SH72455 DH.100 Vampire FB.Mk.9 ’Tropicalised Fighter-Bomber’- clearly very hot piece of boxart

Sometimes this autumn, Special Hobby will be releasing two new 1/72 Vampire reboxings.  Along with the ‘long-winged’ Mk.3 Vampire, you will be also tempted by a version we have not released before, the tropicalised, fighter bomber FB Mk.9 Vampire. As you will have guessed from the name, these Vampires had been fitted with an air-con unit in a special housing on the starboard side of the fuselage nacelle, just front of the air intake, which made them suitable for service in hot areas. The boxart below is another CGI masterpiece by M.Reiniš.
