  1. Hi all This is Special Hobby's 1/48 Fi-103, which came in the box with their Spitfire Mk XII. Didn't take long to build, as there's not really a whole lot to it - wings, fuselage halves, tail, engine cowling. Still needed a bit of filler here and there, but goes together quite well. RLM 76 undersides and a rough 81/82 mottle over the top - no markings as such, but a bit of a surprise just how many stencils needed to go on . The box contains a 'double ended' stand designed to display both models in flight, but I bodged it for a single mount as I'll get round to the
  2. After the 1/72nd kits (link) Special Hobby is reported working for 2020 on a 1/48th Bell AH-1G Cobra/Sea Cobra family. Info obtained from a Special Hobby representative at IPMS Belgium National/Plastic & Steel 2019. To be followed. V.P.
  3. Special Hobby 1/72 CAC CA-9 Wirraway First, to set the mood here's a video about making Wirraways: Wirraway is an Australian variant of the NA-16. Over 700 were built and it was used mainly as a trainer but also as a fighter. The kit is Special Hobby 1:72. Couple of sprues. Looks decent, not too bad. Resin engine and cowling. I'm going with camo A. It says in the description that this particular plane might have ha
  4. This is not my usual build, which is most of the time cold war jets with some 1:48 WW2 planes in the mix which I build for my dad. But I've been checking this kit out for a while now and I've been tempted to give it a go. Clearly not your most straightforward build but with patience I'm sure I can make it work. Good amount of resing and some PE parts in the mix - also a bi-plane which is a first for me. Rigging... well, we will see how it goes when I get there Model itself looks nice - even if bit low on details. I also picked up some Hataka paints - of which I've had really positive experien
  5. Sd.Kfz 250/1 Ausf.A Halftrack 1:72 Special Armour (72019) The Sd.kfz 250 was a light armoured half track similar in appearance to the Hanomag Sd.Kfz.251/1 , both were a mainstay of the German armoured Personnel Carrier fleet, but was flexible enough to also take up many other tasks. With two steering wheels at the front, the rear was carried on tracks, giving it good clearance and rough ground capabilities that a truck simply could not manage once the going got tough. It was armoured sufficiently to deflect non-armour piercing rounds from small arms

  9. ESK 2000B Gun Camera (4417 & 5133) 1:48 & 1:32 CMK by Special Hobby During WWII it was helpful to all combatants to be able to verify claimed kills in order to obtain accurate numbers on enemy attrition, which helped immensely with strategic planning. They were also used during training to help the novice pilots understand where they were going wrong, and could be strapped to airframes that otherwise couldn’t be used. The Germans used such devices, which could be mounted internally where there was space, or externally on smaller airframes. These sets de

  13. Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3 (SH72443) 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
  14. From what I've seen of a build of the new SH Bf109E on the forum there appears to be a definite problem with the fit of the canopy, as in it is too wide. I'm certainly not up to sawing the rear part in half and then re-gluing as was carried out in the build, plus it still leaves you with the front and main canopy parts not fitting correctly so I'm somewhat disappointed to find this out given that the kit is otherwise quite superb. Hopefully a vacuum replacement may become available at some point but until then the three I have will to wait behind my Tamiya 'Emil' instead, unless th
  15. Mirage F.1 EQ/ED (72386) 1:72 Special Hobby The Dassault Mirage F.1 has been a successful point defence fighter for over thirty years, and was developed initially as a private venture by Dassault as a replacement to their ageing Mirage III fighters. It is a single-engined, single-seat fighter aircraft with a high-mounted delta wing and capability of reaching mach 2.2 in short order. Power was provided by a single SNECMA Atar turbojet providing about 7 tonnes-force (69 kN; 15,000 lbf) of thrust. Dassault soon found an eager customer in the shape of the French Armé

  17. Hi guys, here is one of my latest build. This is a tribute to a friend modeller, Joël Ducasse, who passed away a year and a half ago. I've finished this kit he begun to honour his memory. [/url Manu.
  18. This is my Special Hobby Gnat F.1 XN326 RAE Farnborough 1959. The RAF didn’t adopt the F.1, but it saw service overseas with the Indian and Finnish Air Forces in particular. The twin seat derivative was adopted by the RAF as the, by then, Hawker Siddeley Gnat T.1 which became famous as the Red Arrows’ first aircraft type. This was an early trials/demo aircraft and as such I didn’t weather it as I figured it would have been kept fairly clean. I finished it in semi-gloss varnish as I figured the real thing would have been slightly glossy.
  19. 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

  22. Here's a couple of P-40 Kittyhawk's I did for the current ANZAC GB. Both OOB SH kits, apart from Xtradecal markings used for Kittyhawk IV. Both beautifully produced kits which went together with no problems apart from the open canopy on the Mk.1A which didn't fit well, I managed to split it as it's that thinly moulded but that's to do with my cack-handedness. Vallejo ModelAir paint used throughout with, for the first time, Humbrol Decal setting solution which worked really well. 'Klear' Gloss coat and Vallejo Matt varnish airbrushed to finish. Very minimal weathering as usual f

  25. 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
