  1. I'm doing a double build this time (on separate threads), one of which is a Hasegawa F-15C Bitburg MiG killer in 1/72 scale. Why this one? Because I want to do one in Mod Eagle and the other in the older ghost gray scheme. Decals will come from the excellent Two Bobs "Eifel Eagles" set. The kit will be the basic Hasegawa kit which I have already built numerous times so this will be a relatively quick and painless build (I also have a lot of time on my hands!). The kit itself has good fit, although the engines are a bit fiddly and the nose section fit with the fuselage has some alignment issues. Surprisingly for a Hase kit, the cockpit has phenomenal detail not least the avionics bay; overall one of the best I have seen in 1/72 scale. The rest of the kit shows some age, although the panel lines are nice and thin, there's no rivet detail at all and there's a bit of flash here and there. Anyway, let's get on with it: first steps were the cockpit parts and painting some of the fuselage interior bits.
  2. This is another aircraft that was in the right place at the right time to have been flown by my late father, though in the absence of his logbook I can't know for sure. It's BN173, which was at 71OTU in Ismailia in 1944. I'm grateful to a number of people here who helped out with information and advice, in particular Troy Smith for thoughts about the outboard guns, and John Englsted who provided the aircraft code for this aircraft when it was at 71OTU. I've modelled it in a rather worn condition, given that it had already served with the RAF and SAAF in the Western Desert before it ended up with the OTU. Paints and weathering are LifeColor. I used most of an Eduard photoetched detailing kit, a Squadron vacform canopy, and resin wheels from True Details. The kit decals were mainly inappropriate for this aircraft, and in any case turned out to be very fragile with age, so the markings are from Xtradecal and the airframe stencils from Aviaeology. (Just after I started weathering this model, I found a colour photo of this aircraft when it was with the SAAF, and it was sporting a non-standard camouflage pattern at that time. So unless someone "fixed" the paintwork when it arrived at 71OTU, that's one detail I already know I have wrong. Sigh.)
  3. This model portrays an aircraft of the Headquarters flight from the 47th Sentai based at Narimasu Air Base near northwest Tokyo in 1945. (The Superscale decal instructions stated that it was Narumatsu, but it was actually Narimasu - check your sources always!) The 47th Sentai was (along with the 244th Sentai flying the Ki-61) tasked with the main Air Defence of Tokyo and the surrounding areas. This specific Aircraft is easily modelled using the basic Hasegawa kit (JT 67) . I wanted an aircraft with an attractive camouflage scheme which took some searching online to find the aftermarket decals from SuperScale number 48-526. I found the Hasegawa Model kit details to be very good, improved with the addition of 2 colour etch and flap sets from Eduard (48-503 and 49-297) and the Fukuya Brass Pitot tube which is hollow at the tip and much more refined. The etch set for the underwing flaps was an essential addition , as the Kit flaps are rather lacklustre and the etch set have holes in them with hugely increase the appearance and Historical realism of the Model . As is usual with my Japanese Fighters, I added the Vector Resin ‘Homare‘ Ha 45 engine to the Model replacing single Kit Part B1. The resin engine was not a perfect fit, but with some minor alterations to the cowling I was able to make it work . This made a huge difference to the model I think, despite the engine cowling making it hard to easily see, but I know its there. see the extra photos of the super-detailing added to the resin engine ........... The only other modifications I added were drilling out the kit stub exhausts (there are no Frank resin 1/48 exhausts yet for sale). I finally opened up both air scoops for the Upper Cowling ( Part B6 ) so the resin engine was more visible and I didn’t fit drop tanks as the 48th Sentai Ki.84’s had no need for them, being based near Tokyo. one thing about the Model , you should be aware of , is the idiotic undercarriage attachment . Firstly, whoever decided to attach the undercarriage with poly-bushes to the wing needs to go away and rethink their life, for the undercarriage legs WILL break. I rmade sure that I replaced the poly-bushes in the build , and added metal pins to the undercarriage legs and used superglue to fix the undercarriage legs be aware about the undercarriage union - for it is fundamental to the build and I can't see Hasegawa ever being able to resolve that without a new Mould Kit . If you learn one thing about the 1/48 Ki.84 Hayate by Hasegawa - replace the poly-bushes - or suffer a broken undercarriage sooner rather than later !! ********
  4. I bought this kit few years ago, before Eduard made their Limited Edition P-47 set, but i lost my appetite for this big fish . Now i have new airbrush from Gunze so it was a good time to check how it works. I used these additions for P-47: - Eduard resin wheels, - interior PE set, - RB model gun barrels, - Montex masks/decals

  6. Hello all this is my first RFI. Its an F-104G belonging to the Luftwaffe in the late 1970's and early 1980's. It was kept in the US and USAF markings for training purposes. The kit is the 1/48th Hasegawa F-104G. It is foiled for the Natural metal finish with light aircraft grey upper wings and white lowers. I used revell decals that i had spare as well as some of the Hasegawa stencils which sadly dont show up well in the photos. And the travel pod came from my spares box. It has 5 hardpoints but usually only a training bomb rack or travel pod was carried unless training for weapons delivery. I may add further photos of the model but was mainly testing to learn how to use Imgur.
