  1. My first build of 2021, and a nice simple one to get back into it. This Special Hobby Vampire is a nice little kit and fits together really well. It does need a lot of nose weight though! I made this one out of the box, including the decals for 601 Sqn.
  2. After the Dassault Mirage F-1, Special Hobby is to release a complete family of 1/72nd Dassault Mirage III/5 Nesher/Dagger kits.

  4. I couldn’t get motivated for the Sea King yet, too much interior stuff needed, so I thought I’d try a simple (hopefully!) build. This little Vampire should fit the bill, an all-over silver finish and simple cockpit. It’ll sit nicely with my Meteors, Sabre and Javelin, (Hunter and Swift at some point) in this scale. Nice box art, I haven’t made a Special Hobby kit before but it looks nice, lots of detail for its size and five decal options.
  5. Dear fellow Britmodellers, my first completed AFV in 2021 is the 1/72 Special Hobby Marder II. This kit was originally released under the 'MK72' label in 2011. It's a highly detailled quality tooling, on par with the latest Revell releases. Coincidentially, other versions based on this chassis (StuH Grille & Marder III) will be released by Revell Germany, according to their news announcement. I especially liked the one-piece tracks that simply wrap around the drive sprocket, as link'n'length tracks in 72 scale frequently cause me problems. I painted
  6. Sd.Kfz.131 Marder II crates & Crew Helmets (B72103) 1:72 Blitz Line by Special Hobby If you’ve got the Special Armour Sd.Kfz.131 Marder II kit in 1:72, reviewed here on the forum, you should consider grabbing this set from CMK. As usual with their resin sets, they arrive in the familiar clear bag, with the resin parts safely inside, and the instructions sandwiched between the red-themed header card at the rear. There are six resin parts in the package on two casting blocks. You get four crew helmets with joins on the domed tops and
  7. Medium Coarse Brass Chain (H1016) 1:35 & 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby Lots of vehicles have short chains hanging from them, and there are a myriad uses for it in dioramas, as well as on boats and ships. Getting chains in scale isn’t always that easy, so having ready access to a series of sizes in a handy pack is pretty useful. This set contains 30cm of brass chain with links that are 2mm wide and 2.5mm long, although you actually get a shade more than 30cm, which is nice. It comes in a flat CMK package with the chain held inside a ziplok bag to reduce tarnishi

  14. B-17G Flying Fortress Dinghy (4414 for HK Models) 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby HK Models’ new medium-sized 1:48 B-17G, not to be confused with their own gigantic 1:32 kit has been around for a while now, taking over the mantle from the old Monogram kit. The Flying Fortress often flew over large tracts of water, and like most WWII aircraft it had a dinghy pack oboard in case it went down far away from land. Being a tad larger than a fighter, and with 9+ crew, a larger dinghy was required, which was housed in the raised cockpit portion of the fuselage behind the mid-
  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

  17. Harrier T.12 Conversion Kit (4373 for Hasegawa) 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby The Hawker Harrier, later under BAe’s auspices has had a two-seat trainer in both its original metal-winged version and the newer composite winged upgrade. Kinetic’s newish kit covers the T.2. T.2A, T.4, T.4N and T.8 variants, but there were another two, the last of which was the T.12, a series of nine T.10s that were upgraded to GR.9 standards, the last of the British Harriers in service with the RAF. There were also T.12As with more powerful engines, with T.10s onwards being combat capab

  21. Hi all This is a stalled build that j picked up again along with my other stalled builds during this crazy year. I have been fortunate enough to keep working through the year although working from home which has it's advantages in fuel and travel time. This kit is quite nice and I stopped it due to fears over fitting the top wing however after completing the Amodel DH60 I decided I would give it another go and found it really easy as this one coul be placed on the wing upside down on the workbench and left to dry. Brilliant. The kit is out of the box . The mass balances o

  24. Hi there, First I wish you all a happy new year! This build was started around mid december, just for me to see if I could still tackle kits in 1/72 scale. Here we go! This is a nice little kit first released in 2014, but this repop is from 2018. The sprues looks fine and parts are nicely detailed. Wonder if this can still be called short run... No surprise, I've started with the pit, but didn't waisted too much time, as in the end there will be nearly nothing left to be seen. I'd painted it black (!
  25. Hi All Encouraged challenged when I'd had too much red wine by the Naughty Corner ( @corsaircorp @bigbadbadge you should be ashamed of yourselves), I'm adding another RAAF type to my current Airacobra build, which you can see here: Soooo, diving headlong into my first multi-build, the same week I start a new job - what could possibly go wrong? I'm going to be building Special Hobby's 1:48 Boomerang. I have to admit much ignorance when it comes to this type, so I look forward to learning more as the build progresses. I have no doubt that my Aussie brethren
