  1. #20/2017 After the JG54 G-6, here´s right away the next Hasegawa 109. Like with the other, also here Gunze and Tamiya acrylics used, EZ Line for aerials, plastic rods and lead wire for brake lines and cockpit fuel line, decals from RB Productions. Model shows an a/c of Grupul 7/9 Vanatoare in Piestany in January 1945. At that time Romania was already reached by the Red Army and fought along its side against the Germans. So yellow IDs changed to white and crosses to roundels.

  2. A-4 skyhawk questions ?

    Hello all im in a bit of a confusing spot here ? I have a 1/48th Hasegawa A-4K the “KIWI” version. Its a later square tail that as ive researched was a derivative of The A-4F. Itself an updated “E” if memory and research tell me. My question is im backdating this Skyhawk to an “E” and an early one at that used by the USMC in Vietnam. All the parts are in the kit already so not a lot of work. I know it needs the shorter tailpipe, round tail, no chaff dispenser underneath the tailpipe, & no avionics hump on top, but where i get hung up is Antennae's ? Im not sure the correct antennae's for an early “E” type, nor there placement. Is there a go to website or does anyone here know the answer ? Any help at all is always greatly appreciated. Dennis
  3. #19/2017 Some hype and non-hype about the new Tamiya G-6. My dad will definitely build one but he still has a bunch of good old Hasegawa kits in the stash which have to roll out. So here´s the first one, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, EZ Line for aerials, plastic rods and lead wire for brake lines and cockpit fuel line, decals from the kit and the Kagero book "Bf109G/K Vol.II". The model shows an a/c of IV/JG54 on the eastern front in winter 1943/44.

  4. Eduard next limited edition kit will a 1/32nd Curtiss P-40N Warhawk - ref. 11104 Source: https://www.eduard.com/store/out/media/distributors/leaflet/leaflet2017-07.pdf V.P.
  5. This is the Hasegawa/Minicraft 1/72 P2V-7 Neptune boxing from 1972 or 1973. I bought this second hand along with the Eduard PE and Mask set for it. Other than adding the PE, this will be an OOB build of the generic post WWII U. S. version in Navy Blue. I am hoping this to be an easy build as I need one after a couple of trying ones. Here is the box art and collection of sprues loose in the box It appears the fuselage halves have been taken off of the sprues and for some reason the locating pins have been sanded flush. I wonder if original owner didn’t realize what they were and thought they were sanding off sprue attachments? So, the prior owner has turned this into a short run kit without locating tabs, wonderful. So work begins with the cockpit. The kit is very basic with 2 seats, a floor and 2 bulkheads. There are also the pilot figures to help jazz it up, but I am totally rubbish at figure painting. So, I am hoping the Eduard PE set will help jazz this area up. I am not sure how much can be seen once the canopies are on, but looks to be very barren inside. First step is to locate the minimal floor console instrument panel and sand the detail down so the Eduard PE part can be attached. Next looking at the seats, there are some quite lovely and large injection marks that need to be dealt with. Next up the base coat of grey for the interior parts including the nose gear bay housing. I tried to come close to the colour on the PE and think it will blend in nice once a weather finish has been applied. A little bit of dirtying up and scuffing . . . Now to work on the PE stuff. There is a little box that sets at the rear of the seats on the rear bulkhead that has to be painted and bent into place. That fuzzy thing above it is the tip of a microbrush to give a sense of scale of this huge item. Why at my advanced age am I doing PE work on a 1/72 plane? I need magnifiers for my magnifier. Onto constructing the two control columns out of the PE. It consists of two pieces, the control column that has to be folded and the circular yoke. I have completed one and you can tell the size by the tweezer tip in the picture. Next up are the rudder pedals. Here is the PE part after painting, but prior to being folded. And here it is all folded up; only 3 more to go, yippee!! And all four looking somewhat uniform Now this is what the kit cockpit would look like if built straight out of the box. (Please ignore the center control PE part and imagine a really crappy, raised, blobby, plastic detail area.) No wonder there were figures to put in here. Otherwise, there would be nothing to see. I put the PE control panel in the starboard fuselage half and it fit quite nicely and jazzes the area up a bit. Now here is where I ran into problems. There are two PE side instrument columns that run between the fuselage wall and the cockpit seats. When I dry fit them, there is not enough room between the seats and the fuselage wall for them to fit. My choices are to cut down the instrument panel and lose some of its detail, or sand down the chunky seats to allow more room for the side control column. I decided on the latter. Did I dry fit prior to installing the seats and begin work on the seat belt placement; of course not. I didn’t get the prudent idea of checking the fit until the seats were firmly in place. So, I pried off the port seat and sanded both sides of it down, trying to not mess up the seat belts. I then placed the seat back and you can compare the size of the sanded seat to the original kit seat. The seat appearance is improved I think. The side console will now fit. I just have to pry up the other side and do that seat too. But, it is time to go to work to pay for my plastic addiction, so I must stop. All comments always welcome.
