Beaufighter Mk.II conversion sets in 1/72

Image
Special Hobby's range of conversion sets has recently received a very welcome addition in the form of two sets enabling the modeller to turn their Mk.10 Beaufighter models into something really different and rather unique - the Mk.II in-line Merlin engined version of the Beaufighter. While set no. 7489   portrays the early version of the type, set  7490  brings you the opportunity to model the BEaufighter with the later style exhausts. And good news for those who have the Hasegawa kits in their stash, with only very little extra skill required, the sets can be used for the Japanese kits too.

A few details on upcoming releases

In one of the earlier instalments of Special Hobby blog not a long time ago you could see the colour profile options of the upcoing L-4 Grasshopper release. Now we are happy to be able to show you the decal sheet of the kit as well as the boxart of the Aero 11 Blue Bird limited release - which stands out from the rest of SH boxtop designs.

Mr.Jaroslav Supik has been busy again, this time finishing a splendid rendition of a Messerschmitt Me 163C-2 rocket propelled fighter. The kit Jaroslav used is Special Hobby's   SH72258  Messerschmitt Me 163C ‘Prototypes’  adapted to resemble projected C-2 version and wearing a rather well fitting though fictitious  ‘Luftwaffe 1946’  scheme. Thanks a lot for the nice images Mr.Supik!
