  2. This is my second entry. I was wondering why no one has entered with this yet...? Very good model, easy to build.... hmm, strange.... So I will fill this gap. I started yesterday and this is what I build.... Begun with undersides.... I use the photo etched parts from an expert box. Becouse it is the variant which you should put the main gear on place before gluing the wing together, I manage to paint the underside of the wing before gluing. I think it could be a good idea not to fight with masking weel bays with prot
  3. Hello all, let me present a recent builds of Arma Hobby´s Hurricanes. The first one is a Hurricane in Portugal colours and it was really a pleasant OOB build. The second one is a most successful Hurricane of 310 Czechoslovak squadron during the BoB with 6 kills claimed by several pilots. The kit is also a part of small group build with my friends dedicated to Bob adversary. I hope you like it. If you are interested in a bit more details and photos, I would appreciate your visit there on my blog http://72insight.com/en/hawker-hurricane-mk-i-and-mk-iic-1-72-arma-hobby/ Here on the blog

Christopher McQuarrie) Hope is the only good god present among men The rest abandoned us and went to Olympus. -- Theognis, Fr. 1135-6 Athenians: Hope, danger's comforter, may be indulged in by those who have abundant resources, if not without loss at all events without ruin; but its nature is to be extravagant, and those who go so far as to put their all upon the venture see it in its true colours only when they are ruined; but so long as the discovery would en
  7. I have been eagerly anticipating the Arma Hobby Hurricane since it was announced and have done a combined order with a friend of mine to get an expert kit and some overtrees. I also stocked up on Hurricne I decals as now this kit has been released, I can now do all the Hurricanes I ever wanted to. Unfortunately the Hurricanes were delivered to my friends house the day after I went up to see him and haven’t had the chance to revisit him so I did the only logical thing. I ordered another one! This arrived on Monday and it went straight to the top of the stack. Hopefully I can get it built for th
  8. Trying something new here. "Here we will stand and fight; there will be no further withdrawal. I have ordered that all plans and instructions dealing with further withdrawal are to be burnt, and at once. We will stand and fight here. "If we can’t stay here alive, then let us stay here dead." -- Lieutenant General Bernard Law Montgomery, GOC 8th Army, 13 August 1942 As I said above, I'm building two Arma Hurricanes; the "old" MkI kit, and their new MkIIc, which is supposed to be excellent. The latter aircraft was the mount of Cana
  9. Hello, uff, second model finished this year - maybe next year will be better, who knows. Two models are very close to finish, so maybe I will beat the record. I think that it's not the last "four leaf clover" in glass-case - but at first, I need to find TBM-1C kit in 1/72.
  10. Here's my sixth completion of 2020, the Arma Hobby Yak-1b from the Expert boxing: Representing No.2 of 148 IAP, flown by Ltn. Mikhail Shkomplektov, an unfortunate pilot who mistakenly landed at the Luftwaffe airfield at Anapa on 11 May 1943. You've got to feel for him, I've no idea of his eventual fate but it could well have proved fatal one way or another. I built it out of the box with the exception of the addition of a set of QuickBoost resin exhausts designed for the kit - I didn't intend
  11. Good day, I would like to begin this topic with my sincere gratitude towards fellow Britmodeller virtuoso Roman Schilhart. It was Roman and his generosity that made this possible. A special THANK YOU to Roman!!!!!!!! Here is the Arma Hobby Yak-1. Highlights of the kit are as follows.............. 1. Paints used ( all acrylics ) A. Mission Models white B. Vallejo AMT-7 light blue C. Vallejo A-28M Greyish Blue D. Mission Models black, Tamiya, metallic gray, Tamiya Gun Metal. 2. Weathered using the hair spray method, cha
  12. Hello and thank you very much for joining this fantastic forum. Very briefly something about me before I come to the rollout: I am publisher of ZigarrenZone (cigar Blog in German language) and the online magazine FlashCigar. After a break of about 8 years in model making I now find from time to time some time for model making. Sorry for my English My model presented here is the FM-2 Wildcat, 1/72 from Arma Hobby. It is a great kit. I mounted the windshield upside down. I made the clouds from absorbent cotton, fixed them with hairspray and painted them with th

  14. Just a quick update to say that we are still here and still trading (well just about!). Sales have taken a dramatic slump since lockdown was eased but we're just about limping along, still sending out what orders we have as quickly as ever and everything is still discounted. We've got a new credit/debit card processing option on our website by Stripe, for those who can't or won't use Paypal. You can still of course use Paypal, send a bank transfer or request an invoice (to be paid by card). We've recently got most of the ICM 1/48 German Bombers in stock plus the latest
