Arma Hobby has announced at the Babaryba Warsaw Modelling Festival that they will be releasing soon a new tool 1:48 scale Bell P-39 Airacobra

Announcement of the P-39 Airacobra 1/48 model kit


We are pleased to announce the Bell P-39Q Airacobra aircraft model kit in 1/48 scale. This is a completely new product with new plastic sprues from Arma Hobby.

What's in the box?

The kit we present as the first one contains decals and markings for the Q version, but the sprues allow you to build "straight from the box" also the other main versions of the aircraft: from P-39D/P-400 to P-39N and Q. The set includes three propeller and nose variants, bombs, fuel tanks, two types of nose wheel and various armament variants. The lavish cockpit interior is clearly visible through the open doors. The front wheel leg can be easily installed after painting the entire model - just one click and a drop of glue. The stability of the model is ensured by the convenient loading of steel balls (included).

Kit pre-order

The P-39 Airacobra model kit is undergoing final corrections of the test sprues. Apart from the sprues, all elements of the first 1/48 P-39Q boxing are already waiting in our warehouse. We expect the kits to be shipped in the second half of June. Pre-order will start in the first week of June and will include promotional bundles with several kits, free resin seats with belts (3D printed) and a large selection of 3D files with accessories for self-printing.
