That was precisely my reaction when I read your comment!!! I gave up when I realised I had no idea how deep in the cowling the resin engine was supposed to be mounted nor any discernible way of mounting the undercarriage in the gear bay. Oh and I managed to glue two lower wing halves together - however, I’m prepared to take the blame for that one!! 

Hmmmm, sounds like now would be a good time to move my Sword FM2 on. :unsure: :D

I thought that too, but I'd be surprised if I got any takers. I was kind of ok with the Sword kit, though call me old fashioned, but I do quite like having locating lugs on my wings and tailplanes. Then I saw the U/C, and the lack of any idea where it all went, and put the thing back in the box. So Arma Hobby are my new best friends at the moment 🙂

Looks pretty damned good to me!

 

Separate elevators and rudder are a nice little touch.  Nicely detailed engine, in fact a good level of detail overall.  Bravo Arma!!

Like Wez said PDG. Cannot see my Sword kit (never built as instructions were not with kit) getting built.

ARMA seemed to have done a job on those photos, they are terribly pixelated. Scaled then down and then scaled them up before putting there watermark on them.

Wildcat looks simple gorgeous. From pictures simple best 1/72 what i see... I sold all 1/72 kit, but Hurricane Mk. IIC i must have - and Wildcat may be next... Really nice with details as 1/48 kit.... Great... (BARDZO DOBRE) ! (And this later version of Wildcat in dark coat is very elegant.) 

 

I must stand up Eduard - in last two years make a complet  new MiG-21 "Fishbed" series (with TWO  subvariants of MF !), Fokker D.VII, Kuňkadlo  (This is impresive small kit -1/72 but in dimensions of 1/144 kit - simple ultra light plane) and in prepare is Z-37 "Čmelák"  - and Eduard make  a 1/48 kits too, not  only 1/72...  And is difference when you make  a only one scale, or you have multi-scale program....

If this is as good as their recent Hurricanes, and it looks like it will be, I can't wait to get hold of one, or maybe two

...or 7.

Bravo, Arma hobby!  Another one if theirs I'll be buying.

That looks even better than the Hurricane, this company is going from strength to strength.

 

Ten years back you would never have guessed from these sprue shots this is 1/72, You'd think it's 1/48 or even 1/32.

Techmod is doing already (for Sword kit, originally)  sets of decals for FM 2

Indeed, it's the world we're in. Everything's getting smaller. Except debt and my waist.

Trying to remember where I got my Hurricane from, pretty sure it was MJW models, I've had nothing but great service from them & their postage rates are pretty good but maybe have to wait for this silliness to pass before normal service resumes. @Mikemx should be able to fill in the gaps hopefully.

Whoops.

Guess the Airfix Wildcat just got bumped by this one for an FAA build.
