Special Hobby 1/72 DH.100 Vampire FB Mk.9 (SH72455)

This time we have a chance to check Special Hobby 1/72 DH.100 Vampire FB Mk.9 (SH72455). This is a new version, which is named as "Tropicalised Fighter-Bomber". As result, you will get new markings and good kit in the popular scale. Packaging is typical for this manufacturer, all frames come in one plastic bag. Let's open it and take a closer look together.

Watch this video-review with even more detailed look at parts.

First frame is dedicated to fuselage halves and wing parts. Note that fuselage is divided in horizontal axis.

External features include recessed panel lines and rivets. Note also thin attachment points which should be easy to separate.

Tail sections should be glued out of two halves. Note that main wheel wells are molded in.

Yes, minor engine features are copied on this tab. This is more than enough for such small scale model.

Here you can take a closer look at wing features.

Pilot seat comes as single-piece part. Note that nose cone is also provided in form of one part.

Clear frame is packed into separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks nice, but there are no masks included. You will have to buy them separately.

Decals sheet features all necessary symbols for five markings. Printing quality looks good. You can see all camouflages on the photo below.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. I show all pages in the video-review.

Small Vampire in today's version is another great offer in 1/72 scale. In my opinion it is a good model to build for all fans of this size. Yes, such design might be a bit tricky for beginners, but I think some experience would be enough. Moreover, there are some original accessories which might add more features to this Vampire. The only question is how much do you want to invest into such project.
