Special Hobby models progress

   Earlier today, we have test produced the first shots of clear parts for our 1/72 SMB.2 Super Mystere, C-41A and Vampire Mk.I models. As you can inspect in the photos below, the C-41A (US-used CASA C-212) clear window dome and SMB.2 canopy fit exactly like a glove, which makes us particularly happy indeed. And now, our toolmakers are about to give these moulds  proper polishing. With the new clear dome part finished, the C-41A kit will offer the modeller a correctly sized side door window, much different from any other CASA that has ever flown. This model's decal sheet has already been sent to Cartograf, its final draft is also attached.
   Even lower, let us show you the Vampire Mk.I canopy, the very early style. You may have noticed that our Vampire kits do contain also this early canopy, we have to admit we did not like it though, the shape was rather wrong, so we have decided to rework it completely. This new canopy is to be issued for the first time with SH72383 Vampire Mk.I RAF and RAAF kit. (our first Mk.I Vampire - kit no SH72339 - did not need this style of canopy)
  A production of the Canadian Vickers Delta Mk.II/III fuselage and small parts sprue has just begun. The fuselage mould is in a short run standard, the small parts including the Canadian Delta ordnance are being injected into a metal type mould.
