CMK sets for the 1/72 Hasegawa Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate / Frank kit

A bit older, but still rather nice kit of the Japanese Ki-84 fighter colloquially known as the Hayate or Frank in Allied parlance definitely deserves some upgrade and improvements. Our colleagues from CMK studio have prepared four nicely detailed resin sets to accompany the Hasegawa kit.

   CMK 129-7374 contains complete interior, 129-7375 brings fuselage and wing armament, 129-7376 offers the rudder, tailplanes with elevators and also the ailerons. And in Quick& Easy line set no. 129-Q72288 the modeller will find a better pilot’s seat.


   All the aforementioned sets will be available over the weekend at Bratislavska Zima or right now via our e-shop.








SH32065 Fokker D.II in 1/32 - small part mould test shot

Image
All but one component of our slightly delayed  1/32 Fokker D.II project have been already finished, what the kit is waiting for now is just the frame with several smaller items and details. The mould which is to produce this frame needs only very few finishing touches, but this unfortunately prevents us from taking the Fokker with our team to this weekend’s Bratislavska Zima show. Let me say that we are really very sorry for that.
   But no need to be sad about it too much, Special Hobby team is going to offer quite a wide range of other products over the weekend in the capital of Slovakia.
  And before the kit gets released, do check the final sprue for yourselves in the images below.
