At the Babaryba 2023 Warsaw Scale Model Festival, Martin Waligorski from the iModeler portal had the opportunity to examine and photograph the new Arma Hobby 1/48 Hurricane IIC model assembled from test mouldings. As a result, he published an extensive and – which makes us very happy – extremely positive preview of the model kit, which will soon be in the hands of modellers.
„Upon first look, one thing becomes immediately apparent: this is not an up-scaled 1/72 Hurricane kit from the same company. This new kit is – well, brand new, and designed from the outset to take full advantage of the plastic medium in this larger scale.”
“The rivet detail is so petite that you’d be pushed hard to see the difference between the raised and recessed rivets with a naked eye, and initially I was only able to distinguish between them by drawing a tip of my finger across the surface to feel which detail is raised.”
“Arma Hobby’s 1/48 Hurricane IIc has been long in the waiting, but now it’s here – and what a kit it is. I was very impressed by all the detail, the riveting and the thoughtful breakdown of the kit – but even more so by the obsessive attention paid by the kit’s designers to render even the smallest detail of the real airplane.”