  7. A long time between updates, partially because I went to the US for a couple of weeks . But it's finally done I've written a full build report at my blog for those interested. For those not interested here's some photos
  8. #23/2016 The first of two new opponents is finished. Hasegawa kit with Techmod decals, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics except Azure from Model Master, Eduard seatbelts. The model shows an a/c of the Royal Egyptian Airforce that participated in the Arab-Israel war and was captured by Israeli troops in December 1948.
  9. After the MiG-29 rollout, here´s my dads next jet project. He wanted to build a Phantom for a longer time now. Besides that the subject is related to my mother´s past, how so will be revealed when the model is finished. Gonna use the old Hasegawa kit with either Hi-Decals or CAM Decals.
  10. Ritchie's F-4D

    Well, since my Mirage seems to have stallen, I'd thought I'd try this for a change.....a kit bought in 1984. it will be built as Richie''s plane on the morning of his 5th kill. decals will be ancient microscale, with a black box cockpit, aires 'cans and wheel wells and seamless suckers intakes. with some Eduard added for good measure. Some serious thinning on the wing bottom.....I was warned and the same for the wheelwell....paperthin......... Top of the cockpit sides, I cut an L shape out of the edge so it would fit..... Left hand side right hand side Tub, the black marks are where some machining will be done so the nosewheel well will fit. 'burner cans.......must take better pictures, as the bluing doesn't really show up inside of the 'cans
  11. Hi guys, I will build a Mistel I in 1/32 scale. I will use a Revell/Hasegawa Messerschmitt Bf-109 G2 as the leading airplane. For the flying bomb I will use the Revell Junkers Ju-88 A4 kit with the Aims Mistel I conversion set. I think I have some extra's for the Bf-109. I will place some foto's later. Cheers,
  12. The second of my Hasegawa LL200 airliners that I saved from the shelf of doom. The kit sat quite a while there unfinished,no idea why I had put it there instead of finishing it... Well,together with the JAL 747-200,I reworked/repainted some parts and finished it. This was also a complete OOB build,with the decals provided in the kit.Despite their 20+ years already,they were still in fine condition. Hasegawa has made a superb 747-400 kit,accurate in shape and no fitting issues and unlike Revell with their,much bigger ,1/144 kit,also got the wingshape right I really like Hasegawa's LL200 airliner series and while refurbish and finish these 2 kits,I decided to concentrate on my other kits of that range and build or finish a few of them and take a little break from more difficult/time consuming kits. Korean Air's Boeing 747s were a frequent sight at Zurich Airport for a long time,but the daily service is now served by the smaller Airbus A330-200. Jumbos are a very rare sight at our Swiss airports these days On with the photos Cheers,
  13. Hello fellow F-111 fans, My contribution to this long-awaited GB is an F-111D, built from Hasegawa's F-111E boxing, in 1/72 of course. Markings will have to be from aftermarket sources, mainly to help render the different version, but also because the original kit decals for both my F-111E and F-111D/F boxings are sadly in a poor state. Other aftermarket bits and pieces I plan to incorporate are Eduard etch for the cockpit, Eduard canopy masks, a Master pitot and possibly a Pavla canopy. Enough about the 'plan', here are some pictures: Hasegawa F-111E by Andrew, on Flickr Instructions, etch, mask, canopy by Andrew, on Flickr More sprues by Andrew, on Flickr Wings, fuselage, canopy by Andrew, on Flickr Fwd fuselage, intakes by Andrew, on Flickr I've (sort of) cleaned the bench and will make a start very soon - maybe tomorrow night, which is close enough to 1st of April for me... cheers, Andrew.