  15. Hello all. Just to break an increasing habit of mine, I decided to build a 'new' kit. I had the Arma Hobby Hurricane MkI in stock for a year or so, and it was time to build it, especially as I have read and seen so many good things about this kit. I had the simple boxing with just plastic parts, transfer, and a masking template printed on the instructions. Well, what can I say? It was an absolute delight to look at when I unpacked it, the instructions were pretty good (I do not think I got anything in the wrong place or upside down), there was very little in the way of flash, seam lines or sin
  16. Hello everybody In full knowledge that there are plenty of these Arma 1:72 Hurricanes milling about I wanted to add my own humble contribution. Its from the Mk. 1 Expert Set in the kit scheme of Josef Frantisek of 303 Squadron. I finished it last week and am posting now because we are at the 80th Anniversary of the formal establishment of 303 Squadron and completely co-incidentally, as I was applying the last touches, the Historic Aircraft Collection were kind enough to also reveal the public certification flight of a 1:1 scale edition ;-) from Duxford. In
  17. Some nice topics already in this GB, but sadly nothing Russian yet The new Arma Hobby Yak-1 fits the bill nicely as one scheme in the kit is from "Operation Berlin" 1945. I am talking about the Yakovlev Yak-1b from the 2nd Squadron, 1st Fighter Regiment "City of Warsaw" apparently flown by Sgt Patryk O'Brien! Looks like a very nice kit with some very delicate castings. So will be interesting to see how it builds. There is a bit of confusing information on white 13 which was donated by Professor Wolf Messinga which is the reason for the inscripti
  18. I'll be honest. I didn't know who Bob Kershaw was until I bought the kit. For those of you who may be in a similar boat, here's his story : The Arma Hobby Hurricane Mk.1 Expert Set came with the markings for Bob Kershaw's Hurricane, and I couldn't resist the temptation. What can I say? It's a Hurricane by Arma Hobby - Great kit and a very enjoyable building experience. Now I'm desperately trying to avoid buying the Arma Hobby Yak1b ! Thanks for looking. Time to head back.
  19. Just spotted the pre-order page for Arma Hobby's FAA Wildcat VI kits. https://www.armahobby.com/70032-wildcat-mk-vi-model-kit.html Decals include EDSG/DSG, and BPF Blue versions, once again combo offer for extra sprues. Arma is on a roll lately
  20. Question for those more knowledgeable on the Hurricane. I have the Arma Hobby Mk.IIC kit, my cat managed to get his chompers into the wing, so instead of wasting the whole thing, I thought I'd make a Mk.IIB using the Arma Hobby Mk.I kit. My question is, is this a simple matter of just swapping out the fuselages and using the 4 spoke wheels? On a somewhat related note, did all Mk.I Hurricanes (metal wing) use the 5 spoke wheel? or did they later on start using the 4 spoked wheel? If so, any idea as to roughly when that transition would have happened? Many thanks in ad
  21. Hello, Latest addition to my "done and dusted" list: PZL P.11c. Arma Hobby expert kit, painted with Vallejo Model Air, decals from spare box. Model represents one of the interned Polish airplanes that were pressed into service (Aeronautica Regala Romana – Romanian Royal Air Force) alongside locally produced P.11f, used at the beginning of the eastern campaign (summer 1941) and latter transfered to training duties. Comments are welcomed.
  22. Very nice new kit from Polish Arma Hobby company. Easily the best Hurricane kit in the scale. No filler needed if you take some care preparing the parts for gluing. The only shortcoming is clear parts that are a bit on the thick side. I've managed to spoil the original LK-A letters so these on the model are from quite old Legato kit. And I decided to do almost no weathering as I like this livery clean. Thanks for viewing!
  23. Hello! I've at last joined the Arma Hobby Hurricane gang, and enjoyed making this so much I've already ordered another kit to make their MkI! I decided to go for Stewart "Bomb" Finney's steed "Oops", he seems to have been quite an entertaining character and there are some cracking interviews with him on Youtube. I particularly enjoyed the anecdote about the wickerwork airfield... So the SAAF flying MkI Hurricanes eagerly awaited delivery of their MkIIc planes with four Hispano cannon installed, and must have thought it was a right swiz when they arrived with the outer two cannon mi
  24. Completed this afternoon. Excellent but it's a warning that limited run kits, no matter how much recommended, are not HaseTamiya in quality of moulding. The parts did not glide effortlessly glide together and all had to be prepared beforehand. Painted with Humbrol Hu155 Olive Drab and Hu248(?) RLM76 Decals were very good but no stencils.I cocked up the fuselage number but it's hardly discernible (and it's on the opposite side) First posting after years of lurking on the site. I've spent a long time trying to post this. I'll post more photos hopefully in the next few min
  25. Hurricane Mk.IIc (Expert Set) 70035 1:72 Arma Hobby Although somewhat less glamorous than the Supermarine Spitfire, it was the Hawker Hurricane that proved to be the backbone of the UK's air defences during the summer of 1940. Designed in 1935, the Hurricane was relatively advanced compared to other fighters in service at that point. It featured a fully enclosed cockpit, retractable undercarriage, eight .303 inch machine guns, a powerful liquid-cooled V12 engine and, most importantly, a cantilever monoplane. Despite its modern appearance, the design an
