CASA C-212-300/400 'Long Nosed Casas' 1/72 scale airplane kit - Special Hobby model.- high levels of detail- interesting color combinations of unusual operatorsIn the late 1960s, the Spanish Air Force began looking for a model to replace the then widely used transport aircraft, of which the longest-lived were the Ju-52s built in the 1930s. The military requirements issued called for a new type of transport and multi-purpose aircraft, and to meet these requirements, the CASA company presented the concept of a twin-engine, turboprop, high-wing aircraft with a fixed wing and STOL capability. The design known as CASA C.212 Aviocar was accepted and mass production was started in both Spain and Indonesia, there under license. The first batches all had a short forward fuselage and were powered by various types of engines, the next type designated C.212-300 sported a longer fuselage, wings with fins, more powerful engines, the TPE331-10R-513C and different propellers. The year 1998 saw the introduction of the C.212-400 with TPE331-12JR-701C engines, updated avionics and a larger payload. It is no exaggeration to say that C.212s fly all over the world, and the list of operators could seem almost endless. C.212s continue to fly with the militaries of the U.S. (C-41), Mexico, Central and South America (Panama, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Argentina), in Europe, they have flown or are still flying in Sweden, Spain, Portugal, France, Malta, in Africa they can be found from the far north to the southernmost tip, flying for example with Chad, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbwabe among others. Over there in Australia, C.212s are used in the training of local Red Barrets and also at the Australian Antarctic Division of the Department of the Environment, which operates them in Antarctica. And in Asia, the model flies with operators in Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam or the Philippines, among others. The model kit portrays the long-nosed variety and offers markings of the No.44 Sqn A SAAF aircraft flown in South Africa, a Venezuelan airframe in service with the Escuadrón Aeronaval de Patrullaje Marítimo, and an aircraft based in Argentina with the colors of the Prefectura Naval (Coast Guard).

Scale: 1/72
Nation: France
Period: Modern
Type: Aircraft
Category Kit

Mirage F.1 CR aircraft kit in 1/72 scale - Special Hobby model. The Mirage F.1 owes its creation to a private initiative of the French company Dassault. The Armée de l'Air ordered the construction of two prototypes named Mirage F.2 and F.3 with JTF10 engines. However, Dassault built at its own expense another prototype with smaller dimensions and an Atar 9K engine. This prototype was chosen and first took off on December 23, 1966, and the production airframes were introduced into the Armée de l'Air armament as single-seat Mirage F.1C fighters and two-seat Mirage F.1B training fighters. During service, part of the Mirage F.1 machines were modified by adding a refueling probe to the Mirage F.1C-200 version. The French Air Force also used two reconnaissance versions, the Mirage F. 1CR and the Mirage F.1-200 converted Mirage F.1CT. The Armée de l'Air received a total of 246 examples of all versions of the Mirage F.1. The Mirage F.1 also became a successful export product. It entered service in Europe, Spain and Greece. In South America, Ecuador became the sole user, while in Africa and Asia the Mirage F.1 was included in the armament of Gabon, South Africa, Morocco, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Qatar and Kuwait. As a result, Mirage F.1s have been involved in many conflicts around the world, from non-firefighting between Greek fighters and Turkish adversaries, through French actions in Chad, conflicts on the Ecuadorian border with Peru, South African Mirages fighting Cuban aircraft from Angola, and participation in the war against Iraq, where Mirage F.1s flew on both fronts. Even today the Mirage F.1 is in service in several countries. The Mirage F.1CR version was flown only by the Armée de l'Air and was the last to be phased out in June 2014. At that time, the last unit to use this version was phased out, the Escadron de Reconnaissance 2/33 Savoie. Prior to that, Mirage F.1CRs had been deployed to Chad, Iraq, Afghanistan, Serbia, Mali and Libya.

F-84F Thunderstreak 'Operation Musketeer/Kadesh' 1/72 Scale Aircraft Kit - Set SPECIAL HOBBY The F-84F Thunderstreak swept-wing jet fighter was a development of the Republic F-84G straight-wing aircraft. The use of a swept-wing along with a more powerful jet engine improved performance over that of the F-86 Sabre. Initially, the F-84F encountered several problems with thrusters, maneuverability, and corrosion. Later, after the outbreak of the Berlin Crisis and the consequent need to upgrade NATO forces, F-84F jets began to equip many NATO air forces, including those of Germany and France, whereas previously these aircraft were used mainly by the USAF. and U.S. Guard units. The first combat deployment seen by the F-84F occurred during the Suez Crisis, and the only aerial victories achieved by this model were by Turkish aircraft facing Iraqi Il-28 bombers violating Turkish airspace. French F-84Fs flew from French bases and during Operation Musketeer in 1956 also from bases in Cyprus and Israel. Those flying from Israeli bases temporarily wore IAF national markings instead of the standard French roundels. This package of our highly detailed F-84F model offers a diagram of an aircraft flown in France plus two participants in Operation Musketeer, one of which is with Israeli stars. - excellent and very well detailed model, built like a dream - extra large decal sheet with full stencils - colored diagrams

Brand SPECIAL HOBBY
Scale: 1/32
Nation: United Kingdom
Period: WWII
Type: Aircraft
Category Kit

  Hi-tech Westland Whirlwind FB MK.I 'Fighter Bomber' kit in 1/32 scale - Special Hobby model kit - Equipped model kit of the highest level containing multi-material accessory set - two sheets of decals - eye-catching color schemes and markings Not long before the outbreak of World War II, the British Air Ministry issued a requirement for two types of fighter aircraft, one light with machine gun armament and the other with heavy gun armament. To meet these requirements, machine-gun-armed Hurricanes and Spitfires were designed, while to fit the second category, Westland offered its twin-engine Whirlwind "Cannon Fighter." This type was eventually produced in more than a hundred examples, and subsequent production was interrupted only by a shortage of Peregrine engines. Whirlwinds were deployed to the English Channel on fighter and ground attack missions. For the latter, Whirlwinds were equipped with bomb racks and were designated FB Mk.I. This modification proved to be very effective and it became more than clear that the Whirlwinds were indeed very well suited for these types of missions. Our model of the Whirlwind now comes in Hi-Tech format and contains ten styrene sprues, one with clear parts, a set of photoetched details, a set of 3D printed parts, and also resin parts. These details substantially enhance the cockpit area and also allow the nose section to be left open to advantageously show the armament of the four Hispano guns. The decal sheet offers markings for four green and gray RAF machines, two with 263 sq. m. and the other two with 137 sq. m. One of the schemes has a title under the canopy and another sports the striking black-and-white wing undersurfaces, the rings worn for Operation Stalker.

1/72 P-40M Warhawk 'Involuntarily from Russia to Finland' During World War II, the P-40M Warhawk fighter plane was used by both the USAAF and Allied air forces. Over two hundred were also delivered to the Soviet Union. The P-40M s/n 43-5925 White 23 saw only very brief service with the VVS (Soviet Air Force). While the new machine was being flown to the unit, its pilot, 2nd Lt. VARevin, got lost, landed on Finnish territory by mistake, and both machine and pilot were captured. The Finnish Army was reluctant to put the machine into operational service, the Finnish pilots of HLe.Lv.32 were of the opposite opinion, however, brought the machine into airworthy condition and flew it secretly, which eventually came to light and the Curtiss was officially approved for military use and flew until the end of the war. The P-40M kit comes with three styrene sprues, one of which contains transparent parts. All offer the highest quality and detail overall. The decal sheet shows the original Soviet-piloted White 23 markings with red stars and silver tail, and the aircraft markings in two different Finnish patterns. - superbly detailed model, very easy to build - interesting color combinations with a breathtaking history - masks, accessory sets and characters available separately

1/72 Spitfire Mk.22/24 and Seafire Mk.46/47 MASK (for Special Hobby)- The Supermarine Spitfire was a single-seat, single-engine, low-wing fighter aircraft produced by the British firm Supermarine Aviation Works in the 1930s and 1940s. Employed in Europe, North Africa, Australia and Asia, it became one of the iconic aircraft of World War II mainly because of its effective and decisive contribution to the victorious British resistance to German aggression, during the Battle of Britain and the conflict years.In the Battle of Britain, it shared with the Hawker Hurricane the difficult task of defending territory from Luftwaffe attacks. Employed by the airforces of numerous Allied countries - such as the Soviet Union, Australia and the United States of America - it was the only Allied fighter produced for the duration of the war.Made in some 40 different versions, it is probably the aircraft with design and construction evolution superior to any other model, in the entire history of flight.Including the 2,556 Seafire, 20,351 examples were produced until 1947, when the last Mk.24 rolled off the assembly lines. After the war it was still employed for a long time by the air forces of France, the Netherlands, Greece, Turkey, Belgium, India, Italy and Czechoslovakia.The RAF's last operational frontline mission was carried out on April 1, 1954 by a PR19 Spitfire reconnaissance aircraft of No. 81 RAF Squadron. But the Spitfire continued to be used for three more years by Temperature and Humidity Flight, for meteorological measurements, until June 1957, when it was discharged.It was considered by British ace Johnnie Johnson "the best conventional defensive fighter of the war."- The Supermarine Seafire was a low-wing, embarked fighter aircraft produced by the British company Supermarine Aviation Works, Ltd in the 1940s.Named after the contraction of Sea Spitfire, it was a navalized version of the famous Spitfire previously produced by the company and adapted to operate aboard British Royal Navy aircraft carriers during World War II.

1/72 Nakajima Ki-43-II Ko/Otsu 'Japan's allies'The Nakajima Ki-43 also identified as the Type 1 Fighter Aircraft and by the popular name Hayabusa "Peregrine Falcon," allied identification name: Oscar, was a single-engine, low-wing tactical fighter aircraft produced by the Japanese company Nakajima Hikoki KK from the latter part of the 1930s.Design began in December 1937 in response to a request from the Imperial Japanese Army for a successor to the Nakajima Ki-27. The new fighter was to have, among other features, a retractable undercarriage but, at the same time, the Army Air Force Command demanded that the maneuverability qualities remain unchanged from those of the Nakajima Ki-27, which could only be achieved with a lighter fixed undercarriage.Nakajima Ki-43.The designers, led by Hideo Hitokawa,opted for a retractable assembly and the prototype of the new fighter made its first flight in January 1939. Equipped with a 925-hp Nakajima Ha 25 star engine and armed with two 7.7-mm machine guns, the plane proved to meet the requirements. Maneuverability, however, was inferior to that of the Nakajima Ki-27, and for a time its fate hung in the balance.The Army finally decided to allow design studies to continue, and a series of aircraft with various modifications in the powerplant and armament were had. The program to improve the maneuverability of the aircraft led to a slimmer fuselage and the introduction of deflectors located on the inside of the wing. The latter arrangement significantly improved the maneuverability of the Nakajima Ki-43, especially in turning, and the military authorities were satisfied with the performance of the new aircraft.In April 1941 the Army ordered production of this aircraft with the Army Type 99 star engine, the final version of the Ha 25, and the first deliveries took place in October of that year.the Ki-43 was completely unknown when Allied pilots first encountered it. Like the Zero, the Ki-43 was light and easy to fly. It was a simple and agile machine with a cockpit that provided excellent visibility.
