SH72329 Delta 1D/E 1/72 - planned for November

Image
One of the Special Hobby releases for November will be the NOrthrop Delta 1D/E. The model is based on older versions of the Delta that we made for Azur/Frrom. However, it has a new fuselage with a cockpit for two pilots. The big parts were made with the short run technology, the smaller parts were designed in 3D and made in metal moulds. The decals include three versions: RAAF and two US versions.
