MAVAG Heja II - Special Hobby 1/72
« on: September 29, 2011, 06:19:12 PM »
Hi lads,

This is the second kit finished this year. A really lovely kit, it was a quite straightforward build. I still don't like the way the gun blast tubes ended up looking, though, they should be smaller. But the sole thought of ungluing them gives me the creeps.

Enjoy the pictures!

Thanks! It's a beautiful family of airplanes and deserves to have their place in a modeling collection, I believe.

Gorgeous result, Javier! An excellent machine.

I've had the idea in the back of my mind for some years to have a line-up of a P-35, Re.2000 and Heja all together.

Great looking build and nice plane - Hungarian flags really stand out on stabilisers
I have Re.2000 series I and III in stash, but not the Heja version...

Thanks S.A.F.

I've had that same idea for years. Luckily, Special Hobby and MPM are releasing a brand new mold on their P-35 anytime soon, so with a little effort we can have now the full flightline.

Thank you for your kind words, Profa.

Only a couple of resin parts, vacuform and plastic pieces change from one to the other, and any of them makes fro a great build. The folks at Special Hobby did a great job on that series of kits. Try them, they're great!