  6. At the weekend I was tidying out some things I have in storage and sorting through some stash duplicates, I came across this I never realised I had it as this stuff went into store some 5/6 years ago and I had forgotten about quite a few things (Fujimi Wasp, some CMR resin Seafires and a Fairey Delta prototype by Maquette amongst the gems). Looking back at my DH GB experience with the delightful ease of the Tamiya Mosquito against the taxing modelling of the Special Hobby Sea Hornet, I thought this could be a light diversion, with it's hoped 'shake and bake' build compared with the old Airfix kit currently on the go. There are three sprues and a transparency. The plastic isn't brilliantly crisp and there quite a few ejector pins but most seem not to be visible, apart from some on the undercarriage doors. The blue plastic is a nightmare as it is pretty dark. There are transfers for two Gloss Sea Blue options, one Hammy Gray's of the Pacific Fleet and one from an escort carrier of the East Indian Fleet (I think). They have yellowed and so have been popped on the window sill to get sun bleached. instructions are typical Hasegawa.
  7. This is the 3rd or 4th Hasegawa P-3C to be posted here in the last month or so. I am not sure of the reason for this. I would say great minds think alike, but I am not sure where I would fit in . Anyway here is my offering. I a a bit on happy with this build, not the fault of the kit, but related to my spaying. I wanted a nice gloss finish on the white, so I gave it several coats starting with a dry dusting and working up to a a wet heavy final coat with light sanding in between. This has worked fine in the past, but this time I was getting a lot of dust infiltration, and the occasional blob of paint. At one point a fairly large black spec of dust suddenly appeared and in a vain attempt to hide it under more paint I ended up with a drip, (sigh). This meant sanding idown and basically starting over. . I finally decided cut my losses and live with some specs. As far as the kit itself, it is from some pretty old molds and it shows with plenty of flash and raise panel lines, but the fit was good and while I can argue with some of the engineering it went together well and looks good. The decals worked well with virtually no silvering and look good. My only complaint is that they implemented to walkways, "no steps" and other line on the wings in 3 big decals. They were hard to work with and maneuver into position and had large clear areas. When first put down the clear areas severely wrinkled, but with several applications of MicroSol they flattened out. So on to the pictures; I used the Eduard interior, but with the small windows it is hard to see inside. Next up is the equally old Hasegawa OV-1A. Enjoy.
  8. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Mosquito Mk.XIII "Night Fighter" from 29. Squadron, 1945. Released as a "Limited Edition" boxing this summer, the kit contains resin parts for the wing tanks and nose. I added True Details wheels, but forgot to add the White "T" decal for the nose ... sorry. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. Photos by Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes. Greetings from Vienna!
  9. I had this one bought for me from SMW16 as a Christmas present from my Daughter. After a long think and a lot of planning I decided to build her as part of a comparison display between the TU-16, B-47 and Valiant. Ok so after a mornings work on her the B-47E fuselage has been closed up and the gear bays have been glued in. I'll update with photos in due course.