  14. Sufa and Brakeet

    I started a Hasegawa F-16I Sufa in the middle of the Auto TF build as a target of opportunity during a road trip. This is the kit: The major assemblies have been completed (see the Auto TF WIP) and the airframe primed. Some AGM-142s and data link pods from the Skunk Works IDF weapons set in the process of painting. Still need touching up and decals. The airframe spent most of today in the spray booth. Next will be painting the various antenna and trying to smooth out the camo finish. I figured so long as I’m doing an IDF camo, then I should get the Brakeet F-16D out as well. This one has been sitting in the stash for a long time. Hasegawa hadn’t moved into the Block 40 and beyond variants at the time they issued this one. The kit came with a resin spine and some resin antenna. When I first tried using CA to attach the spine, the fairing just popped right off. I’m thinking that bottle of CA was getting too old as it has been taking a long time to set. Out with a new bottle of CA and I drilled out holes along the spine. I spot glued the resin fairing to the upper fuselage and then added more CA through the holes and clamped the assembly. This time it stayed put and I added the separate resin ECM fairing at the tail end. The ECM section isn’t as deep as the aft end of the resin spine, so some sanding is in order. Hasegawa gives only the full F-16C/D tail, so the upper portion of the vertical tail was cut away from the base fairing and secured to the resin spine with pins and CA. Thanks for looking, Sven
  15. While looking through my stash for something,I found the Hasegawa Boeing 747 kit that I started some time ago but never finished...I had somehow forgotten about this project and also another Hasegawa Boeing 747-400 that had been partially started and then ended up on the shelf of doom So,my actual builds were set aside and I decided to finish this kit first as well as the 747-400. As I said in my previous thread on the Hasegawa Boeing 767,the Hasegawa LL200 airliner series was a fantastic collection to get. Beautiful schemes,nice kits that build up in no time and a great selection of classic airliners.Sadly that Hasegawa almost went down to zero with their LL200 airliner range,so many of them became sought after collectors items. This one is an updated version of the 1989 release of their Japan Airlines Boeing 747-200,in the then new colour scheme of JAL. Here they added an extra decal sheet with the motives for the "Super Resort Express".This kit was issued back in 1994. Japan Airlines repainted some of their 747s and DC-10-40s in the "Super Resort Express" scheme for their Tokyo-Honolulu service. All of them had these birds and flowers,although in different colors. Hasegawa released a few of them as well,among the 747-200 were also the 747-300 and the DC-10-40. Despite its age,the decals still looked good and went on well,not always the case when dealing with Hasegawa decals...although I airbrushed the grey/red cheatline instead of using the decals as I found the color pretty much off compared to the original. The windows were sealed with Kristal Klear...an endless task on a 747... Painted with my usual Revell and Testors enamels and this time sealed with a spray thats actually meant for protecting photos or self printed DVD/Blu-Ray discs.It protects the surface from yellowing and is scratch resistant. It sets very nicely and dries within 3 minutes. I will use this sealer spray from now on on my future builds instead of laquer. I hope you like the Jumbo (next up in my "restoration from the shelf of doom" program will be the Hasegawa Boeing 747-400 Korean Airlines) Cheers,
  16. This was a sideproject that I had built on and off between other builds for over a year. The Hasegawa LL200 airliner series contained many popular airliners such as the Boeing 747 in almost every version,DC-10,MD-11,DC-9 and among many others,the Boeing 767. Sadly,most of these airliners from this famous series are no longer produced by Hasegawa and also the 767-200 is unlikely to appear again as Hasegawa modified the molds for the 767-300 which is still available. These models are very accurate and easy to build and in their 1/200 scale also not too big and vitrine friendly. My Hasegawa 767-200 kit was actually the Japan Airlines issue,but I once bought a larger number of decal sets for Hasegawa airliners on ebay,among them this nice Delta Airlines set. It was in pretty good condition despite its age,research showed that the original Delta 767-200 kit was released back in 1982. Some small details such as the cockpit windows come from a newer Boeing 777 Hasegawa set and the coroguard panels are from a detail set.Apart from that its completely OOB built. Paints are the usual Revell and Testors enamels,the whole model was then sealed with MicroScale Gloss clear. The Boeing 767-200 in the depicted "Spirit of Delta" scheme can be seen at the Delta heritage museum in Atlanta where it is preserved. Enjoy
  17. Hi Everyone I present to you a VFA-143 inflight display from the 2006/2007 cruise. Aftermarket bits used were fightertown decals, aires ejection seat, two mikes seamless intakes and attack squadron GBU-38's. Had a bit of difficulty strapping the pilot into the seat using the PE but I'm pleased with how it turned out. Painted using Mr Hobby and Tamiya paint and weathered with oils and powders. Will take some better photos when the sun is out!
