News from Special Hobby 08/2019

And here it is again, August, the month of summer holidays  and hot weather (and at least here, in the Czech Republic, summers have been exceptionaly hot lately, indeed) and for us at Special Hobby, it is also the time of the IPMS USA which we are going to attend again. Even though some of our customer may spend the summer time enjoying their holidays, we still do believe that all the new kits we have prepared will be interesting for them. I also would like to remind you about the information, sent earlier in another message, that a handful of items from our range of plastic model kits is available now for a reduced price. Do also pay attention to the list of sold-out and discontinued items and please do not order them again.

So, the new kits coming this August are as follows:


P-40E Warhawk  'Claws and Teeth' Scale Barcode
100-SH72338 1/72 8594071086459

The very icon of US WW2 aviation, the Warhawk model E. The kit contains – two grey styrene sprues, one sprue of clear plastic, full colour instruction booklet and decal sheet with markings for four really eye-catching liveries.

  • Higly accurate and nicely detailed model, the best of Warhawks in this scale
  • Easy assembly
  • Incredible price
  • Decals printed by Cartograf cater for two machines as flown from China-based airfields and another two operated from Australia, all of them wearing highly interesting markings and colours, with remarkable operation history and flown by USAAF ace pilots. Three of the hand picked machines wear viciously-looking shark jaws, the fourth one (depicted on the kit’s box) was adorned with a large bird of prey on its rear fuselage and distinctive motifs on either side of its nose
  • Wide range of CMK accessories available, including pilot/mechanic figures.
