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…

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. :)

reposting under the appropriate subject 


From yesterday’s newsletter “Last weekend, Arma Hobby officially presented itself at the modelling show for the first time. We took part in the Babaryba Warsaw Modeling Festival. We showed the first assembled Hurricane Mk IIc model in 1/48 scale and a large 3D print of the next project in 1/72 scale - the P-51D Mustang.

I know there are other kits out there, does anyone think Arma will do the P-51H ? 

I very much hope so. If not them, then Modesvit 1/48 scaled down. The RS, CMR and High Planes kits all have shape issues, though the RS is probably the best detailed and most correctable.

This kit will be later available with other retailers. Arma Hobby's recent Hurricane dual combo is most probably the same size and weight as the upcoming Mustang combo. On Mojehobby.com (excellent place for all kits and modelling stuff, no affiliation) there's a shipping calculator. I typed the weight and and order value of that Hurricane kit. Two of the cheapest options were 16 and 19.60 NZD. I don't know what shipping from Arma Hobby to NZ costs, but if the calculator shows the true cost, it's at least  less than AH's shipping to Finland (24.50 NZD) which is close to Poland.

 

You can check yourself, create an account, make an "order" with that Hurricane kit, it will show the actual shipping costs, before you have to finalize anything. One important thing, Super-Hobby and Mojehobby are the same company, but it's better to order from Mojehobby.pl and pay in Polish currency, the prices are lower than in Super-Hobby were you can choose from different currencies. I just use Google translate as the site is in Polish.

Just pre-ordered mine and including delivery to U.K. was £35 which is pretty reasonable for a dual boxing IMHO

As you don't obviously pay the VAT when ordering, do you have to pay it once the package in in the UK?

I've bought decals from Mojehobby/Superhobby but always fond the cost of a kit too expensive for me, maybe I'm doing something wrong. :unsure:
