Fouga CM.170 Magister 1/72 - SPECIAL HOBBY SH72490
SKU MPMS72490
Brand SPECIAL HOBBY
Scale: 1/72
Nation: France
Period: Modern
Type: Aircraft
Category Kit

Fouga CM.170 Magister 'Aerobatic Teams' 1/72 Scale Aircraft Kit - Model SPECIAL HOBBY The Fouga Magister was not only an excellent training jet, it was also an excellent aerobatic machine used by many aerobatic patrols. This version of the Magister covers the patterns of the Belgian Red Devils, the French Patrouille de Ecolé de l'Air and the German FFS A Acro squadron. All of these airframes wore truly amazing and colorful patterns. In addition to serving with the French Army, the Magister was also an export success for Fouga, which sold it to a multitude of foreign operators and was even built under license in three countries. The first licensed-built Magisters entered service with the air forces of Germany and Finland in 1958, where they also joined the French-built Magisters, and the third licensed manufacturer of the Magister was Israel, which produced its first aircraft in 1960. Israeli Magisters were known locally as Tzukit (or Thrush) and in addition to basic training were also used in the light attack role where they proved effective during many Arab-Israeli conflicts. In the ground attack role the Magister could carry a pair of machine guns mounted in the forward section and various weapons were mounted under the wings in the form of bombs and unguided rockets. In Europe the Magister was used by France, Belgium, Austria, and Ireland, but there were also many other operators around the world in Africa, Asia, and South America, many of whom were no doubt attracted by its lightweight design and low operating costs. Among these distant operators were countries such as Algeria, Bangladesh, Biafra, Brazil, El Salvador, Libya, Morocco, Togo, and Uganda. Some Fouga are still flying these days, many of them in civilian hands. The model comes with four gray styrene power channels with nicely detailed parts plus one with transparent parts.

The Whirlwind was distinguished by its advanced and aerodynamic design, which included a tapered nose and a wing-mounted engine configuration.Operational UseFirst Flight: October 11, 1938Introduction into Service: 1940RAF Squadrons: The Whirlwind was operated primarily by No. 263 Squadron RAF.Role: The Whirlwind was primarily a fighter-bomber, capable of ground attack and intercept missions. It was known for its firepower due to its four 20 mm cannons, which made it particularly effective against ground and air targets.Strengths and WeaknessesStrengths:Powerful armament: The four 20-mm cannons were one of the heaviest configurations available on a fighter at the time.Speed and maneuverability: The Whirlwind was fast and maneuverable, with good ground attack capability.Weaknesses:Engine reliability problems: The Rolls-Royce Peregrine engines, although advanced, suffered from reliability and maintenance problems.Limited Production: Only about 114 were built due to production difficulties and concentration on developments of other fighters such as the Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane.Withdrawal from ServiceThe Whirlwind began to be withdrawn from service in 1943, with the last examples removed in 1944. Its relatively short career and limited production made it less well known than other British World War II fighters, but it remains an interesting example of advanced aircraft design for the time.In summary, the Westland Whirlwind FB Mk.I was a British twin-engine fighter-bomber of World War II, featuring heavy armament and aerodynamic design, but limited by engine reliability and production problems.

F-84F Thunderstreak 'Reborn Luftwaffe' aircraft kit in 1/72 scale - SPECIAL HOBBY set - each kit set contains a metal piece of the actual crashed F-84F - a truly excellent and finely detailed model - very simple assembly - interesting camouflage patterns and decals 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. The German Luftwaffe purchased 450 Thunderstreaks and used the aircraft within NATO between 1957 and 1966, when the remaining airframes were sold to Greece and Turkey. Two German aircraft crashed due to loss of orientation over Czechoslovakian territory; their pilots managed to eject in time. Each of the SH72505 model kits contains a tiny piece of those two destroyed aircraft along with a certificate. The decal sheet shows the markings of four Luftwaffe machines, one of which was the one crashed in Czechoslovakia.

The plane was powered by a Volvo RM8 turbofan, a license-built variant of the Pratt and Whitney JT8D with added afterburner and thrust reversing unit, which in addition to the double delta wing design improved the plane's performance in takeoffs and landings over short distances. runways. For better maneuverability with the Viggen on improvised airfields, to tow them into hangars, or even to hide them easily, the fin could be folded down. At the time, the avionics used in the Viggen were among the best in the world, and the VIggen was also the first aircraft with avionics equipped with integrated circuits. Initially, the Swedish Army received the AJ 37 version, followed gradually by the SK 37 two-seater trainer, the SF 37 - reconnaissance aircraft with cameras in the modified forward section, and the SH 37 anti-ship version with different avionics and capable of carrying air -maritime armament. About ten years after the first Viggen entered service, second-generation aircraft in the form of the JA 37 fighter followed. The first Viggen to serve in the ground attack role was the AJ 37 Viggen, later modified into the AJS 37 Viggen. One of these was painted in a general anniversary red scheme with lots of ghostly white figures and was called "Show Must Go On." This very attractive plane is now depicted in our latest version of Viggen.

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).

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

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