  18. Latest addition is Hasegawa excellent 1/72 eurofighter typhoon of IX Squadron Royal Air Force. Per noctem volamus or There's always bloody something.. http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http://
  19. Hi everybody; after a couple of propeller builds, here I am back to a jet, and in 1/72! A few words to introduce this project: almost one year ago, I started the build of a Hasegawa 1/72 F-4 J Phantom II, this one: It was my first serious venture in 1/72 scale, and was a lot of fun. I learnt a lot from all the people who followed that WIP, and one in particular is Gene K; former USAF F4 pilot, he has been very helpful both in terms of technical info on the AC and in terms of modelling tips. Long story short, we became friends an I offered him, as a sort of way to thank him for the great help and as a tribute to his career, to build a model of one of the F4-s he has actually flown. He suggested the subject of this build, and not only that: he has actually donated me the two kits I'll be using for this, plus a lot of extras. Basically, following Gene's guidance, I'm going to modify an F-4 J Hase kit to become an F-4C, with the addition of parts coming from the greatly detailed MONOGRAM kit and a few aftermarkets (and some scratch building, of course ). This thread is going to be co-hosted together with Gene, and we'll go into more details in the next few posts. For now, what I have is: a completely cleared workbench (that is something totally new for me ) the kits Hasegawa parts to be added/modified: Nose sensor Stabs Seamless intakes, Gene's patented method Monogram parts: Tanks, pilons, gunpod etc Speed brakes and arrest hook Cockpit (amazing detail for a 1/72 injected kit!!!) Pilots!! One half fuselage has already been "treated" by Gene prior to sending me the kits, as an example to follow. He has also noted indications on the kit plastic Aftermarkets: Specific decals Stencils; these have been donated by another friend, Silvano (Phantom61 here on BM) AC Profile and most important thing: Now Gene will go into more detail about the project and the aircraft. Enjoy! Ciao
  20. Kit – Hasegawa 1:32 (original issue) Paint – Tamiya acrylics & AK Xtreme Metals Decals – Kagero Extras – Barracuda resin wheels, Eduard pre-painted etch seatbelts Republic P-47D-30 Thunderbolt Assigned to Lt. Frank Middleton 65th FS, 57th FG Corsica, mid-1944 An impulse build after the 1:48 Airfix Spitfire from a month or so ago. Five weeks from cracking the box to what you see here – and yes I know I haven’t painted the sway braces on the pylons and centreline yet. As usual with Hasegawa’s BIG kits it simply fell together without any fuss whatsoever, I was expecting ‘issues’ with the multi-piece cowl, but it behaved impeccably. The huge take-away from this build is the incredible quality of AK’s enamel lacquer’s. So much better behaved than Alclad and nowhere near as ‘smelly’. First time using Kagero’s decals and they worked perfectly also. Not much else to say, my first 1:32 completion in a l-o-n-g time and enjoyed so much I dragged-out my H’gawa 109G-14 as a possible next project… Thanks for taking the time to look folks and please feel free to ask any questions or make any comments or criticism. Ian.
  21. This is my latest build; a 1/72 S-3A Viking. Hasegawa is my go to company when I want to build something and this one was not a disappointment. Fit was very good, with one exception. The decals were good and I think it make a good build. The one exception to the good fit was the underside wing to fuselage joint which I had to fill with 10 thousandth card. Also used was the Eduard interior. Next up is the Mach 2 X-24A
  22. A new Hasegawa 1/32nd mould (The red logo below "2015 New" is "完全新金型" = Completely New Mold ) from the famous Zero fighter late type: Mitsubishi A6M5c Type 52 - ref.ST34 (08884) Release expected in September 2015 Source: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/hp/2015ajhs/2015ajhs_scale.html V.P.
  23. This was finished a while ago, but I have only got round to photographing it this week; the WiP is here. The big change here is the Aires cockpit set, an amount of work but worth it. I am fairly happy with the finish but the decals proved to be not as opaque as I would like, so some colour demarcations do show through in places. If you think the pitot looks a bit odd, the real one has subsequently been found and substituted!
  24. F-111D/F - Hasegawa 1/72

    Oh well - here goes: When I'm finished with the Caribou over in DeHavilland MegaGB I'll start on the Mercury in the Prototype GB and when THAT is done, I'll come back here to start on this: At the moment I'm going for the F with a whole bunch of Durandel missiles! Cheers and I hope to see you back here! Hans J
