  1. Westland Whirlwind Mk. 1 patterns on display on the Special Hobby stand at the Nuremberg show - from the Special Hobby Facebook Page: <want> Iain
  2. A Thing Divine For Nothing Natural I Ever Saw So Nobel Special Hobby Tempest Mk.V #32052 was used for Evan Mackies mount. Mackie, RNZAF, was the highest scoring Tempest ace with 20+ kills. Albeit, most of Mackies kills were in Spitfires. This kit is a most difficult build. I started this almost 2 years ago and binned it several times as my MoJo was clearly flattened with this. From the cockpit, wing root and landing gear construction offered me plenty of WTFFF! and Are You Kidding Me! moments. There was a good chance you may have heard my s
  3. hello, my last built , all markings are paint , enjoy :
  4. This is Special Hobby's 1/32 scale V-1. A lovely little kit, the usual lo-run moulding features, a bit of etch and a good decal sheet. All paint by Mission Models with a final wash of Flory Black Weathering fluid. Very fast and easy to build and paint. The rear end of the fuselage and engine was assembled and painted in one factory, the explosive section in another and the nose guidance system at a third, all painted where manufactured. Like most munitions, they would only come together as a complete unit prior to launch, being assembled and adjusted in the local bomb dump. Hence the mott
  5. I was very delighted when Special Hobby announced the V1 in 1/32 scale. The only other option in our beloved scale is the Profimodeller resin kit which has a very steep price (€60,-) for such a small kit. The Special Hobby kit can be picked up for a mere €22,-. So I immediately bought this little kit when a had the option. After the Ju388 I needed a quick build; simple and without aftermarket. This little kit was the perfect choice. I've build and painted it about a 5 or six evenings. Plastic is nice and good to work with. Some of the holes for the locating pins on one half of the
  6. SH is going to produce V1/Reichenberg in 1/32 Info from their blog.
  7. Special Hobby Fiat in finnish markings. This paintwork required some work on tail. Unfortunately higher vertical fin isn't supplied in the box so i needed to scratch it. I made some corrections and adjustments to match finnish planes: - pilot seat is moved backwards - guns have metal tubes made from syringe needle - shelf between IP top and bottom is added I used these additions: - Yahu IP - Techmod hakaristi decals - Montex masks (plane number) Surface is riveted and wheels are weighted. I can really recommend this kit to everyone who likes Italian planes - it's simple, a
  8. I know, I SWORE I was done with P-39's after the debacle with the KH P-39 (and soothed my frayed nerves with a Eduard P-39 just to make up for it), but ended up with the Special Hobby P-39Q a while ago and finally pulled it out to take a look at it. After building five other P-39s I finally found a subject I had never seen before - so giving it one last go! SH with the resin cockpit and Eduard PE Interior bits. Lovely, with NO engine or nose machinery so this should be a decently quick build with most of the focus on the finish (more on that in just a minute) and the cockpit.
  9. Before participation in 303 Squadron in England Polish pilots fought in France. They destroyed 50 german planes and probably 17 more. 10 fall, also pilot of my plane - Kazimierz Bursztyn.
  10. Some in progress shots of of this Tempest I've been working on for a GB on Facebook. The theme is British aircraft in foreign markings, so I'm be doing a Royal Pakistan Air Force birdy. Except for a few styrene filler strips here and there I'm doing an OOB build. Wheel bay assembly is a mess and part H34 and H49 have shape issues. Despite what the instructions say I used the top part of the wing to align everything and that helped a great deal but there's a lot of sanding and scraping needed on the wings to get it all to fit. The "engine" is more of a placeholder but you
  11. Luv this kit. Engine and cowling was fun to fit but other than that a great build. Mr Paints for the scheme. Will be at Telford on Scale modelling now stand
  12. This kit is a tough build (typical limited run) but if you want a LSP Yak, well, this is your only choice. Places to watch out for are the wheel bays, canopy, forward upper engine cowl, and the wing/fuselage attachment (none of them fit!). I was originally going to do a ton of weathering on this, but after all the fit problems, massive putty, and sanding, I pretty much lost interest and just wanted to finish the darn thing. Painted with MRP (aka Mr Paint), which is exceptional paint, AMT-7, 11, & 12. Done OOB with kit decals.
