Special Hobby 1/72 Bf 109E-7Trop (SH72462)

Today we are going to talk about Special Hobby 1/72 Bf 109E-7Trop (SH72462). As you can guess from the name, kit offers yet another version of the famous German aircraft. It is still molded in small scale and shouldn't take a lot of space. I hope you saw previous releases as it was evident that plastic kit is good. Packaging is typical for this brand, all frames come in one plastic bag. Let's open it and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with Ju 87 kit in the same scale.

We are going to start with the sprue which carries mix of various parts. Here you will find cockpit elements as well as landing gear bits. Note that even the thinnest parts are molded without any issues.

Second frame features fuselage halves, wing parts and fuel tank. Wing mechanization is molded separately, what might be handy for some modelers.

Yes, there is also an engine supplied, and you can expose it on your model. It is a great bonus to have in such small model.

Clear frame comes in the separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks clean and you can copy an open cockpit with those parts.

Decals sheet is not that big, but features all necessary symbols for four markings. Printing quality looks fine, and you will find cockpit decals here.

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

New kit should be already available for purchase. In one box you will get a great small kit which should turn into a nice copy of the German fighter. Moreover, don't forget about original accessories - those will help you add even more features on this small build. I like what Special Hobby did here, and this kit deserves to be named as one of the best in its scale.
