Default Hobbymaster March 2020 releases.



A mix of new announcements and previously announced stuff.

My take:

1/48 P-47 "Bonnie" = immediate pre-order.
F-15s - pretty boring
1/72 F-16 Zeus. Crap. I might need to get my first greek aircraft.
JASDF XF-2B - boring.
1/72 Su-25s. Two similar russian ones. Not for me.
1/72 WW F-105G - pre-ordered previously
1/72 JASDF Blue Impulse Sabre with.. . new wing? Anyway, i've preordered it.
1/72 Battle of Midway x 2 SBDs. Nice releases, but the price/value ratio on these things have gone into low, especially since HM has never modified the tooling of their SBD to have a tail gun, which is scandalous.
1/72 A-10 yawn.
1/72 A-20G - little joe. nice release, but I have enough of these lovely little models.

Syrian Frogfoot is interesting..........................Only wanted one example of the airframe, which I bought the Ukrainian digital one, but this has seen combat.

The F-105G and A-20G are both examples of which can be found in the National Museum of the USAF. Since I collect around that theme, guess they will be pre-ordered!

JASDF XF-2B: the only interesting model this month.

Scheme reminds me one of the most sought-after Corgi Tornados - Luftwaffe Marine.

Just a shame that HM once again went - typically for HM - the easiest way and didn´t choose more interesting, more common and much more photographed scheme with ´crash dummy symbols´ (black/white 4-quadrant targets) and yellow lettering under the windshield, at least on one from these two split runs. Maybe they can still make it if more collectors ask:


Looking forward how will HM manage the yellow painted leading edges on dorsal antennas

Wow! What a conundrum......it's interesting that HM would release the Greek Zeus while the Herpa version is still on the market. Hmmmmm

Perhaps someone here has the Herpa version and will buy the HM version to do a side by side walk around comparison

Another safe month of nothing exciting.

Already have the Corgi 1:72 version of the Bonnie Jugg so no need for the 1/48 version.
