Super Mystere B2 in 1/72 almost on finals now

Image
Due for May release are two initial boxings of the French SMB-2 Super Mystere, a kit Special Hobby have prepared for Azur-Frrom partner.  Both these kits contain various and highly colourful French marking options, now we are happy to share with you the image of the sheets which are currently being printed in Italy. Almost finished is the last of all the project’s moulding blocks, the one containing various underwing stores, both for the original French machines and for those flown and operated by the Israeli Air Force – the latter to be released by Special Hobby towards the end of this year.

   Czech modellers will have the oportunity to get their hands on these Azur-Frrom models via our on-line store www.specialhobby.eu

Allow us a bit of artistic licence now, looking at the photos, one might say that the Vesikko’s deck moulds are emerging from their its bath of technical oil similar way the real craft was emerging from the sea at her time.

The first release of the kit called Duo Pack brings in actual fact two models along with a real treat, a nice photographic publication portraying the type from many various aspects. Besides this beauty, we have prepared for you a couple of interesting CMK sets, among them some follow on releases for the Airfix 1/48Blenheim Mk.I and 1/72 Sea King kits as well as first sets tailored for the 1/48 N1K-1J Kai, with more coverage of this Japanese fighter plane to follow later. Last but not least, our range of resin figures gets a welcomed boost, a German Luftwaffe ground crew member with a draught ox in 1/48 scale. This set is recommended to portray a German late war era airfield with military planes being pulled by this pair, but …
