Hello,

 

the first model of MPM / Special Hobby to be presented here on the LSM forum seems to be our new Fiat G.50.

I am glad to bring you now the brilliant box-arts and other pictures. Enjoy :-)

Wow Petr! I think you have sold at least two already! When will this be released?

That looks superb, and very clean. It's about time we saw this in kit form.

What's the release date.

Very nice! Never quite understood why PCM did the G.50 in 1/48 when all their other Italians are in 1/32. Looking forward to this one!

Great to see some more pics of it, the engine looks great. Both kits are available on Backorder at Hannants for a very nice price, got the Italian on order.

Dear Grant, I am sorry, our models are available at Hannants, so please, you will have to try and contact them, as they are our exklusive distributors in the UK. Thank you.

 

 

And many thanks to all of you for your very kind comments

Hi
I'm posting from my phone so can't insert a link but for those wondering, the price is £33.57 from Hannants
That seems pretty damn good value to me
I may have to get one of these rather ugly but curiously appealing birds!

Yep, that's the price if you place it on "Backorder" - you get 10% off the normal price which is still very good.

Looks great!

Anyway I don't understand why many kit farmers, like Special Hobby does, continue to make engine cowlings divided in two unrealistic parts!

Limitations of injection moulding process I imagine. Not a problem in assembly though.

Limitations on the molding process almost certainly. 

 

But hey, two is better than four!
