Our friend Mila Hraban has recently finished Special Hobby's SH32074 Fi 103A-1/Re 4 manned buzz bomb model and very kindly sent us a couple of images showing this model alongside his earlier built standard variety of the V-1 (SH32071 ).

SH72397 Breda Ba.88B Lince - camouflage schemes

Breda Ba.88B Lince kit (SH72397) is scheduled for a February release, among a couple other models and sets. Now let's take a brief look at the camouflage schemes offered in this model. Two of them portray the Breda as flown in continental Italy, the third one is a plane that operated from an African base.

One of our new releases for this February is also a re-issue of the very unique Blohm Voss BV 155, model no.SH72372 named 'Luftwaffe 46 High Altitude Fighter'. The model kit brings three colour scheme options, all of which portray fictional Luftwaffe machines. Hope you like them.

News from Special Hobby 02/2019

In this year’s second edition of the Special Hobby Newsletter, I cannot forget to mention as always this time, one of the most important model events of the year, the Nuremberg Toy Fair, or SPIELWARENMESSE 2019. Let me invite you all, the modellers and customers alike, who want to learn more about our production plans to come and visit our stand E-52 in Hall 7. It will bring us a great pleasure to meet with you there and show you our upcoming projects.    Due for this February release are not just three plastic model kits, but as many as eight new resin detail sets. While all the models come in 1/72 scale, the sets will no doubt appeal also to quarter scale fans. I would like to draw your attention to the Palouste Mk.101/102 starter trolley. We already make this in 1/72 and now we are bringing it to you in 1/48.

SH32074 Fieseler Fi 103A-1/Re 4 Reichenberg - the box contents

   Having already released the 1/32 scale Fi 103/V-1 Buzz Bomb model (SH32071), we simply had no other option than to come up with its manned version too. Although being almost identical at the very first glance, the Fi 103A-1/Re 4 Reichenberg differed hugely from its predecessor. Yes the pilot’s canopy is an unmistakable feature, but there were also the wings fitted with ailerons to name just the most obvious differences.   Yesterday, Special Hobby team managed to finish injection moulding the very last components and were able to start packaging and preparing the model for the customers. The other photos of today’s blog show the 1/72 Potez 25 clear parts moulding tool being milled and also the very last moulding tool of our upcoming 1/72 Sunderland project – the depth charges trolley mould and of course also another mould for the 1/48 Siebel which contains the floor and other interior components
