News from Special Hobby 07/2019


   This Spring, as it seems, has got very much to offer for the plastic modeller and kit collector alike:  the 72 scale injection moulded Sunderland and Viggen kits and the quarter scale Siebel Si 204D seem to be breaking all the records of sales. On par with them are the new 1/48 CMK resin sets for the Blenheim, J2M and N1K2-J kits and 1/72 and 1/48 pilot figures for the Viggen kits. Obviously, it makes us very happy.

   During the summer holiday season, we will be bringing you just two injection moulded kits a month, and if you ask why, well even though our team is made of very eager enthusiasts, their wives and partners insist on at least some humble family holidays too. So, the kits to be out this July are the 1/32 Hi-Tech Fieseler Fi 103/V-1 and the JA-37 fighter version of the 1/72 Viggen. In our range of CMK resin sets, we are happy to offer you interior sets for both the single-seater and two-seater Viggen kits, two more sets designed to enliven your 1/48 N1K2J models, soem figures to go with the 1/72 Wellington and a couple more....
