Great Special Hobby discount event is here again!   Dear friends, dear customers, we have prepared a new round of the popular long-term discount event DOZEN for you. Traditionally, we bring you 12 different kits and additional resin sets every week with a fantastic 50 percent discount! In each of the four weeks, the offer is changed. At the same time, please note that orders from individual weeks cannot be combined or merged in any way for capacity reasons. We start this Friday, April 2, 2021, when we will present the first 12 items from our special offer. The event will last until May 2, 2021, or until sold out. We believe that you will be interested in our selection and will spend the beginning of spring in the company of one of our top kits.

Beaufighter Mk.IIF - upcoming 1/72 and 1/48 converison sets

Image
 The sole production Beaufighter version to have flown being powered by in-line Merlin engines were the Mk.IIFs. However, the model kit companies tend to produce just the widely used, Hercules radial powerplant equipped versions. So, all those of you tempted to have something unusual in your collection beware of these upcoming resin sets. They are designed to fit the 1/72 Airfix kit, the 1/48 set is made for the Revell kit. There are going to be two sets in each scale, one with the earlier style of the exhausts - set Baufighter Mk.IIF ‘Early Exhausts’ Conversion Set and the other one called the Beaufighter Mk.IIF ‘Late Exhausts’ Conversion Set. The difference obviously being in the nacelles and exhaust type, but the colour schemes and decal sheets will differ too.

F35370 German Infantryman Carried on Hetzer 1944/45 1/35 - new CMK figure

Image
   The war is over. Everyone knows it, no-one has the guts to say it aloud though. Troops retreating. Just do not fall into Russian hands at any cost. Fritz is glad to be sitting. Barricades in Prague, plenty of them. The Russians are close, damn close, but the truce has been agreed with the Resistance. Good for him to be alive, just sitting on a Hetzer... This figure of a tired to death German soldier is based on a series of photographs showing a Hetzer column retreating through French Street in Prague in May 1945. The poor guy is wearing a Luftwaffe uniform, not that he would belong to that force, it is just the end of the war and there is shortage of everything, even a proper uniform, so you must be glad with what you get even if it is superfluous Luftwaffe gear. The figure, cat.no. F35370 is available via our e-shop here .
