I believe these guys also produce the Attack squadron models.  Models are cast with resin, with patterns printed in 3D.

Have just announced release of a 1/48 PZL P.1:

Nice to finally see the KC-130 being addressed in 1:48th scale. 

This also means that you can build other C-130 variants such as the MC-130/HC-130 with the IFR pods.

There's a lot of discussion about that aircraft over on SPF, but I find it a bit odd that it has all this stealth features built into it but then has this honking great big hot engine sticking out the back.

Mind you a thought has just come into my head, it sort of looks like the speculated shape of the new B-21 ---

Tried to find that on line, but couldn't get any results. I think Arma Hobby and Arma Models are two different companies though.

I read similar comments on the un-stealthy design of the engine. Maybe it is proof-of-concept for some technologies and that the stealthy engine design will come in another model.

Perhaps designed for frontal and side stealth aspects only and not concerned with the rear aspect.  JASSM is stealthy in frontal and side aspects whereas it's predecessor in development, TSSAM, was all aspects stealthy.

I was thinking the same.  Perhaps the argument is that they only needed the LO effects as its coming towards the target as after the fact you already know they're around...

You can use Google translate if you don't understand the Russian or Ukrainian text. As long as you can read Cyrillic text, you can type it in the Western alphabet and Google translate will figure it out.

For instance, предзаказ = predzakaz = pre-order
