Two-Stage Mosquito announcement

9 posts in this topic

Special Hobby team have been preparing  completely new 1/72 Two-Stage Mosquito versions for almost two years now. This fact is well known here among Czech model making companies. The Mosquito project is really very complex one, we have been using measurements taken on a real Mosquito at the Brusells Air Museum. The project design has been prepared using our 3D CAD system and the kit parts will be injected into steel moulds in quality levels common for our latest efforts as were the Mirage F.1, Gnat, Fouga Magister or V2 kits.

Looks like Special Hobby are going to do the full set of two stage Mossies.  Personally, it's just the bomber/PR ones that interest me, which is less bad news for my wallet.

Whilst it's the NF versions which interest me the most, I'm very pleased to see the bomber/PR versions too, I will be buying both most definitely!

 

If they mould the radome in clear plastic that will be brilliant as that would permit NF.30 through 36 (just paint over it for an NF.XXX/30), I'm very pleased to see the later flame damping exhaust shrouds, they always seem to be the bette noir of any attempt to do a late NF version.

 

It looks like they've made a decent effort with the two stage cowlings.

 

Really looking forward to this kit, I can see me buying at least a dozen of the various versions of this kit as long as they get it right!

 

This and the forthcoming Super Mystère are why they and Airfix are my manufacturers of choice - they're making subjects I want to model!

Ooooh! NF.15, Ooooh! Be still my racing heart. :) Did these have the smaller wheels too or was that only the Sea Mosquito?

The NF. 15 has smaller wheels Steve, you're right :thumbsup2: . I'm doing one with a very old (and now 'collector' expensive) Paragon set at the moment.

This could be a very big money spinner for Special Hobby. I was cobbling together a the double stage NF. 15 right now using all sorts of bits (based on a Matchbox kit)... Then found out Arma Hobby have just brought out engines that can be used with the Tamiya kits. I might give that a whirl too but now I find that this is happening!;

All of the faff is a bit tiresome compared to having off the shelf kits at my old age :clif:  :D.

I buy more Special Hobby/Azur/MPM/Frrom than anything else. It's been that way for a long time - great subjects and great customer service.

This is really good news (but probably not for my wallet or Mrs. T :unsure:).

Wondering what I can do with my 3 sets of Paragon engines now. :unsure: . I'm sure I can think of something.  :)

Just use them on the Tamiya kit?  If they have an (incorrect) square panel just aft of the exhausts, use them on a Hasegawa kit, as those are the originals Neil did in '99 and intended for that kit - it was before Tamiya released theirs.
