  1. 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
  2. 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
  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

  5. Source: https://www.facebook.com/ArmaHobby/posts/3462056447158021 Considering it'll be most probably a WWII period a/c and in 1/72nd this will be uninteresting to me... My (Polish) wishes - 1/48th plastic kits from: TS-8 Bies, TS-11 Iskra & PZL-130 Orlik. V.P.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Hello good people, Here are a few pictures of my just-completed 1:72 Sea Hurricane MK Ia by Arma Hobby. Its a pretty nice kit, well detailed, and pretty forgiving to build. I built mine to represent a machine from Royal Navy's training squadron No. 760, stationed at Yeovilton, England in early 1942. I'm not entirely sure if I'm correct, but I believe no. 760 was the unit where pilots trained for hurricat duty. Hurricats were hurricanes modified for catapult launch from modified transport ships sailing in the North Atlantic convoys. In case of air attack or snooping from FW Condors, a hur
  20. Hi all Been working on this. It is a model of V7421/W-2D from 760 Squadron FAA, Naval Air Fighter School, RNAS Yeovilton, Summer 1942. This is a lovely Kit and unusual with the replacement Cowling in Dark Green/Dark Earth with the Temperate Sea Scheme. The model is built OOB apart from the Seatbelts and aerial wire. I have also used laser glaze on the fuselage spine light and the light on the rudder. Painted with Humbrol enamels and weathered with oil wash and powders. This was an enjoyable kit and the last two photos are of it with the recent build of an Airfix early Fabr
  21. Hi all - hope everyone is doing okay this weekend. I was able to get some bench time between working from home and looking after kids - so I was able to get this project over the line. Johnny Red was a comic character from the British War comic "Battle" which was published in the 70's and 80's - Johnny was a disgraced former RAF pilot who found himself in Russia during the war - fighting with his adopted squadron "The Falcons" against the ghastly Germans in his Hurricane Mk1. The story ran for many years until Battle went out of print in the early 80's. Comic book writer Garth Enn
  22. Here’s the Arma Hobby Hurricane Mk.I in markings of 238 Sqn at RAF Middle Wallop. This is a lovely kit, although I struggled a bit with the fit of the cockpit internal framing. Note that I have been purposely picking aircraft to model that don’t have standard Sky undersides.
  23. Yakovlev Yak-1B (Expert Set) 1:72 Arma Hobby Prior to the outbreak of WWII, the Yakovlev Design Bureau was best known for designing and building lightweight recreational and sporting aeroplanes. Starting with the Yak-2/Yak-4 light bomber, Yakovlev used this experience to create a sequence of successful, lightweight aircraft which used composite construction to reduce weight. The fighter aircraft produced during this period were largely compact and highly maneuverable. While the development of the new aircraft was not without difficulty, by the time Op
  24. Fokker E.V Lozenge (Limited Edition) 1:72 Arma Hobby The Fokker E.V was a German parasol-winged fighter which entered service during the final months of the First World War. The aircraft was delivered to Jasta 1, Jasta 24 and Jasta 36 in late July 1918. Leutnant Emil Rolf scored the first victory with the type on 17 August 1918, but was killed two days later when his aircraft's wing collapsed in flight. Following another similar failure, the wing failure was investigated and found to have been caused by poor construction techniques. Once remedied, deliveries
