SH72418 SF-260 - which boxart?

Image
One tiny thing still remains to get sorted out with our forthcoming 1/72 SH72418 SIAI Marchetti SF 260 kit - the choice of the box top art image. As our regular masters of the brush are being kept busy with other projects, we do have the sprues ready, but not the boxarts. So, it crossed our minds to get the friends from H.M.H, publishers of the excellent Duke Hawkins books (also on our offer) involved here, too. They agreed and got us a couple of really nice photos. The trouble now is, however, which one to chose? So, if you'd be so very kind and let us know which boxart you prefer - whether the in-flight photo or rather the other one depicting the machine standing on the tarmac.Thank you!

SH72418 SIAI-Marchetti SF.260 - first test sprue images

Image
The upcoming SH72418 SF.260 kit project has made one more step towards completion. Today morning our toolmakers attached the small parts mould to the injection machine to get the very first test shots. Check for yourselves, we think they do look quite nice. Still need some polishing and adjustments, nothing major though - as you can see in the last photo below. We are really quite happy both with the looks of the parts and with how fast we achieved this result. Stay tuned for more.

News from Special Hobby 09/2020

As I promised a month ago, Special Hobby is now releasing the first of bunch model kits which  moulding tools we have bought from MK72. The Marder II is an excellent model oozing with fine detail and it no doubt falls perfectly into our Special Armour range of military vehicle models. More ex-MK72 models are to come of course. We are also going to add some our earlier, long time sold out injection moulded CMK kits to this range of products. The first to see the light in this new guise will be model no.T35010 Panzerbefehlswagen Pz.Bef. 35(t) in 1/35. Quite similarly, some sold out Azur and MPM Production models which the modellers keep asking for are to appear re-released under Special Hobby brand. And not just models previously released in other product ranges, some of the earlier and am not afraid to say successful Special Hobby items too are to get released again – such as the X-15A-2 in 1/32 for example, which in its time sold like a hot cake. So, as the customers have been aski…
