#607 PZL P.7a
Building the Arma Hobby PZL P.7a 1:72 expert set. No electronics added - just enjoying this wonderfully detailed kit.
The PZL P.7a was the main fighter for the Polish Air Force in the early 1930’s.
The Arma Hobby 70006 PZL P.7a Expert Set 1/72 is the first kit I’ve bought from this manufacturer. I have heard really good things about them, and I was certainly not disappointed. The expert set is beautifully put together and includes everything needed to produce a great rendering of this interesting aircraft from the interwar years.
There are four schemes offered in the kit. I’ve decided to build:
PZL P.7a, 123. Eskadra Myśliwska z Krakowa. Samolot dowódcy Eskadry kpt. pil. Mieczysława Wiórkiewicza, 1935-1936. (PZL P.7a, 123. Fighter Squadron from Cracow. The aeroplane of the Squadron commander, Cpt. Mieczysław Wiórkiewicz, 1935-1936)