  13. Hi, Like most of my recent WIP thread, it's about a build that i've started for a while. But i just try to FINISH things ! So, it's the Special Hobby kit, it will be built OOB, except the decals (Begemot) and a few small additions or rather replacement. It will be a Dux made Nieuport 11, with the dull silver grey paint typical of russian built Nieuport and with a skull on the rudder (badass !), and quite dirty. The kit is quite good, like any other Special Hobby kit (i love them !), but let's be honnest, that's not Wingnut Wings. However, i'm sure that it can give a great model t
  14. As I have a bit of a soft spot for the Yakovlev piston fighters, I wanted to build the new Special Hobby Yak-3 kit for a while. I am actually building this kit in the "From Russia with love" GB which commences on Saturday at Britmodeller, but I hope it is ok I showing my progress here as well. I was undecided in what colour scheme to paint the model. I didn't like to make a Normandie-Niemen Yak-3 in this scale as I prefer to make one in 1/48 as a companion to my Yak-1 build which still needs to be completed. Fortunately Begemot decals released their new 1/32 sheet on the Yak-3 earlier this
  15. Started a new project, that I had in mind for some time. In short: A Yak-3 1/32 with a scratch built engine. Since there is no Klimov VK-105 engine in 1/32 on the market and not wanting to use an Allison or Merlin, I choose the challenging way. :-) In getting this done, I use the 1/48 Klimov engine from the Zvedva kit as a template/master. Progress hasn´t got very far. Working on the engine block. For the cockpit I got the ip from Yahu. Fantastic details. I am still waiting for some PE sets for the interior and the flaps (not sure if I display them open). Additionally I ordered some n
  16. Another Special Hobby kit reviewed today - their second release of the Yakovlev Yak 3. Really nice kit that shouldn't take too long to put together! Iain
  17. We take a look at Special Hobby's recently released Tempest Mk.V "HI-TECH 2" kit, with it's top half rendition of the distinctive Napier Sabre engine. A great package, and excellent value in my opinion... Iain
  18. Hello All, according to Special Hobby's CEO, they have started to consider Ar-96... Source is http://ipmsnymburk.com/forum/viewtema.php?ID_tema=12168, use google translate, comment #8410.
  19. Hello, Special hobby is announcing this: http://www.specialhobby.net/2017/03/sh32065-fokker-dii-132-pripravujeme.html Kit is about to produced in similar technology as Bristol M.1.
  20. First frames finished: http://www.specialhobby.net/2016/07/sh32067-yakovlev-yak-3-132-prvni-vylisek.html Looks very tempting...
  21. Ok ... So LSP_Paul is doing the HpH Helldiver review ... but who's doing the Tempest ... and whoever you are, can you do a comparison with the PCM kit? Rog
  22. I am not sure, if this was already published here: Special Hobby is preparing their Yak-3 for the second half of 2016 http://www.mpmkits.net/2016/02/jak-3-132-pripravujeme-na-druhou.html
  23. Hi ! My last finished build. Like most of my last models, it has been started for a while, but was put aside to build something else. So it's the Special Hobby P-36A Pearl Harbor defender kit, built OOB. I just corrected the gunsight, buidling from scratch a new correct gunsight + reflector, thanks to Waroff's informations. Same for the windscreen rods. The painting was done with Alclad gloss black base thouroughly polished and then some AK interactive mixes, mostly based on polished aluminium. The decal set is from Yellow Wings, very nice set, but the decal quality (Microscale) was
  24. Evening ladies and gents! I fancied me a flame thrower and after adding everything including the kitchen sink it felt like to my last WIP, I figured I would go with something not really seen much before, and something I could go completely OOB on. This will be my OOB (except maybe for a set of low viz masks) attempt at the Special Hobby 1/32nd T-2C Buckeye, in the low viz camo of the NAS Oceana Aggressors. Here is the scheme Ill be going for: The Kit: This is a new tool kit from SH and a first for the T-2 in 32nd. I have not seen in person the 48th scale version of t
