News from Special Hobby 06/2019


 The June edition of Special Hobby Newsletter is here to bring you the new release which has managed to arouse a huge interest among modellers, in fact they do keep asking about it every single time a new piece of information is revealed on our facebook page and the ratings of our posts and number of shares are simply skyrocketing and breaking every records. This new release is the 1/48 Siebel Si 204D model kit and we are happy to bring you not just this one but also the 1/72 Canadian Vickers Delta Mk.II RCAF 'On snow and water' with both skis and floats, as the name suggests and the Swiss DH.100 Vampire FB.6 ‘Pinocchio Nose’ in the same scale.

  CMK sets for this June focus mainly on Special Hobby kits. There are in total three different sets with underwing ordnance suitable for the Israeli Fouga Magister / Tsukit models. The usage of these sets is not limited just to the Fouga / Tsukit, wide variety of other types in service with the IAF could be fitted with these weapons as well, starting with very early types in the IAF inventory such as the Spitfire or Mustang and ending with Ouragan and Mystere IV jets. The CMK team have also prepared as many as five sets (and more to come) for this May new release, the Special Hobby 1/72 SAAB Viggen kits (and also those reboxed by Tarangus).

  And now we are getting to the sets and kits which are being currently prepared to be released in months to come. Along with the already mentioned 1/72 Viggen sets, we are working on a few more sets for the Hasegawa 1/48 N1K2-J, a couple of 1/48 conversion sets for the Finnish Blenheims and let us not forget the 1/72 French tank ARL-44 in our Military Vehicle range.

  Plastic model kits to reach the market in July are the 1/32 Hi-Tech edition of the Fieseler Fi 103/V-1 flying bomb and the 1/72 JA-37 Viggen in the fighter configuration.
