SH72376 CASA C-212-100 'Tail Art' - anniversary decals graphics revealed

Image
While the first CASA boxing (SH72344) is almost finished now and is about to become available, Special Hobby team are working diligently on the second boxing, the CASA C-212-100 'Tail Art' SH72376. Today, a truly magnificent set of graphic artwork has arrived from our collaborator Standa Hajek and these will be used for printing one of the two decal sheets contained in the kit. The other sheet, the smaller one, has already been designed and will contain all the plentiful stencilling present throughout on the airframe and also the Portuguese AF roundels and other markings needed for these two extraordinary-looking anniversary machines.








SH48182 Loire 130 Cl in 1/48

Image
A couple of years ago, Special Hobby released the 1/48 Loire 130M model kit (in Azur line, kit no. A051). Now, as this magnificent tram-like flying boat is no longer available, we have decided to make happy many of you addicted to the beauty of French hydroavions and release the Loire in the form of the “colonial” version called the Loire 130 Cl. This model, with cat no. SH48172 is due to reach hobby shops during Summer 2018. Now let’s admire the wonderful boxart painting, of course made by Standa Hajek himself.

SA72018 Biber Trailer - December release

Image
October 2017 saw the release of our 1/72 Biber Midget Submarine kit which is a nice little model, no doubt about it indeed, but what one needs to get his submarine anywhere near a stretch of water? Yes, you have nailed it, a trailer. And that is also what the Germans had and used during the war, wheeled trailers underneath their Biber subs. So, we decided to follow the suit and make for you a model that you could add to your Biber. The model, whose boxart we have attached below, was completely 3D designed and the moulding tools were produced using our CNC milling machines. You may expect the model this December in Special Armour range, cat.no. SA72018.



B72100 1/72 Meillerwagen “V-2 Transporter” - Wheel Set for Special Armour kit

Image
The Meillerwagen kit, cat no. SA72012 has proved to be one of the best selling models we have produced in Special Armour range. Now, we are bringing you a special Blitz set of nine resin wheels with nice levels of detail in the hub area and sharply rendered tyre tread. The wheels were 3D designed and the master parts produced on 3D printer. In the photo, note also the wave-shaped casting film which ensure that the tread on the tyres is not damaged while the casting block and film is being removed.
