  1. I really shouldn't be doing this....but as I have just finished a big project at work I am hopeful I might get some bench time over the next month or so. If that is correct then I have an outside chance of actually completing a GB. Anyway having looked through the stash this is one of the few kits that qualifies. I have never made a Special Hobby kit before but I am aware of the short run nature of the product. Will see how I get one. As always all comments welcome. Cheers Dave

  6. Hi all, this was my entry to the Sharkmouths groupbuild, the build thread is here: I very rarely build in this scale but this was one of the nicest kits I've ever used. The fit, detail and decals were all excellent and I couldn't recommend it more. This is also the third helicopter I've built this year, they're great subjects! All the best, Alan

  8. Seems I've done nothing but jets for a while with the Warthog, Harrier and TSR 2 so I decided to make one of the kits I was fortunate to receive for being another year older. I haven't done a rotary wings since coming back to modelling and after seeing Alain P's excellent Cobra during the Sharkmouth BG I decided on that kit. So the kit, it looks very nice and well made. Decals nicely printed and of course tiny stencils to apply. I will be doing either scheme A Thors Hammer or B Cindy Ann.

  10. Dear all, Please find below some images of my recently finished Special Hobby Vultee V1A in the colours of American Airlines. The build in itself went pretty smooth, but close to the finish line I wanted to respray the anti-glare panel and with the masking tape pulled off part of the decals... Special Hobby wasn't able to supply a replacement, but Arctic Decals came to the rescue. Of course Mika from Arctic also corrected some of the errors in the decal sheet, so 'kiitos' (thank you in Finnish) to Mika. On to the pictures! Peter

  13. This summer has played h**l with my model building and group build participation. Thank God, the summer in here seems to be over very soon and we're heading towards a season more suitable for this hobby . Nuff said, not to be started before some more urgent builds are done, as their GB:s end sooner, but here's my trio of the quite delicious looking Special Hobby Kittyhawks and a Warhawk: I plan to build them out of the box, decorating each with the North African decal options supplied in the kits. For a while, this is just a placeholder... V-P
  14. After much wrestling with plastic and filler, and a build that felt, at times, like it was never going to end, I am finally able to post up a few pics of my Barracuda - another Fleet Air Arm favourite of mine with its strange looks and dubious performance. This is the "Hi Tech" boxing of the Special Hobby kit, with some extra bits from the Brengun (formerly Griffon) set. The build followed a fairly typical course for a Special Hobby kit, in that the interior bulkheads were all a little too wide and lots of dry fitting was needed before committing to glue. The biggest difficulty I encountered was the fit of the port wing. From above it was raked forward at more of an angle than the starboard wing, and from ahead it was a mm or two lower. A plasticard shim, lots of filler and round after round of sanding and smoothing eventually resulted in wings that looked symmetrical - to me at least... I didn't like the look of the kit spinner so blunted one from a Seafire XV and used that instead. For the markings I decided to go with a post war scheme as I think it suits the aircraft and I haven't seen this kit in the EDSG over Sky before. The upper surfaces should, I think, be quite liberally festooned with various white stencil markings that I didn't have.... I ran out of steam a bit towards the end of this one - this shows in the wingtip nav lights which are only painted, and let the finished model down a bit; the underside is a bit too clean and the prop should probably be a bit weathered too... The markings are intended to show a machine from 815 NAS at Eglinton. And so to the pictures, and thanks for looking, Nick.
  15. Special Hobby is to release early 2016 a variant from the Azur's Vautour kit (https://www.scalemates.com/products/reviews.php?scale=1%3A72&topic=SNCASO+SO-4050+Vautour), a 1/72nd SNCASO SO.4050 Vautour IIN "Cyrano radar" - ref.SH72333 Source: http://www.mpmkits.net/2015/12/novinky-special-hobby-prvni-mesice-roku.html Box art The same in 1/48th...

    RNZAF P-40 colours

    I've got myself the new Special Hobby 1/72 Kittyhawk Mk III (P-40K) and I want to check the colours for the RNZAF one on the box art. The instructions say Foliage Green on top and Grey-Green (I think they mean RAF Sky Type S) underneath. Would this be correct? The Special Hobby P-40 kits are brilliant btw, everyone should make one! thanks Mike
  19. This was started in the Trainers GB along with three others including another mixed media target tug. Obviously a bit too ambitious, so once the GB was finished I proceeded with this in a leisurely manner. It was a slightly complex build with resin bits all over the place, a vac form canopy. With loads of panels to mask. And of course the black and yellow stripes on the underside. And a lost aerial! However it's now complete and here it is for inspection. The build can be found here. Special Hobby kit completed as a TT MkIV of 733 NAS based at Trincomalee in 1944. Brush painted with Xtracrylix for the upperworks and Citadel yellow and Revell black for the underside.
  20. My second contribution, the Special Hobby Vultee Vengeance in its target tug version. The plastic parts parts are relatively simple and they're nicely moulded although the detail is soft and the level is quite muted. Everything on a single sprue. A fair bit of resin, including a cockpit pit. Two vac formed canopies provided. Nice transfer sheet.
  21. Special Hobby 1/72 HA-1112 m-1L Buchon, as a hurricane of a polish squadron, battle of britain movie. Lovely little kit, went together really well, the canopy was the worst part of the kit, so i replaced it with one from a airfix kit. thanks for looking

  23. Special Hobby is to re-release the MPM 1/72nd Breda Ba.88B Lince kit - ref. SH72397 Release is expected in May 2019. Source: http://www.specialhobby.info/2018/10/standa-hajek-new-paintings-for-sh72384.html Box art V.P.
  24. Hi all, I have been doing this for a while now (whilst taking part in the Frog Squad GB and still doing the house), it is a lovely kit and went together quite well. The model is depicted as an early marque with the Hawk rudder. The scoops and exhaust were hollowed out and the control cables for the rudder were added. The model was brush painted in Humbrol 24 Trainer yellow, yes it drove me mad and took six coats. The Engine cowling was painted in Humbrol metalcote polished aluminium, and buffed with a cotton bud and coated in several coats of Klear. Hope you like Thanks for looking All the best Chris
  25. Special Hobby 1/72 T7 straight from the box With the family..... Steve
