Special Hobby have announced that Planet Models are set to release their 1:48 full resin kit of the General Aircraft Hotspur Mk. II which has been in development for several years.

All resin model kit of the British WW2 trainer glider. At the beginning, the Hotspur was being developed as an assault glider capable of carrying airborne troops. As the type did not possess the required capacity, it was redesigned to serve in the training role instead, and designated the Hotspur Mk.II. Had it not been for so very large number of glider pilots trained on Hotspur, the Normandy invasion would not have developed the way it eventually did. 

Our nicely detailed kit offers, besides the resin parts, also a clear vacuum-formed canopy, clear resin fuselage windows, white metal undercarriage legs and a decal sheet with markings for two options.

Kit #PLT211 will be available from Special Hobby soon - Price: 62.30 Euros
