Having released various new-tool 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109Es since 2020, Special Hobby now turns its attention to the E-7 Trop version.
Special Hobby really raised the bar with its new 1/72 Bf 109E kits. The ‘109 is a small subject in this scale, and many previous kits suffered from limited detail. Those released thus far by Special hobby though offer much, from a complete engine with bearers and separate nose guns, and a well-appointed cockpit, to individual ailerons, slats and flaps.
With its latest iteration (SH 72462, ‘Braving Sand and Snow’) the firm provides a sublime model of the E-7 sub-type, renowned for its employment over North Africa, but also on the Eastern Front. This is reflected by the decal sheet.
