  4. Focke Wulf Fw 189B-0/B-1 "Luftwaffe Trainer" (SH72430) 1:72 Special Hobby The Fw 189 won the competition in to replace older reconnaissance type with the Luftwaffe beating the Ar 189 and Bv 141. The type went on to become the Luftwaffe's standard tactical recon platform. The aircraft features a central fuselage pod heavily glazed, with twin booms leading back to the tail, the front of which housed the engines. The Luftwaffe looked at expanding 189 production and called for a training version, attack version and a maritime version with floats. Only 2 prototype atta
  5. Dear fellow modellers, greetings from Italy. Here you are, just finished, my Special Hobby Re 2005 Sagittario. The kit is a bit tricky like all Special Hobby ones but a lot better compared to others from the same brand. This airplane has a beatufil design, one of my favourites, and it'a pity that there is only one camouflage applicable and very few decals options... unfortunately to few of them entered in service and for a very short time. The model is basically OOB. I've just added Eduard seatbelts, scrhatched some internal details and cut the control surfaces on
  6. Morane-Saulnier type 'N' Bullet. 1/32 Special Hobby The Morane Saulnier Type N first flew in May 1914, well before the outbreak of the Great war and was designed as a racer rather than a combat aircraft. Although a fairly modern looking machine, it lacked ailerons and used wing warping instead. The tailplane was all moving and only the rudder was hinged on the fin. It was fitted with a Hotchkiss machine gun which was not synchronized to fire through the spinning propeller, rather it used two large steel wedges to deflect the bullets off it. Thus equipped, a s
  7. Beaufighter Mk.21 Conversion Set (4406 for Revell) & British Hedgehog Exhausts (Q38386 for Revell) 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby Revell released a new tooling of the Beaufighter in 1:48 in 2018, with a few reboxings happening since then. There are some additions and conversions not yet covered though, and Special Hobby have identified a few areas that could be of use to us modellers. DAP Beaufighter Mk.21 Conversion Set (4406 for Revell) The Mk.21 was a variant made in Australia where it saw extensive service against the Japanese forces, fitted

  9. Bf.109G German Pilot, Seated (F48368 for Eduard) 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby A pilot figure in an aircraft model seems to have become superfluous to requirements for a lot of modern manufacturers, which forces us to peruse the aftermarket arena for a suitable candidate when the need arises. As usual with CMK's resin sets, they arrive in the familiar clear vacformed box, with the resin parts safely inside, and the instructions sandwiched between the header card at the rear. Decals and Photo-Etch (PE) when included is separated from the resin parts by a clear piece
  10. EoN Eton TX.1/SG-38 Over Western Europe (SH72442) 1:72 Special Hobby The Schneider SG-38 was a bare-bones glider designer to be an introductory airframe in flight schools. It was designed in the late 30s, and was manufactured by a number of companies, latterly Elliotts of Newbury as the Eton TX.1. It was employed in the UK and other countries after WWII as a cheap glider to be used by aeroclubs, which were still popular after the war. It was a truly basic in design, with a fabric covered wing and empennage, using bracing wires to hold it rigid like a WWI fighte

  15. Please let me know what you think and any suggestions/advice/techniques are welcome! Thanks! After a long absence from these pages ( I have been lurking once in awhile) I present a WIP of the new Revell 1/32 Tempest Mk.V. This of course a re-issue of the Special Hobby kit. I will be using the Barracuda Studios nose correction set and wheels/tires. I bought Roy's seat too but I think the kit parts are superior in this rare case. I believe the Barracuda seat was designed for Revell's older Typhoon??? In regards to the kit I can say the following: - Moulding quality look
  16. Hurricane Wing Armaments (8 guns) Set 1:72 CMK by Special Hobby for Arma Hobby kit While the new Arma Hobbies Hurricanes are great kits they dont give you the option to open the wing gunbays. This new set from CMK gives us the gun bays for the 8 gun metal wing aircraft.As well as the main bays eight 303 machine guns are included with PE feed trays. PE is also provided for part of the internal structures in the wing, The last items in the box are new covers for the gun bays. All the parts are very well cast. with no issues visible at all.
  17. Gloster Meteor F.8 Prone Pilot (72424) 1:72 Special Hobby With the increase in speed of early Jet fighters a different command position than sitting was being looked at. By lying prone it was thought the pilots would be less susceptible to G forces. Another advantage would be that the front section of the aircraft would have a lower profile. Bristol looked to adopt this for their rocket powered fighter, and as such the RAF needed this to be tested. WK935 the last production Meteor was to be modified as a test bed. While the standard cockpit was retaine

Also provided is a new cowl to display next to the model. All the parts are very well cast. with no issues visible at all. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

  23. A-20A/B/C/DB-7C Havoc/Boston "Early Gunships" 1:72 Special Hobby The A-20/DB-7 Havoc, known in Royal Air Force circles as the as the Boston, was a light bomber developed by the California-based Douglas Aircraft Company. Designed to a US Air Force specification issued in 1937, the aircraft’s first customer was actually the French Air Force, representatives of which had been impressed by its performance whilst visiting the USA as part of a pre-war purchasing commission. Those aircraft not delivered to France by the time the armistice had been signed in 1
  24. Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 (SH72439) 1:72 Special Hobby The BF 109 has inherited quite a legendary status and when you look into its service career, it's certainly obvious why. Viewing the design in retrospect, it looks just like a typical fighter of the WWII era, but it was more than that, it was the very platform that the single seat fighter format was born from. Powerful engine, monocoque airframe, all metal construction, enclosed cockpit and retractable gear this was unheard of before hand, it was radical, not typical in the 1930's. Its birth wasn't perfect howev
