Beaufighter TF Mk.X in 1/72 - CMK sets

Image
Special Hobby in its CMK line of resin products offers three (so far, more to come) sets to accompany the new 1/72 Beaufighter TF Mk.X kit. These are the 7437 Beaufighter TF Mk.X Cockpit which comes with a fret of photoetches, 7438 Beaufighter TF Mk.X Main Undercarriage Bays Correction and 7439 Beaufighter TF Mk.X Dinghy Set.

Mila Hraban undoubtedly is an outstanding Czech modeller, so have a look now at his recently built P-40E Warhawk which he finished in colours of 343FG, 11FS as based at Adak, Alaska. This is a Hasegawa's 1/32 scale kit which Mila enriched with using CMK P-40E cockpit, CMK P-40E undercarriage bay resin sets, photo etches and resin wheels from Eduard and home made die cut masks.

Edouardo Rosso, a very nice modeller from Italy and a personal acquaintance of our production manager Mr.Riedel from the Telford show has shared with us and the readers of SH blog photos of his recently finished 1/48 Siebel Si 204D model. And as he has said, he was very happy with the kit. Just a pity the images are so small, perhaps because of Edouardo's home quarantine…

Despite the coronavirus crisis, Special Hobby team are busy making new products. The following couple of images illustrate well what is being worked on right now. While the Lone Wolf Viggen does not need any more words, the orange-ish colour, 3D-printed master patterns are the nucleus of our forthcoming sets for the 1/72 He 162 - jet engine plus armament bays and for the 1/48 Recon nose F-4-1 and F-5A conversion sets to be used with a P-38F/G kits. It springs to mind now, I have forgotten to mention and show the 1/48 Hawker Hunter flaps, okay, next time, bear with us….