  10. Hi all. Some may say that this is a new build but in truth it's been around for about 18 months sitting on the shelf of inactivity. I've got a Super Hornet that's on the way but I'll post some photos of that when I get something substantial done that's worth showing. It was in separate top and bottom halves and wings yesterday and this is where I've managed to get it to today (Sunday afternoon). I made a jig to get the wings level which has worked well and will come in handy when mounting gear and other dangly bits. The gear bay has had its white though I now realise I didn't clean the mould seam on the o2??? tank,...that one's onto the fix list. I've also removed and replaced the poorly molded strengthening plates around the arrestor work. I've got some work to do to tidy up the wing root join though that's something that a bit Mr Surfacer won't fix. They're an old kit but the Hasegawa F-16's aren't too bad to put together. This one will be loaded with bombs, rockets and other explody things. Cheers. Mick It'll look something hopefully like this though with live weapons and wing tanks too.
  11. Hi peeps, Since I've been redoing all the images in my various BM threads I though I'd add these two old pre-joining BM models: The SEAC Mossie is the Tamiya 1/72 FB Mk VI with, I think, Paragon Designs tropical filters whilst the RAAF one is the Hasegawa Mk VI converted to represent a PR Mk 40 as operating out of the Darwin area in 1944-45. Mike.
  12. After already showing slight withdrawal symptoms, my dad´s gonna build another 109. Using the good old Hasegawa G-6 kit with decals from RB Productions. Doing "Blue 10" but don´t know yet if it´s gonna be a pro-German or Pro-Russian scheme.
  13. My dad´s gonna build a second G-6 besides the Romanian one, using the already initially for the other 109 built up fuselage. According to the Werknummer this one is an Erla built a/c. Selfmade rear cockpit hatch
  14. Hi folks! As a follow on to this thread that I started on the subject, here's the finished result! Humbrol colours used throughout, with DP Casper decals from this set. Very good decals, just be careful how you place them - they stick like limpits! Thanks to the guys to helped me with the colours etc - much appreciated! Constructive comments welcome! Mike.
  15. Here's my latest completion, peeps! It's the 1/72 Hasegawa A6M3 Model 22 kit, with markings from Rising Decals. It depicts an aircraft from the 331st Kokutai during the joint IJA/IJN attack on Calcutta in December 1943, hence the unusual paint scheme. Paints are Humbrol enamels throughout, H75 Bronze Green uppers, H168 Hemp lower surface plus tail and wing tip and H154 Insignia Yellow for the wing ID stripes. I used Humbrol Clear to gloss prior to the decals, then a final spray of Humbrol Satin varnish to dull it down. There's some weathering, but I decided to keep it minimal. I have to give thanks to Nick Millman for giving me some valuable advice on Zero colouring a few years back - thanks Nick! One under the flash: Comments welcome! Mike.
  16. Here's another one for RFI! Hasegawa's 1/72 Mitsubishi Ki-67 Hiryu (AKA Peggy) with markings from Rising Decals and painted with Humbrol throughout. I've had this in the stash for years, so I thought I'd dig it out and build it. One under the camera flash: Here's a clue as to how long I've had the kit: It's still got it's Beatties price sticker on it!! Comments welcome, Mike.
  17. Hi peeps, Here's my latest completion; Hasegawa's new tool 1/700 light cruiser Tenryu in it's late 1942 configuration. As is normal for my IJN builds no PE has been used. Paint is Humbrol 27 for the dark grey, Humbrol 160 for the waterline red brown with Sovereign Colourcoats IJN Linoleum for the ship's decks and IJN Deck Tan for the boat decks. Some minor rusting on the hull sides has been added using Humbrol 113. All in all this is a very nice little kit which builds up quite easily though a touch of filler is needed around the steel deck area on the bow. Mike.
