanish aircraft during the Cold War, as well as from Argentinian and other Allied nations. They are free-fall bombs that are fin stabilised by a quartet to the rear of the streamlined body, and fitted with a short delayed fuse at the front. They are often seen loaded on Mirage 5, A-4 Skyhawk, Mirage F.1 and Super Etendards wearing various colour schemes. This set contains two of the bombs, mastered by Antarki Models from Peru, and as well as the resin bomb bodies, there is also a small fret of Photo-Etch (PE) brass containing the fins for the rear. The bombs are attached to a single moulding stub at the rear, which is flat on the real thing, so shouldn't be too hard to remove and clean up. The fins fit into grooves down the side of the body, and must be aligned by eye, which isn't difficult in the real-world from experience. Detail on the bomb is excellent, having recessed panel lines and a nicely rendered fuse, which should look good under a coat of paint. Check your references for the correct colours and banding, as this different between operators and time periods. Available soon from all good model shops. Review sample courtesy of

  14. Macchi 202 & 205 Cockpit Set (for Hasegawa) 1:48 SBS Model The MC.202 & 205 were of the same design lineage, and consequentially had very similar cockpit, with the main differences being the power plant and armaments. SBS have crafted these two very similar cockpits in a mixed media kit that contains resin, Photo-Etch (PE) and clear acetate film. The sets are different enough to warrant separate boxings, so make sure you pick up the right one. They both arrive in SBS's nice little card box, with a picture of the set on the front. Inside is a bag of resin parts, a separate card-backed bag for the PE and acetate, plus a single sheet of instructions, which are well drawn, clear, and have painting call-outs that are so often missing from aftermarket sets. C.202 Folgore The main differences are in the instrument panel, with the rest of construction common between them. The kit cockpit is designed with inserts for the sidewalls, and the resin replacements for these are much more detailed, and are improved further by the addition of some PE levers and trim-wheel. The cockpit floor is very finely engraved with floor panelling, and has a delicate webwork of supports for the seat, all moulded as a single part, with flash to be cut away with a sharp blade. The curved rudder rests are added from PE parts, utilising the kit rudder pegs, and a new resin control column. The seat is also resin with moulded in belts, while the headrest and armour are PE, with additional PE belt-tops that join to the resin stubs at the top of the seat back. A rear-view mirror is fitted to the top of the windscreen hoop to replace the thicker kit part. C.205 Folgore The instrument panel on both sets is a multi-layered assembly, which is happily shown on the instructions in both an exploded-diagram, and in a completed state, so you can check your work. Using three layers of film and three PE panels that attach to the resin back-plate, you also add a kit part, PE and film rendition of the gun-sight. Where the two sets differ is in the central lower panel, which is larger on the 202, and also has an extended lower panel to the right of the pilot's knees. The additional levers that are added to the panel are identical, with just one extra on the central panel of the 202. Painting As mentioned above, there is a colour diagram at the end of the instructions, using generic names or FS numbers for the correct colours, and if you paint the backs of the film panels white before construction, you will be able to see the faces of the pre-printed dial through the PE panel. Conclusion SBS have impressed us greatly since we became aware of their products, and these sets are well up to muster, correcting what I consider to be a weakness of a lot of Hasegawa kits when measured against modern standards. The resin is well cast, casting blocks sensibly placed, and the PE of a very high quality. Add the clear, concise instructions into the mix, and you have a top line product that is difficult not to like. It's also good to know that your hard-earned cash will be going to a thoroughly nice, cheerful gent. Very highly recommended.

  15. Arado 234 Landing Gear Bay Set (48026 for Hasegawa/Revell) 1:48 SBS Model The Hasegawa kit is a lovely piece of plastic engineering, but getting on a little now, and expectations of detail levels have increased since then, and the main gear bays looks a little two dimensional. This is one of the first samples we've received from Hungarian company SBS Model, and we've been impressed by both the quality of the products, as well as the variety already in their catalogue. Arriving in a nicely appointed card box with fully printed exterior, the box contains a bag of resin parts, a bag of Photo-Etch (PE) parts, and a printed instruction sheet. This set replaces the kit parts with resin inserts that improve the detail markedly, requiring just the removal of the pouring blocks with a razor saw or motor tool. There are also a pair of PE parts on a small fret that attach to the inner lip of the bay before the resin is added, which completes the job. There are plenty of wires and unions moulded in, plus rib-work to the rear, as well as a plethora of oval inspection panels, which should look great under a coat of paint. In addition, there are a pair of super looking parachute housings for the tips of the RATO units that were carried under each wing on pylons to get this beast into the air in good order. To fit these, you need to remove the pointed area of the RATO bottle so that the 'chute can fit flush with the lip, and the retaining straps should then link to the rim to give a much more realistic look to the exposed fabric of the 'chute. Conclusion Nicely detailed, easy to install and well made. There's a lot to like about these simple updates from SBS. Highly recommended to any fans of the Hasegawa Blitz (me included).
