News from Special Hobby 10/2019

Some of the models and sets which were mentioned in the previous instalment of our monthly Newesletter are going to be presented to the readers now, in the October Special Hobby Newsletter. And our team are working hard on the others. We have also decided on unveiling two more projects which are currently in development – these being a pair of Italian WW2 fighter aeroplanes, the Reggiane Re 2000 Falco and Reggiane Re 2005 Sagittario, both in the quarter scale. We expect they can appear on the shop shelves in very early 2020. Both these kits will reach the standards of our latest 1/48 scale models such as the Siebel Si 204, ie with 3D-designed components produced from milled moulding tools. And now, as it seems, these very types are also being worked on by other model companies – but to be honest we are not afraid of this unintended  confrontation, being quite sure of the still-increasing levels of quality of our recent models. And what is in the pipe line before the Italians come out? Due for November release is the first one of the 1/72 Night Fighter Meteors, the NF Mk.12, and it is quite likely that the pre-Christmas market will see the release of yet another model in the limiter Duo Pack & Book series of models.