  18. After Hasegawa 2016 (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235000783-hasegawa-2016/ - thanks 172flogger) I open a new topic for Hasegawa's 2017 reissues and monthly newsfiles. The first one will be: - ref. 08246 - 1/32nd - Boeing F4B4 - original kit: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/148093-hasegawa-js-066-boeing-f4b-4 Release expected on January 22nd, 2017 Source: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/product/08246/ V.P.
  19. This is a Hasegawa NP-3D (EATS) Orion. It is used as a missile range tracking aircraft and operated by the USN's VX-30 Bloodhounds. I have a couple of these in the stash and was not keen on the kit scheme so I decided to finish it in the current scheme. I used mainly the kit decals sheet supplemented by the Wolfhound graphic on the tail from an F/A-18 sheet (1/48 scale). I added the mostly correct antenna fit with a few scratch built blades and existing kit antenna. The kit includes a resin EATS radar panel and shortened 'stinger'. HF wire antennas are Eziline,
  20. Hi guys!. Japanese Thunderbolt from the box, only seatbelts and few cables added into cockpit. Superb kit, in terms of fit as excellent as Tamiya. I forgot to add antenna wire, but 15 minutes of work will fix that.
  21. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa B-26B Marauder, built from the box, with the addition of Quickboost gun barrels (QB72088) and True Details wheels (TB72026). I chose to represent 'Flak Bait', a well-known and well-documented aircraft from 449th Bomb Squadron, 322nd Bomb Group, operating from an airfield in England, 1944/1945.. 'Flak Bait' flew 202 missions until the end of the war. There's a number of original photographs on the internet, depicting 'Flak Bait' in various stages of weathering and in different weapon configurations. I tried my best to replicate what I've seen. Hasegawa's gorgeous boxtop artwork was used as a guideline, too. I painted with colors from Tamiya (XF-17) and Gunze/Mr.Hobby (H52, H53). Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cars & Bikes. Thanks for your interest, greetings from Vienna Roman Quite a lot of nose weight was required to prevent a "tail-sitter": Assembly was easy, as the Hasegawa kit has a very decent fit. I started painting with the base color, Aluminium. Then I applied Olive Drab to the upper surfaces and Grey to the undersides. Paint chips were done using Vaseline creme.
  22. I know I haven't finished the Luchs yet but I picked this wee beastie up at Telford, liked the box art, and parted with very few readies (cheap I tells ya) 'Oooo zimmerit!' I thought..... Suppose I should have checked before jumping to conclusions Sprue shot with holes because... I did a bit No sign of zimmerit So... do I go nuts and manually, yes, by hand, apply scale zimmerit coat to this.. er... very small, big cat. Have to say I've also been eying up the moulded in tools too I wonder if there are better tracks for it Or.. and this is where I could do with some input, should I go strictly OOB to see what I can make of a basic kit with glue and a lick o' paint? Ooooh input! That's one for you Johnny boy Fixit Phil P.S. Why do I never see the spelling mistakes BEFORE I submit the post?
  23. Second in my double build, this will be my entry using the older ghost gray scheme. I had already done a Gulf War F-15 about a year ago and did not feel like repeating. Instead, I had in my stash this wonderful and colorful F-15J from Tac Meet 2013. Lots of lightning bolts. Awesome cartoon bear in the fins. This is Japanese creativity at its best! The kit will be built entirely OOP. First steps were the cockpit. I read somewhere that some of the JASDF Eagles kept their avionics bay in the original metallic emerald color so I will keep them as such. There is sadly, no equivalent in acrylic so I used the instructions' recommended Gunze metallic blue-green which is a bit too blue compared to the real thing. Not a big issue frankly.
  24. Hi guys here is my Hasegawa F-16 from the Royal Netherlands Airforce as it participated in the NATO Tigermeet held at Fairford in 1991. I have build it for the F-16 STGB here at Britmodeller. Hope you like it.
