RAF Bell Airacobra Special Hobby 1/32

Recommended Posts

Evening folk's next up on the table is Special Hobby's Mk1 Airacobra,I was at the Northern show last week and spied this kit on Kit's for Cash's stall

for a cracking £30.I have to admit the P-39 is one of my favourite aircraft and to get it in this RAF boxing was a bonus I have a full build feature to

reference in a past copy of MAI so I'm aware of the area's needing care,It'll be a slow burner as I've two other1/32 kit's on the go in our GB's and

even re-visited the big Revell Heinkel 111 today which I'm trying to move on,anyway box art.



And a fair amount of plastic in the box.



A bonus in the box colour etched fret and hollowed resin exhaust's



And finally lovely looking decal's and a comprehensive colour callout.



Having built revell's re-boxing of their Seafire I'm aware just how good these "limited run" kit's are reading the build review all being well

should be a substantial build when complete.

Great choice, I also have a soft spot for the P-39, I built the SH kit as a US one and have the same kit as you in the stash as well as another SH kit with Soviet decals and just for variety I have the Kitty Hawk kit as well.

Here's the US one

Well, as I can see from your pictures, the original Special Hobby boxing has much better content than Revell. I didn't have all the PE and resin.

Hi folk's,it was alway's going to be a slow build for the moment with three other 1/32 builds in a couple of our GB's.Anyway a start has been

made with interior painting and the harness fitted.
