Newsletter Special Hobby 4/2018

The April newsletter includes, among others, other CMKs for J2M Raiden / Jack and modeling forums for a widely acclaimed novel, an Indian elephant on a 1/48 scale. The Special Hobby models are three. The long-awaited two-seater Viggen has a box of new parts, some of which repair defects of one-piece versions. Tempest Mk.VI 1/32 is the latest version of Tempest that we have not yet published. And Fokker D.II will surely be fascinated by camouflage on the same scale.
For lovers of the scale 1/72 this time we offer four Simple Set models, ie. models with instructions without decals, only in a plastic bag. The price is uniform for these models and no discounts apply.
In May, we offer you a Barracuda render in Home Fleet (SH72306), as well as another Color Barracuda (SH72343). We will also launch the first Vampire version of the Vampire MK.I 'The First Jet Guardians of Neutrality' SH72339. He will offer the Vampire in Swedish and Swiss colors.

Hawker Tempest Mk.VI 1/32

Art.no. Scale Barcode
100-SH32055 1/32 8594071086534

In the course of World War II air combat, both warring parties had to respond to the introduction of new, more powerful types of enemy aircraft. The deployment of the new German Fw 190 fighter in 1941 brought not only the rapid development of the new versions of the Spitfire fighter, but also the accelerated introduction of new Hawker Typhoon Mk.I fighters into the regular service. The introduction of the Typhoons was very complicated, and since it soon turned out that Typhoon had some limitations as a fighter, Hawker Sydney Camm started to develop an improved version. Due to the number of changes, this new fighter got the name Tempest. And she has become one of the best fighters of the Second World War. After the Tempest Mk.V and Mk.II versions of the Mk.VI version was launched. Even though it happened during the Second World War, the Tempests Mk.VI fought only in later conflicts. Especially in the Middle East. Tempest Mk.VI was designed for tropical conditions. It was equipped with a more powerful version of the Saber Mk.V and compared with the Tempest Mk.V version with a larger cooler and oil cooler and carburettor suction at the wings of the wings. The plastic parts are divided into eight frames of gray plastic and one frame of clear parts. The surface of the large parts is covered with fine rivets. Building a model will guide you through a detailed color guide of A4 format. Directions and three decal sheets offer a choice of four camouflage. Camo A features also include complete labels for Tempest, including interior and extra label labels. The plastic parts are divided into eight frames of gray plastic and one frame of clear parts. The surface of the large parts is covered with fine rivets. Building a model will guide you through a detailed color guide of A4 format. Directions and three decal sheets offer a choice of four camouflage. Camo A features also include complete labels for Tempest, including interior and extra label labels. The plastic parts are divided into eight frames of gray plastic and one frame of clear parts. The surface of the large parts is covered with fine rivets. Building a model will guide you through a detailed color guide of A4 format. Directions and three decal sheets offer a choice of four camouflage. Camo A features also include complete labels for Tempest, including interior and extra label labels.


SK-37E Stör-Viggen 1/48

Art.no. Scale Barcode
100-SH48150 1/48 8594071086558

SAAB 37 Viggen is an airplane ahead of its time. The unorthodox solution, chosen by its designers, not only allowed Viggen to meet the requirements imposed on him, but in some parameters he surpassed them. The Swedish Air Force ordered Viggen in several versions, with the basic design of the airplane forming a universal platform, complemented by special equipment allowing it to be used in several roles. The first of seven prototypes took off on February 8, 1967, driven by E. Dalsröm. Electronic equipment was one of the best in the world, Viggen was the first machine with a built-in computer with integral circuits. The AJ 37 Viggen version of the AJ 37 Viggen was first included in the equipment of the Swedish Air Force, followed successively by the SK 37 – two-seater training fighter aircraft, SF 37 – a reconnaissance version with photographers in a modified bow, SH-37 – anti-roll version with different electronic equipment and anti-weapon equipment. Approximately ten years after the first version was released, the second-generation Viggen, the JA 37 fighter, was produced. It got modernized electronic equipment and a stronger engine in a slightly elongated hull. Older versions were also upgraded by more modern electronic equipment, the AJS 37 or ASFS and ASHS 37 machines were rebuilt. Part of the two-seat training machines were rebuilt to the SK-37E electronic guiding and training version. The version for electronic combat, in Sweden called Stör-Viggen, is now available in the model. The model is divided into 11 frames of which are two clear, contains etchings for exterier and interior of this version. Against the Viggen single version (Special Hobby SH48148 and SH48188 and the Tarangus version), this model offers a new box with repaired duck and APUs. Decals and instructions allow you to choose between three different machines. Two carry a classic frayed camouflage made of several colors, the third machine, decorated with lightning on the SOP, was flying in a two-tone, gray-gray camouflage.


Fokker D.II "Grünzweig`s Planes" 1/32

Art.no. Scale Barcode
100-SH32076 1/32 8594071086374

One-lane Fokkers EI to EII III dominated the sky in 1915 above the western front. Quite quickly, they were obsolete and against the new bipartisan allied fighters did not have the appropriate performance. German designers were forced to develop a suitable replacement quickly. Fokker's designer, M. Kreutzer, designed several variants of the M17 biplane. For serial production, the selected variant was named Fokker D.II. She was armed with one synchronized machine gun. The first of 181 produced pieces appeared on the queue in the summer of 1916. At the front, Fokker D.II survived until August 1917. But at the end of 1916, they were assigned to units operating on less exposed parts of the queue or to protecting industrial centers from allied air raids. The model consists of three frames of plastic parts, two are made with a short run technology, the small parts frame is molded from a metal mold. They are complemented by a plane of etchings and a windblok of a clear foil. Decals offer two machines. Both machines were Lt. Fritz Grünzweig, a fighter pilot, a well-known jerk, and a great painter and cartoonist. Both machines were decorated with a muzzle and eyes and were one of the most varied Fokkers D.II.
