Am I losing the plot? Was an Arma Hobby P/F-51D Mustang in 1/72 mentioned for release this year? Did I dream it? DidI misunderstand? 

 

Thanks from te ever hopeful, Martin

 

 

Correct, though it's now Christmas or new year.

I’ll suggest that ‘mystery announcement’ will be of a Spitfire XlVe.

 

It bears the same relationship to the Merlin variants as the P-51B/C does to the D.  No shortage of excellent kits of D’s or Merlin Spitfires but hitherto no ’quality’ B/C or XlV .

By all accounts the B/C was a runaway success, so it would make good sense to repeat with the Spitfire.  I’ll guess, initially, high back with fuselage parts on a separate sprue: low back (on its own sprue) to follow later.  Don’t think we’ll see a ‘c’ wing: not that many built.

 

And when?  Well 29th is my birthday: or is that just wishful thinking?

 

Oh yes: I’ve never been right with any prediction…

  • Homebee changed the title to 1/72 - North American P-51B/C/F.6 Mustang Mk.III by Arma Hobby - P-51B/C & F.6 released

A Spitfire is a Spitfire is a Spitfire.

 

Instead of 35543377863257636 x e^pi versions of one plane, you should wish a new plane kit, that is only available from Bronze Age moulds or in resin bricks or not even available.

Well, going against the trend I’m holding out for an Arma D-model Mustang :). It really can’t be so hard!

This has already been announced: release around Christmas if I remember correctly.  Even if this had not been, look at the B\C sprue layout and content.

Yes, mate. It really isn’t much of a leap to get a D/K done ;). As was said above, there are already Ds on the market but it is time for an improved issue. :)
