The surprise for Nuremberg Toy Fair

Image
Special Hobby has prepared a couple of surprises for the Toyfair 2020 in Nuremberg (January 29 - February 2, 2020). One of them is the Heinkel He 162A Spatz 1/72 kit. The first boxing will appear under the catalogue number SH72341 and it will be released in Spring 2020. The kit was prepared in 3D and the level of details will easily match our latest kits like SMB-2 or Viggen. For the moment we bring you the boxart and glimpses of the 3D design. We will have have the testshots with us in our booth (hall 7, booth E-52). We look forward to seeing you there.
