Hobby 2000 - more kits from Polish reboxed Hasegawa (1/72)

Recommended Posts

Hi

Polish company Hobby 2000 announced reboxing (after Beau, Folgere and Hurricane) of Avenger, Dauntless, Buffalo and Tenzan by Hasegawa (moulds) with new decals (Cartograph) and Montex masks.

https://nowosci.plastikowe.pl/aktualnosci/zapowiedzi-2019-2020-hobby-2000/

The info is not new but I browsed Rumourmonger and did not found it. Sorry If it was known already...

Some of them were not produced for years

Regards

J-W

The B6N1 & N2 have 72*** part numbers, no photos showing. I'm only aware of Hasegawa doing these in 1/48, with Fujimi doing them in 1/72. Have they been OOP for that long?

The Brewster B339B/C is a good idea, obviously it will come with a resin tail cone and spinner.

Hase has sorely missed that opportunity for decades.

 

Also I like it that the Grumman Avengers and the Dauntless will be re-released even if indirectly means not by Hase themselves.

 

And maybe since they call them Tenzan they are the Fujimi kits ?

They're bound to be Martin. As the modelling Gods ordain it, I've relatively recently (this year) picked up a Fujimi B6N as well as the Hasegawa TBF & SBD after waiting on them for years. :(

Will be interesting to see how their prices compare with Hasegawa imports

Spoiler

The announced price seems to be higher than original Hase boxing used to be (not suprisingly) and it is more or less equal to a halve of the Combo package.

Some idea on prices in eurp you can get from Martola (Warsaw) shop web page https://www.martola.com.pl/en after fast browsing:

Brewster239 13.90   

Brewster339 15.37

Beaus 26.83

Dauntless 14.63

Avenger 16.83

Folgore 13.90

 

No info yet on Tenzan, I belive it is not mistake with B5N....

Cheers

p.s.

Tenzan is repeated here

I know Steve, especially the Dauntless kits are difficult to get hold of, not only where you live.

In a silly mood I sold mine about 5 years ago.

Not without a reason - when buying sprues from Hase, one has to pay nearly the same amount as when importing full kits...

Well, it depends... other companies pay quite different amounts for the bare sprues.

Hannants and Armahobby are selling them. Iirc the Finnish Buffalo is around £12 (it’s in my backorder list :p)

 

There is one B6N1 and one B6N2 boxing with pictures at armahobby.com

Yes, I would agree with you there. They seem to have a marked tendency to avoid conforming to curved surfaces as well as general poor adhesion.They are like the old Eduard vinyl masks . I didn't like them either.

Does anyone know what`s inside the Brewster339 B/C box? Does it contain the necessary bits to make this version (tail cone, tail wheel and spinner?) or does one still need to buy the Quickboost/Pavla aftermarket?

Re released by Hasegawa in January 2019 

10+ kits on Hannants website sold out in under 48 hours

Would think it unlikely Hasegawa would release the moulds to some one else if there is still a substantial demand for there own boxings

Best bet would be the second hand market, or wait for another reissue

Here

https://exito.sklep.pl/pl/p/HOBBY-2000-72012-172-Brewster-339-BC-Buffalo/51131

is written that it contains some resin parts...Not specified which one

Again I refer to armahobby.com. The webshop has a picture of the resin. Looks like a tail and tailwheel to me, but no spinner.

In addition to this, there should be also different canopy centre part with oval-shaped window in it, or at least a decal for it.

That`s the Quickboost tail cone and tail wheel set:

So, basically, the Pavla B339E resin set with vacuform canopy is still a mandatory purchase?
