Special Hobby's 1/32 scale
Fieseler Fi 103 V-1
Flying Bomb

by Brett Green

Fieseler Fi 103 V-1 Flying Bomb

Meng's 1/48 scale F-35A Lightning II is available online from Squadron for USD$59.99




This will almost certainly be my last completed model for 2018 - Special Hobby's 1/32 scale Fi 103 V-1 flying bomb.

Special Hobby supplies the handling trolley and the wings may be removed for transport thanks to a working spar.



This is a really nice model and quite a decent size in 1/32 scale. At first I thought I'd just chuck it together but the more I worked on it, the more I thought it justified proper attention, especially at the painting stage.



The only issues I encountered were some fuselage locating holes that are solid (a few minutes drilling out fixed this), and the very delicate decals, about three quarters of which folded back on themselves during application. Might have been me though! 

Great kit though, and it would be a striking display piece alongside your 1/32 scale Special Hobby Tempest.



I am writing this one up in detail for Issue 95 of Military Illustrated Modeller magazine.
