The Polish manufacturer has re-boxed its recent 1/72 Airacobra parts with new decals and paint masks.
Arma Hobby has quickly forged a reputation for stunningly detailed 1/72 World War Two fighters. It released its new-tool P-39Q last year and soon after matched it with the same-scale F4F-4 Wildcat in a dual boxing. Now, the runners have appeared again, along with fresh decals for a quartet of P-39N schemes, which are:
• 42-9033/White 01, Grigoriy Dol’nikov, 100th Guards Fighter Regiment, Soviet Air Force, April-May 1945
• 42-18354, 345th Fighter Squadron, 350th Fighter Group, Sardinia/Corsica, spring 1944
• 42-18736, Cdt Jean Machet de la Martinière, CO of GC 1/4 ‘Navarre’, Rerhaia aierfield, Algeria, March 1944
• 42-9033/White 01, Ivan Babak, 100th Guards Fighter Regiment, Soviet Air Force, 1943-45
All airframes wear Olive Drab over Neutral Gray – and paint masks for the wheels and glazing are included, along with steel ball-bearing nose weights. Here, Arma’s decals are as beautifully printed as ever, and the sheet includes instrument panel decals and seatbelts. It costs €26.50 direct from Arma Hobby but is also available in the UK via Hannants for £29.99.
