Today we are starting a series of autumn new releases from Arma Hobby. Three new models are waiting in the queue. First goes an easy one – Hurricane Mk IIb. What makes this model special, and what additional options have we prepared for modellers? Let’s see!
Each model is a design challenge for us. We want it to be better than the previous one, to raise the bar a little higher for us. We chose the Hurricane IIb as the first of the three new releases planned for the end of the year. It is a version with 12 machine guns, mainly used in the “Hurribomber” configuration. We tested the “stressed skin effect” on the model, and the first conclusions show that it is necessary to design it more prominent in subsequent models.
The model includes two plastic frames, the first one from the Hurricane Mk IIc set, and the second with the Mk IIb version wing, and underwing stores: bombs and tanks. They provide the modeller with an option to build the model in the Hurribomber and Intruder variants. They make it a more combat, aggressive look to the profile of both the Mk IIc and Mk IIb versions. Additionally, the frame includes an early tail wheel and exhaust manifold for early Hurricane Mk II models.
